    Strengths:    Light, flexible and looks good.

    Weaknesses:    really Soft. Not strong enough for trail riding. my front rim was ruined in 3 months of strong trail riding on weekends.

    Bottom Line:   
    Probably good rims for XC, too weak for me...

    Strengths:    None

    Weaknesses:    Very soft and flexy. I was always afraid of this rim folding in half while I was riding. It never stayed true for more than a couple of days.

    Bottom Line:   
    This rim should only be used on the road. This rim made me so nervous I never rode hard with them on my bike. I can't imagine them holding up with extended trail abuse. I replaced the rims with Mavic 717's and couldn't be happier with the stiffness, and I haven't had to true up the 717's in almost the year I've owned them.

    Strengths:    Good looks, not so heavier, strengths,

    Weaknesses:    None yet.

    Bottom Line:   
    it is good performance for money, enough for XC riding, and i think it is better than Mavic 717 on viewing of the strength and finish. For mavic 717, it seems to occur the defect which occur a breakage on the rim joint of all most of them. so Many Mavic users and I think Mavic welded rims are not reliable on rim joint's durability. I would like to recommend the DT swiss rims, you would better to build DT swiss rims than Mavic.
