TRS Boost Wheel 27.5in
If you're looking for burly aluminum wheels that withstand the rigors of aggressive trail riding and enduro, all without costing a fortune, you can find solace in the TRS Boost Wheel from e*thirteen. The TRS rim has been improved upon from the previous generation, with a wider 30mm internal width to accommodate modern trail tires, and thicker sidewalls that are 6x stronger in impact tests than their predecessor. The hubs are TRS Race SL, with a durable 660 stainless steel freehub delivering 6-degree engagement for a quick pedal response that's especially noticeable on techy climbs or mashing out of corners to regain speed. The hub shell uses all-aluminum construction for a good balance of strength and weight, with angular contact bearings for a smooth ride and exceptional durability.

- Q & A
Newly improved for 2018, the E.13 TRS is a great AM/trail MTB wheelset -especially for $550.
*Strong 6061 alloy rim (with sleeved joint).
*1,800g total wheelset weight.
*30mm internal rim width. Perfect for 2.4-2.5" wide tires.
*Tubeless-ready (of course).
*New, all-aluminum, CNC machined SL hub.
*Tall hub flanges increase spoke triangulation and wheel stiffness.
*Good warranty (5 years).
*Very quick 6°/60 point freehub engagement.
*All for $550 total.
And I love the i30 rim size.
Perfect for running 2.5" tires. Like... Maxxis Minion DHF 27.5 x 2.5 WT on the front wheel and Maxxis Aggressor 27.5 x 2.5 WT on the rear (or DHR II on the rear for enduro). It's a GREAT combination.
The wheelset has been bombproof so far. My only concern is the reliability of the hub internals/seals. Six months in (including Winter riding)... so far, so good. I'll report back if any problems.
