Strengths:    Strong and sturdy for XC riding. Hugi hubs have been good to me. Only trued rear wheel once in 1,800 miles. Cartridge bearings have stayed like new for 3 years. Good price compared to many others, especially Mavic at same weight.

Weaknesses:    Not the lightest wheelset. Lame-O plastic grommet to hold Presta stem in Schraeder hole, always falls out during tube/tire changes. I Shoe-Goo'd mine in place.

Bottom Line:   
I read a bit from Magura when they introduced these wheels. They said "this is as light as a wheelset should be to perform reliably." I loved my Martas so much I trusted them and bought their setup. Can't comment on lighter wheels like the American Classics, but these have been steadfast for almost 2,000 miles of rocky XC. Do I still dream about lighter wheels? Yes.
