OUR OPINION
After two months of use and after about 1300 km I can finally talk to you about my DRC rims with DAMIL hubs. The wheels have a clean line but give my bike an aggressive style, the red nipples are perfect with the new RockShox Lyrik 2019.
Inside the tires I decided to use MrWolf's Bangers and it was the right choice to increase the excellent driving sensations. Read our test HERE and tips HERE. With the Bangers you can keep 1.2 / 1.3 on the front and 1.8 on the rear (the pressures are a subjective thing, do some tests and you will find the best for you) and have an exceptional grip on any terrain. The perfect mix to give 100%.

After talking with Gabriele in DRC and explaining my driving style, we have chosen together to use the Bigfoot with 30mm internal rim on the front and the Big Hit with 27mm internal rim for the rear.
The Bigfoot creates exceptional driving comfort, not forgetting the feeling.
The circle is rigid and perfectly holds the trajectory in berms with high precision. It is an easy-to-drive rim that is also suitable for beginners.
The Big Hit on the rear was the perfect choice especially for those who love aggressive driving like me, it is very precise arrivals in berms and the feeling of driving is great on rock gardens.

The Damil hub is very flowing and I love hearing its sound in the woods.
The bike is very smooth and easy to ride uphill even with banger and heavy tires.
I recommend to everyone the combination Drc + Damil to assemble a wheel, it is an excellent quality price option not to be underestimated with respect to more known brands.
Different ground, different trails and full gas on jumps I did not find any clear sign on the rims and it was not necessary to re-calibrate the wheels as happened in the past.
