Considering them for a wheel build.
Same wheel different decals as far as I can tell.
Ibis says bash the shit out of em in enduro.
Stans says don't enduro.
They are really light....
Which has my interest and concern....
The old Ibis carbon rims seemed petty tough.

I rode the Ibis rims forever and at 200lbs never had an issue. I would call myself a fairly picky rider when it comes to line choice, I am not really a smasher...Take it for what it's worth but I found them to be good.

S35s came on a used bike. I did have a stick take out about 12 spokes and one did pull a nipple through. Ibis gave me crash replacement price which was equivalent to a new aluminum rim even though the warranty is for original owners only. Otherwise they have been proven to be tough.

That's definitely not a feather weight and you can get pretty rough on em I'd think, but not a full on enduro/DH for sure. I got some narrow 400g 29er rims I've enduro-ed and DHed to hell and back, but they might be stronger due narrower.
