Got them for a superb price, way less than half price but they have been used a hand full of times but look brand new.
If I get them in time I will race on them at weekend, hope they wont end up crisp shaped, weight limit is 75kg and Im 77kg!!!
But they are going on a full suss Trek top fuel so hopefully will get less abuse due to the suspension.
(Been running Hope Pro 2's on 355 (now called Crest) rims for the last two years so not sure what to expect or feel different, prob nothing!!
The engagement is instant, I mean instant!!
Their is a noticeable difference how fast these spin up and roll quick. Also how so very stiff they are compared to the 355's with Hope hubs that I also use.
All in all a fantastic wheel set and they are so SHINEY !!!!
They are super stiff, think due to the spoke design with is a thick aluminium rod rather than spoke. No spoke nipples so they spin up really quick and roll very fast.

I don't think the lack of a spoke nipple would effect how fast a wheel accelerates. I would assume the quick spin up may be a result of the pawl engagement in those hubs.
Regardless though, those are beautiful wheels. Enjoy!
Agreed not the lightest, but the engagement is awesome. My other bike has chris King rear hub with extralite front to keep the weight down for a lighter setup.
If you want colorful wheels and fast enagement i9s are the way to go.
Nice set of wheels!
