Aliexpress wheels and they break.Carbon wheelsets for mountainbikes are not the best idea because upon impact they fracture.

Not quite the case. They're about add durable as aluminum wheels, but yes, should they fail, they will shatter instead of bend. For the most part, they offer greater strength at lower weight. Mostly for the weight weenie crowd. For XC, go with confidence. Anything more, and start looking up reviews, real world long term testing, and only go with to brands.
