The rebirth of MAGs

TAG Wheels have reintroduced the bicycle MAG wheel... Some of us have been lurking around long enough to remember Skyway Tuff Wheels and Tuff IIs... 5 plastic spokes, cool colors- people could spot your rad-ness from a mile away. This time around, they're being aimed them squarely at the freeride and DH crowd, though, with DT 440 hubs, 36mm rims, and anchor-like 3700g/pair weights. That's despite new technologies in injection molding that Spin, Spinergy, and Aerospoke didn't have in the early 90s. Yes, that's well over twice what a sensible all mountain wheelset weighs nowadays, but damn they look cool... Check out their wheel converter to see just how cool...
