Strengths:    Light, strong, easy tubeless setup, look cool!

Weaknesses:    Bearings don't last long - even the upgraded bearings make sure you have an extra set on hand.
Rear free hub falls out if removed from bike - lock doesn't stay locked

Bottom Line:   
Look nice, stiff, strong, UST holds up. Had to replace rear bearings after one season and free hub doesn't stay locked. Keep an extra set of bearings in your toolbox - very easy to change
Take care of them and they take care of you!
Got a GREAT end of year and end of 26" line price on these!

Strengths:    Rims are very strong

Weaknesses:    the hubs and bearings are shot after only 10 months of riding

Bottom Line:   
Very glad I didn't pay full price for these wheels, after only 10 months of riding I started to feel a shudder through the front forks, took it to my bike mech and he told me the front and back bearings are shot plus there is travel in the rear, not a happy chappy at all, now I have to wait and see if the warranty will cover it, I gave it 2 chilis as when they were good they were awesome but then the bearrings went and they are not that great anymore

Strengths:    Light, fast, stronge, reasonably stiff, and they deflect very well.

Weaknesses:    The wheels will make a thunk sound when you hit smething hard. But that does not hurt the wheels performance at all.

Bottom Line:   
These wheels are awesome. Enough said.

Strengths:    these rims are great so far they are very light as mentioned before, they shaved 600g off my bike over the stock wheels. i notice they are much more responsive as well. these are very flashy rims also for anyone looking to add a little bling, very atracttive and top notch quality

Weaknesses:    none that ive found

Bottom Line:   
i think these rims are a good compromise between weight and durability, and whether your a weekend warrior or a hard core racer you just cant go wrong with this wheelset

Strengths:    Spin up fast . They have a really nice look to the wheels , true race look. The freewheel is quiet ( cant stand those loud ones ) ! The wheels are very very light as well.

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
These wheels realy "pop" ! They are very high on the bling factor scale. They truly are a nice race wheel due to their light weight. They spin up very fast and can stop on a dime depending on your tire setup. Overall very satisfied with this wheel setup.
