The Havocs are really sweet if you can afford them.

light?

They are pretty light.

I run them on my DH/FR rig and they hold up great too.

if you're gonna get revolutions, azonic outlaws would be a better choice, imo

The Outlaws are almost the same as the 36mm Revolutions. He should get the lighter AM Transition wheels that don't have an Azonic counterpart.

yes, they are almost the same, but outlaws will save you $50

Go look at Transition's wheel lineup. You're missing the point. Transition makes three separate wheelsets. Azonic makes one that is equivalent to Transition's heaviest. The wheel we are talking about is also $10 more expensive than the Azonic.

azonic lowered their prices. outlaws are now 250 msrp so you're still saving $30. I think his best option would be to go with the XT/Singletrack combo. they run on a bunch of websites for around 150 for the set

My friend has the outlaws and i have the Forte Locos and we can't tell the difference between both of them, they are exactly the same exempt the Locos are $100 cheaper
