I’m ordering my new wheelset today but I can’t decide between a K1 drilled or undrilled rim.
I really want a gold undrilled b/c it looks awesome, but I don’t know if its super strong. Has anyone broke one? I don’t jump anything too gnarly yet so I think it will hold but I just want to be sure. Biggest set I jump is 7
My Tryall drilled is holding up fine… I built the wheel myself (I do pretty good but I am no pro). I do 7-8 set size drops. Ive ridden it at high pressure and low pressure without checking my spokes for a month or two. No problems whatsoever.
I used to be all about the undrill eyeletted rim, I soon got used to the drilled and after haveing less rotational weight its hard o go back. 'Specialy since the drilled is holding up fine, no flatspots or anything.
If you are not already bending you rims and have a decent wheel build the rim should be fine.
Cons of a drilled:
The distance between the nipple hole and the eyelets is very week. My old red try all (after two years of abuse) was extremely out of true. You need to pay attention to your spokes, and always keep them true. A good wheel build and maintenance is essential.
Koxx undrilled is way to heavy for me. About 2 weeks after i put it on, i sold my kh wheel and bought a nimbus wheel when they were 86 bux. Its a whole lot easier to flip the wheel when its light. As long as you dont plan to do many flip tricks, i would go undrilled since i heard they are quite strong. If you plan to do flip tricks, go with a drilled rim, since they are light and strong as long as you keep the spokes tight before anything big.
