Kinlin are a Taiwanese manufacturer of bicycle rims and they are very good at it too. There rims often get rebranded
The 24H symmetric and 28H asymmetric rims have BORG22 logos but the other rims are plain gloss black or polished silver.
The XR22T is a 450g rim that is 24mm wide (19mm internal width), 22mm deep and is an alloy clincher rim that is also tubeless tyre compatible. It's width make it quite stiff allowing lower spoke counts. Better still there is an offset drilling option so rear wheels get a better tension balance.
Kinlin use a KLM41 aluminium alloy (niobium is one of the alloying elements) to create a very round and flat rim. It has a thick spoke nipple bed so is fine for any rider.
The rims is more than suitable for road riding or racing or CX use and those that just want to ride, can all use this rim. I am actually struggling to find anything I don't like about.
