The Kinlin XR200 rim is 19mm wide and 22mm deep. It's a non tubeless clincher rim. The whole reason for this wheelset is its light. This rim is the lightest production rim available.
The spoke count is 24F/28R. The spoke used are Sapim CX Ray's. Alloy nipples are used. CX Ray's are used not because they are aero spokes but because spoke twist is avoided. Spoke twist can weaken the spoke and on wheels with rims this light that's may lead to problems.
Your going to ask about weight limits well I have to say it's around 80kg. However that does not mean heavy riders cannot use them. It more depends how you ride. I weigh more and would be fine on them. It's the way I ride.
