As per topic title, I'm looking at getting a new rear wheel and will be lacing to a Profile mini cassette. I'm looking for a rim that will stand up to punishment but is also very light.

What's everyones thoughts?

G-Sport Ribcage or Rollcage, Odyssey 7KA or Hazard Lite, Kink Orion, Demolition Zero, Alienation Runaway

Any of the above should be fine.

For a very light rim, I recommend the Sun Rhyno Lite XL (14oz)
very sturdy construction and the eyelets help with overall rim durability
Now I will preface it and say that while i ride flatland, I do lots of whoppers (bunnyhop tailwhips) and the thing is extremely straight for never truing it

The Gsport Rollcage and Sun Big Baller would be my 2nd/3rd choice (16 and 19 oz respectively)

Any rim that has stood the test of time. There are a lot that have been around for 10+ years. That's a good sign, when the design has never changed. Hazzard lights, 7ka, demolition zero, most sun rims...There's more. And g-sport is always good. Of course
