After cracking my rim I was thankful to have the crash replacement warranty. Ordering the rim was a breeze zelvy responded quickly and kept me well informed. I had the new rim within 3 business days.
I got the guys to build up a set of wheels for me using their 35 and 30 mm AM rims onto supplied Chris King Hubs. To complete the package I had them make up some custom decals to match the hub colours. Absolutely outstanding product with incredible rigidity. And they look schmick too! Highly recommended Australian product!
Awesome wheelset, onyx hubs are super smooth. The wheels dart into corners and hold grip so well. They accelerate redicuolsly fast. Very happy
Awesome wheels, super stiff, way more traction than the alloy wheels I had. The onxy hubs roll super nice!
Haven't really put them through the ringer yet but they're sturdy, well built and look great.
The 40mm are perfect my 2.6 rear and 2.8 front tyres.
Only minor complaints are a couple of unanswered emails, took longer than expected to build because they had to order spokes, and the price of custom colour stickers seems a little OTT.
Unfortunately I had to utilise Zelvy's crash replacement warranty but the process was smooth and the new rims even better than the originals. Built onto my Chris King hubs and with custom decals, I couldn't be happier :) Huge thanks to Greg and the gang at Zelvy !
perfect service, very quik
I recently submitted my claim for a crash replacement rim using Zelvy's brilliant crash replacement program for owners of these great wheels.
The transaction went super smooth and the help was well above and beyond my expectations along with great value for money.
I don't hesitate recommending Zelvy's to any biker that will listen, their product and customer service is 2nd to none.
Rim was expedited quickly, I had it built up by my local wheel builder and I was back on the bike within a week, and did not actually miss any riding time.
good fast clear communication. fast turn around and delivery. cheers Zelvy team
Good communication and reasonable delivery time. Easy transaction
Love the wheels. So good to ride.
Except sadly on my second ride with a freshly built crash replacement rear wheel I've broken it again. The wheel has probably seen maximum of 3 hours rolling action. Devastated...
Service for original crash replacement was awesome.
Have loved these wheels since I got them. I only went to 30mm internal with (up 5mm) but boy do they make a difference with grip. Who ever is building their wheels for them deserves a pat on the back and plenty of beer. I tagged a rock after a jump and heard the horrible noise. Sealant filled the hole, big crease and hole in side wall. They stayed up and true to get me back to my car. (20min ride). very happy with service and will continue to support them and tell everyone who wants to listen and even test ride my bike. (Who doesn't want to have a try on a Santa Cruz)
This is my third set of Zelvy's. They have transformed each bike I run them on. Strong yet compliant build that takes a hammering time again. Have never had to true them on any bike. Highly recommended.
The wheels are very round, very black and have nice straight spokes. Built up with a pair of my own Hope hubs, they roll well with the usual loud Hope freewheel sound. Fitted the wheels up with tubeless ready Continental Mountain Kings (2.2). Sealed up straight off with a floor pump so that makes them a winner before even going for a ride. The wheels give a nice wide footprint to the tyres and running about 25 psi, there was no sidewall squirm through the corners. coming off Stans Arch rims, where I have to run 30psi to stop sidewall squirm, it was a big improvement. So overall the wheels get a pass with flying colours
Have never ran any better rims.
This is what you need...!!!!
Been running the 40mm rims for 12months now, best money spent on my bike in just how much better the suspension works aswell as extra tyre grip and bike stiffness
Been riding the 35mm 29er rims over two seasons now. 80% of this time on a rigid hard tail race bike.
The wider rims make a 2.2R/2.35F rubber at low PSI an amazing experience. Lots of grip, a bit of "cush" but most importantly the stiffness and bomb proofness (is that a word?) is just out of this world.
I have 4 of these wheel sets and would not consider anything else.
These rims work well for XC as well as Trail/Enduro - I would definitely recommend to anyone building up at 29er rig.
