Hey all,

Does anyone know what the difference between an excel GEK-612N vs a GEK-611? Both are stated as 19x2.15 and 32 hole.

Rims part# is specific to which (bike) hub and spoke dimension that it’s being laced up with

Not to hi-jack a thread, but I've heard and seen some MX and SX teams moving away from the A60's and using rims that aren't as rigid, for more flex and feel? Anyone have any further info on this?

There are different hole patterns for different brands/hubs. The GEK-611 seems to be for Honda. Can't find GEK612N. Here are some part numbers: https://rkexcelamerica.com/products/excel-rims/a60/

The GEK612N is made to fit Excels Pro Series hubs and is not an direct OEM replacement. The GEK611 is for stock OEM Honda CR/CRF’s so the spoke pattern is most likely different.
