    Strengths:    Well made hubs, smooth ride, nice looks

    Weaknesses:    None so far

    Bottom Line:   
    Nice and rare wheel, Xero's top of the line MTB XC wheel rides very smooth but without any discernible flex. Looks great with the low spoke count (24) bladed titanium spokes. Hubs spin great, developed tiny amount of play after 2 years, easily fixed by a quick tightening. Round and true after 2 years of rocky, rooty and bumpy trails. Not designed for big drop-offs/jumps but have taken everything I could give them and still feel like new. Would buy these again.
