Strengths:    lightweight, strong, stiff, durable

Weaknesses:    a non-foldable tire is difficult to set up

Bottom Line:   
I have never had problems with this rim. For sure, there are lighter rims, but for a beginners and advanced cross-country-rider's purpose this rim is perfect. It's was already installed in my bike and I drive it for 4 or 5 years and about 15000 km now. Even in rough conditions (eg. Garmisch-Partenkirchen) the rear wheel is strong enough.
