Xyclone Discs.  I have been riding the crap out a set of these ultra-lightweight wheels  since 2003 and they are still going strong even after 6,000+ miles of trail riding.  Wither coming down from the summit of Mount Fuji in Japan or dealing with the gnarlyness of Southern California's Noble Canyon these wheels have just plain performed and have proven to be a worthy investment.  

I am quite stoked with Spinergy as a supporter.   I have been riding their MTB wheels since 2003 and have been thoroughly impressed with their wheels. All of their wheels I have used have outstanding performance. and amazing durability. Pair all of that up with exceptional customer service.

  Fall Line FR/DH Wheels.   I been using these wheels on my long-legged "play" bike since May 2006 and quite simply these wheels wheels hold up to some serious abuse.  They are exceptionally light for the burly factor they have and the wide rims gives just about any tire a wider footprint.  I have not had a single issue with these wheels including even minor truing.  

Xyclone Enduro. These all-mountain wheels are an awesome addition to the Spinergy wheel lineup. They strike a wonderful balance between the burliness of a FR/DH wheel and the lightness of XC race worthy wheelset. These wheels have been taken some good abuse and are holding up great. The rims are a little wider than the Xyclone disc and the spoke pattern uses fewer but larger strokes to keep the weight extremely light while adding strengh.
