Ok so Shadow just came out with their newest rims. What do you guys think of them? I'm thinking about getting them but it's so sketchy getting a new product without having reviews to look at.

From what I've heard about their other rims all of them are pretty good so i would imagine this one would just be a slightly modified version (i haven't seen it yet) but yeah im always hesitant to buy a new part too until it has some solid reviews

Heres pics of both front and rear. They added like the cursive font sticker like the local bars and captive forks. and they are 1mm wider than stun rims. All in all look very nice in my opinion.

the stun and orbis are both really good strong hoops so i'm willing to bet the corvus will be..the only con i would give shadow's other hoops is that the paint wears really fast for some reason but they're very structurally sound

Yeah im kinda new to the aftermarket rims considering this is my first fully custom build. I don't think the paint will be too big of a problem due to the fact that I don't run brakes.

Wider rim, Spoke's holes are more offset and the rim is thicker where the spokes contact the rim to stop pulling through.

Seems solid too me.
