Product Description

Hard anodization creates an oxide layer on the rim to give it additional micro-hardness. This hardness helps prevent corrosion and gives the rim greater durability against the sidewall erosion caused by brake pads. And the gray color -- both on the rim and on the sidewalls -- looks stupendously Pro.

Strengths:    None i have experienced...They lasted 5 Seconds!!!!
Uh eh.... Nice Stickers, makes a good Hoola Hoop around my waist...maybe

Weaknesses:    5 Seconds is a short lifetime i think...

Bottom Line:   
Well.. After lacing them up (i havent done that for the first time) and rechecking the spoke tension i was up for a test drive around the block. I barely made it out of my Garage then
WHAMMMMM. My rear wheel broke at the welded joint and imploded. It flapped around the chainstay like a beartrap and ruined the paintwork on my brand-new Frame. I examined the rim
and found out that it was sloppy welded. For the top-line of Mavic road-rims this ist not especially a budget rim and therefor the production quality of this rim is very poor (my Rigidas were much better) . By the way....I never had any problem with my T217 despite the other reviews here.
