i have the supra BHs and they have held up very well so far. cased a couple prety big jumps and theyre still almost perfectly true. im not sure how singletrack would hold up though.

i got singletracks on my bike. sun's got them pegged as downhill/4x rims. they're not the strongest dh rims, but they're good if you're "light" on your wheels and are a smooth rider. they won't stand up to too much (extreme) freeriding though. the supras should be more suited for that stuff.

I know that Singletracks are heavy. I havent had any experience with the Supra BH rims though.
