 got my vote, beaut pic!! im gunna get neg props, but what is the + side of plastic rims?? i just want to know what the positives of them are..

 Never thought i would see the day with a DH bike running 5 spokes

 WOW!!!!POD!!!!!!Totally POD and major props to the rider and photoghrapher!!!!!!tup
  • 27 21
 there not plastic either i don't think, almost certain its carbon fiber. there pretty much industructable, and never need to be trued. down side is that they weigh a fair bit more then your usual wheelset.

 Your rims would be screwed if you ever landed wrong. You wouldnt be able to tork the spokes to aline your wheel.
  • 24 2
 those wheels are made from a plastic composite that probably has carbon fiber in it.. but anywho, great shot, well deserved p.o.d.

 sick pic,
and iride89, don't prop yourself Smile

 I'm pretty sure there isn't any carbon fiber in them (they'd be lighter if there was)... they're built from a hardened plastic just like mag wheels from back in the day. The thing is, they're actually engineered... and engineered well, plus they're molded around the DT Swiss 440 hubs... so it's probably gotta be the most low-maintenance, care free wheel set on the market! They're pricey though. Frown

 dont give that gut neg props, he's right- the problem with those rims is once you buckle them they cannot be fixed as you can not aline them therefore you will have to buy a new wheel, thats why spokes are a better option as they can be maintenanced if u fuk up
now + prop him biatches

  • 23 2
 sentenced2life - i think you missed the point a bit there. the wheels wont buckle because they are made from a composite material. they will most probably flex just a little bit in a situation where a normal metal rim would buckle.

 Apparently the original mag wheels for bmx could be thrown in the freezer if they went out of true and they would straighten back out. Unfortunately the new ones don't have that feature.

 OK all you people that dont know what what these wheels are. Check here
tagwheels.com/frx5.aspx
They are not mag wheels they are completely different. and they are not made from plastic: A high quality composite material with exceptional structural specifications was selected to provide the optimal balance between impact, stiffness and density properties

and yes they are indestructable but weigh a ton!

 hobbnobs: its 'sore' not 'saw'. i guess it depends what bike theyre on whether they look good or not - personally I've never seen a set untill now. I guess theyre for the people who want functionality over aesthetics.

flag jordilunn101 (Mar 9, 2009 at 13:43) (Below Threshold)
 It dosent matter though becase the weight gives you more speed. in an ideal world the bikes would weigh nothing to through around but riders rather gain strength over the weight.....
  • 5 0
 top downhill racers don't ride indestructable wheels because they don't have to worry about buying new ones. They could ride a set of "all mountain rims" for all it matters, as long as they hold up through the race run it doesn't matter because they can get replaced right away with new ones. Granted, durability is an issue, but not as much to them as it is to the average, unsponsored rider.

 I find it funny how quick people forgot mag bmx wheels. People commenting on how they would break. Remember mags, you bent them, or cracked them, you put them in the oven, then freezer for a few days, and you have a perfectly true wheel. Ahhh reminds me of the days when I got into bmx.
  • 2 0
 Sorry guys, but these wheels ARE plastic. Granted they are composite, but the resin is a thermoplastic, embedded with glass fibers. So technically you could call them fiberglass too. People think just because a part is plastic, or carbon fiber, or whatever, that it is automatically good or bad, heavy or light, or whatever. The fact is it's always dependent on the design and the manufacturing execution, particularly with composites, because there are so many different material systems that can appear the same and so many different manufacturing methods.

Supposedly un breakable. Just like the old mag wheels. weee. These aren't no hed carbon, or spinnergy road bike wheels. DH, FR, Dirt jumping etc.

 Hey i want to few things.
1. Are these wheels strong enough to take beating for general offroading?
2. How light are these compared to Deetraks?
3. Do they make "GHWAAAA-WHAAAA" sound like disc wheels on a road bike?
4. How much these cost?
5. Are they made of carbon ?

 on a socom......BS ive ridden both
  • 10 6
 they're about 1.5lbs heavier than a 'normal' wheelset (this if from someone i met, riding a set) and 1.5lbs, you hardly notice. anyway, you don't want super low weight for DH.

 i've had an interesting experience with mag wheels, i had them on my ragleigh burner (Old School XD) anyway i was riding local downs and decided to ride down with out using my brakes (stupid i know), anyways i was going down and as i approached the end i saw a concrete well and well... boom! front wheel in peices, i flew and landed in stingers, bent forks, ruined tyre and tube, ha i couldn't walk for a few days

Frown that ruined my burner

but any way i love those wheels!

 those wheels are really heavy, have super high rotational weight, and if you mess it up there is no way of truing it, they're dumb oh, reducing your rotational weight by one pound is the equivalent of taking ten out of your frame, yeah...its a big diff, thats why tubeless is an added benefit

 Tag rims are a type of resin, they weigh a ton.....Carbon fiber rims on a DH bike would probably crack. almost bomb proof, but a normal wheel build I still think is better for the weight difference.

 Wicked Photo, love it all except the rims haha. Those things are garbage, take those suckers into there air and they are like helicopter blades they try to pull your bike to lay horizontal. Yes they are near bombproof and never need trueing but they have so much pull turning you sideways, in my opinion they suck. and they are made of a polymer/carbon fiber mix i think (could be wrong its been awhile since i seen the specs book(they came to our shop asking to have a rider ride a set for the year and see how they were)).
