Mountain Bike Action USA have just tested the NEW e*thirteen

2012 is the first time component manufacturer e*thirteen has entered the complete wheel market and they have not done things by half. A range of four wheelsets is available from XC to DH all of which feature full scandium rims, hand build construction and precision engineered hubs to meet riders needs.

The Hive, a brand based in Petaluma, California, is dedicated to improving components with both conventional and not-so-conventional ideas. The TRS+ wheelset is the result of the collaboration between two of their brands, e*thirteen and Chub hubs.

Conclusion

While these are not the lightest wheels, they are more affordable than carbon options, more durable than ultra-light aluminium options and remarkably stiff for 29er wheels. These wheels would be right at home on any trail bike
