Strengths:    Strong, held up to a lot of abuse, stayed true with very little attention, fairly inexpensive, pretty easy to convert to tubeless with rim strip and Stan's. Convertable to 10mm thru bolt (with kit from DT)

Weaknesses:    A bit heavy, but not bad for an AM/FR type wheelset. The hub is starting to make some waa waa noises after two years. I think it just needs some lube.

Bottom Line:   
Seem like good all around AM type wheels. Nothing particularly special about them but they have held up well and been pretty maintenance free for two years.

Strengths:    Light, durable wheelset, even spoke tension, stays true.
Hubs are (DT HUGHI FR) very service friendly and easy to rebuild.

Weaknesses:    Problem with rear freehub (failed) - mended under warranty.

Bottom Line:   
The Wheelset is sold in Europe with Mavic XM321DISC rims, as opossed to this stated here. for my XM321DISC equiped wheelset.
After a year of hard use (220lbs/193cm) on my Heckler, the rims are still running true (no attention whatsoever)
Regarding spoke strenght/tension.....Had some accidents with branches (getting caught up in my wheels) and soo far its 3:0 for the wheels.
The only prob I had with the wheels was the rear freehub mechanism (the HUGHI prawls) getting toasted.
Aparently because a small piece of one of the prawls got chiped of and toasted the rest of the engagment mechanisem resulting in freehub failure.
Somehow annoying.
But was fixed in 15 minutes by a DT service center under warranty.
Since then no problems.
