I bouhgt this rim on Jan, because the original rim crack on the welded area, this rim is light and tough, it held a lot of abuse so far w/out any sign of break up.
The Excel Takasago aluminum alloy rim is the benchmark in off-road racing rim technology. Every Excel Motocross rim is engineered and designed to perform in extreme hostile environments where other rims routinely fail. Fact, Excel has won more Motocross and off-road championships - worldwide - than all competitors combined! Part of the secret is in Excel's exclusive 7000 series aluminum alloy which has a 50% higher yield strength than the competitor's 6 series aluminum. Also, the exclusive know-how in extrusion design, complex multi-step forming, advanced robotics welding, and in hard anodizing such a tough and complex material is key to Excel's strength and world market dominance.
Note: Rim only, spokes sold separately.
