Strengths:    light, strong and work as advertised

Weaknesses:    a little pricey, but that has always been the case with Mavic, Alu freehub body galls just like every other Alu freehub body made

Bottom Line:   
I have now had these wheels on my Air 9 Carbon for over one year, several thousand miles across Asia (Thailand and South korea. I am a Clydesdale at 220+ lbs 6'2". (Thailand: flat, sandy muddy, hot: Korea= very steep rocky trails)

Wheels are set up tubeless with Schwable racing ralph TLR EVO Snakeskin, XTR 10spd cassette

Riding style: exploring back country remote trails and commuting to work.
I have had to true the rear wheel one time as it was 1mm out of true - (I am picky like that). These wheels have performed great with no issues other than basic normal maintenance. The rear freehub shell has 2 small gall spots in the aluminum where gears 7 and 8 have pushed slightly into them (every aluminum hub I have ridden has done this). A moment with a small file cleared that up. There is no appreciable play in the bearings and I ride in all weather conditions; Rain, snow sleet and shine. I spoke with Mavic at length before buying them and they steered me to the ST over the SLR as the wheel is stronger and only 90g heavier. I would have no issue buying them again

Strengths:    Looks

Weaknesses:    Do not buy these wheels!!! They suck! The hubs come lose all the time and the spokes start creaking after a few months and they just keep getting louder and louder. Customer service sucks and are very very slow.

Bottom Line:   
Stay away from these wheels I know 3 people that ride them and they hate them for the same reasons!!!!! These wheels are not worth 20 dollars!

Strengths:    Looks

Weaknesses:    Rear wheel and hub suck!!!!

Bottom Line:   
Rear hub sucks, the hub was loose before I even rode it! I have to stop about every mile or so to tighten up the rear hub, my used specialized wheel set I picked up for 50 dollars are way more Durable, the local lbs where I got them said this normal and they would eventually stay snug, well 20 rides later they are worse than before and the rear wheel is a noodle way to flexy . They might be ok for fire roads but not anything else. I feel like I got ripped off on these wheels!!!
