Detailed info on feel is a big ask. It's completely subjective!

I've put BST Carbon wheels on mine. It's the first set of carbon wheels I've ever experienced.

I didn't do before and after measured lap times or standing quarters to show any improvement so can't give measured comparative results. That said, I'm very happy with the conversion. I described it to a friend of mine as "like the improvement new over well worn tyres gives, only times 5".

The bike is lighter, quicker to steer and is happier doing fast changes of direction but all without any loss of stability. The changes are not "in your face" but they are noticeable and they are definitely for the better.

The best endorsement I can give is that my next bike will also have carbon wheels, despite the cost!

I have a set coming I will be doing static weight comparison to stock but that really is only part of the picture.

The MOI or moment of inertia I cant measure and that is what makes such a difference dynamically to the bike.

I have had a couple pair and they are always a huge difference in the bike, the stock wheels on the h2sx are pretty heavy so I expect the difference to be very dramatic.

besides all mentioned above it also gives your suspension less weight to control and in my experience makes it more complaint

I am a dealer for them so if you decide to get them ill make you a great deal

Dave - Please post a picture once you get them installed - Especially if they are the ones with the green accents.

Once I actually see a pair on a bike I'm not sure how long I could restrain myself from ordering a set.

Those green BST wheels that 2HYPR fitted to his SX SE looked amazing - good enough to buy on looks alone. Unfortunately, his photos aren't available any more so I'm looking forward to seeing vcyclenut's wheels.
