rant are like cinema is to verde and duo but to shadow and subrosa but they're not very well know yet and used to come on stock subrosa completes (the old version of that wheel) i think. if my they did, i have it (the old one, none female) on my bike and its holding up so far i need to tighten the spokes because i haven't trued it since i got it and its slightly out of line. i dont grind though but i land front heavy allot

i wouldnt get it if you're prone to landing on the front wheel. it's the same hoop as the nitrous ring, i have one off my stock bike. it was decent but i put a little hop in it casing it once

There is no way the Rant front wheel rim is a Nitrous Ring because the Rant is an aero-style rim and the Ring is straight wall.

nevermind but they're probably about the same, and the ezra is way better for the same price

you really can't beat that price for a female sealed front, plus most front hubs are very similar in style nowadays, most all use a 15mm center axle with chromoly bolts and 2 sealed bearings so honestly I say get it

They could be comparable in quality. Unfortunately, Rant doesn't give material or joint specs. I'd go with that Ezra too. I love the 36mm width on those rims.

They're pinned and most likely 6061 aluminum to keep the costs down

No. Cinema and Duo are affiliated with verde but they are both pro quality brands that have a team of pro riders. Rant is a price point brand that shadow started. They make stuff for a rider on a budget.
