Strengths:    Beefy, wide, and light rim. Black looks sick on it. Hubs are beautifully made.

Weaknesses:    none really, I only had a slight wobble in my front one (5%) because one of the spokes came really loose. I tightened it up and it was fine.

Bottom Line:   
Wicked good rim for the price. Very light compared to others. Definately worth buying a set.

Strengths:    Hmm. Possibly some. Front is still fine. They are light I am told. I'm confident the front will be fine.

Weaknesses:    Perhaps a function of the build quality, as the spokes used were too short apparently. But the rear bent. Demo9 was not bottomed at all, and wheel pretty much exploded slow motion style over 5 short runs.

Bottom Line:   
I did not think a new gen rim on a plush bike like the Demo would fall to pieces. I did not really thrash it either. As a result, I cast a spell of bad shagging upon their creators for one year.
