• I'm about 90kg in mtb riding gear but want a lightweight (say sub 1600g) wheelset that doesnt flex too much.
    Right now I have Mavic Crossmax sl pro wheelset thats around 1500g but often feel the rear wheel flex a fair bit and they go out of true often.
    Am I simply too heavy to expect wheels in this sort of weight range not to flex or feel like cheese? Bike is a santa cruz 5010 and the riding I do on it is mostly trail centre stuff up here in Scotland. 7 stanes etc

    Carbon wheelset around the same weight likely to feel more solid? Try loose weight instead? I'm not exactly a fat bastard - 6ft2 and could lose 5kg at a push!
