    Strengths:    Light,smooth,high quality hubs,very easy to make it tubeless,the whole wheel set is entirely made by DT Swiss,Fast rolling. excellent for X country riders,durability,low maintenance.

    Weaknesses:    Maybe price,but you get what you pay.

    Bottom Line:   
    Not much to say for one of the best wheel sets on the market. The first time I saw it at the LBS it looks like a cheaper one because of it's appearance,Compared with Mavic crossmax,but once they are on the off road,you feel the difference.It worth the extra cash.

    Strengths:    Light, Springy, incredibly smooth bearings. Nice little wear indicators on brake track. Pro-lock nipples won't vibrate loose.

    Weaknesses:    None really,... Not bullit-proof. No quick releases. A little expensive.

    Bottom Line:   
    Good, light, wheels for XC use. Hubs are the best. And they are quiet feewheeling. I am175 andI have taken some chunks out of them on rocks and they are still pretty true. Nice all-black look.
