 carbon tech has come a long way in the last 10 years, carbon is seen everywhere from cars to aircraft, i would trust a carbon frame and handlebar over an alloy one any day, im yet to brake a carbon bar, and i have a box full of snapped alloy and bent cromo bars.

 These are the last aluminum rims I need to see: No product should ever fail.

 That is DT Swiss EX 1750. They are not marketed as a DH rim (www.dtswiss.com/Wheels/Wheels-MTB/EX-1750 - DH bar is empty) and had been crashed much harder than the rim in this thread.

Get a grip and a clue.
