Great, but there are some things you need to know!

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Expensive
When I recieved these and first tried to fit them, they were extremely tight, and I couldn't get the tyre beads to click in - as seen on the Bontrager instruction video.
After some hunting around on the forums, I discovered you first had to take out the existing fabric/mesh tape that came with the wheels and that made them fit much better.
Then I had to go to my local bike shop to borrow their compressor. My hand pump just didn't have the oompf required to pop the bead.

Expensive but perfect fit.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: perfect fit
Cons: Expensive
Bought these to fit my bontrager tubeless ready mustang rims. When I first received them I thought they looked quite poor, they are made of a light plastic and they were all bent and twisted in the packaging.
However once you stretch them over the rim and they snap into place you realise what a perfect snug fit they are.
Downsides: Expensive and you still need to purchase a valve.
