"On many mid-range bikes, a common point of failure remains the wheels. Riders are frustrated by lost trail miles while their bike is stuck in the shop for repairs on sub-par wheels.
Hmm. Very true, my 2018 Rocky Altitude A70 came with Race Face wheels (AR30s I think). After 2 years, I had to replace both wheels because hairline cracks. I'm no more than 175lb with gear and I'm not particularly aggressive rider. So RF is correct about their wheels.
Just my $0.02.
