Strengths:    Strong light, a great upgrade from a factory wheel set.

Weaknesses:    Not as light as the "pro" wheels, rear wheel lost tension fairly quickly, but that can be resolved at your LBS.

Bottom Line:   
A strong and light wheelset translates to momentum and confidence in your rides. Mavic has an inexpensive, but far from cheap wheelset here, they call them entry level, but they are far from it. Great value.

Strengths:    Top Quality build with excellent materials. Designed well for the purpose in mind

Weaknesses:    A bit heavy, a bit expensive

Bottom Line:   
I got these as they were able to give me the transition from a V-Brake set-up to disc. I needed some wheels that would see me through the change over.

Luckily I picked up these from a local guy, who had used them purely for training on the road and turbo trainer.

I was surprised to find that they were heavier than the older wheels I took off.

However, once rubbered up and brakes adjusted I could tell these were a huge improvement on what I had before. A very tight wheelset, transmitting the trail feel really well. The braking surface was so good I did question my intention to change to discs soon, these were stopping me very quickly indeed.

I have red a few reviews where the build quality has been a bit questionable. This set I've picked up have shown no signs of this at all. Straight and true as anything, with bearing that seem so smooth and quiet.

They do seem a tad expensive, when compared to their rivals and the weight of them, but if you can get them 2nd hand don't hesitate.

Strengths:    looks, sealed bearings, disc/ v-brake option, price, good weight

Weaknesses:    havent found one yet

Bottom Line:   
I know 3 months is not long, but they sure have made a diference in comparison to my prev wheels. Ive raced a couple of hard races and the hardest was an 8km time trail climb up a very nasty pure rock hill (almost no sand or dirt, just that break-a-bone, crush-a-helmet,framebreaker, wheel desfiguring kind of rock!!)which included the descent and they passed the test with flyng colors! Rolls smoothly on paved roads and really help on normal climbs.
I also asked for some shimano xt-something wheels which were around $700 but store assistant said if he had the choice he would go with mavic cause of their sealed bearing hubs!!

Strengths:    Strong, way less flex than my old Mavic/Shimano setup. I think they look really cool. Disk brake compatible.

Weaknesses:    Heavier than the non-disc compatible Mavic/Shimano assembly these wheels replaced.

Bottom Line:   
Great upgrade.

Rocks no longer deflect the wheels, they either roll over them or spit them out of the way.

Well worth the money.
