Strengths:    Super stiff mated to super reliable DT Swiss 350 hubs. J-Bend spokes are really easy to find. Tubeless ready and easy to mount tires.

Weaknesses:    Other than spending $1k+ on wheelsets, none so far

Bottom Line:   
I put these on my 15 Trek Remedy 9 and couldn't be happier. The tires mounted up tubeless with a floor pump due to the dish and hook less design. I replaced the Bontrager Rhythm Comps and it saved approximately 220 grams. The width of the rims spread the tires out to almost plus sizes. The tire pressure went down 7psi and traction has increased tremendously.
