Strengths:    Centerlock rotor, UST, Cheap on clearance, Steel spokes (but proprietary I think), freewheel sounds good but not loud

Weaknesses:    Too early to tell. About 20 hours of hardcore riding. I use other bike for mellow rides. 24 spokes-I am 180 lbs.

Bottom Line:   
Good wheelset on sale. I wanted Havens, but these were waaaay cheaper on sale, and I like Shimano stuff. Some don't. I should repost in a year after many more rides, but these are working great after some hard crosscountry rides with jumps on 4 unfamiliar trails to boot-you don't always pick best line on new trails and these hold up.

Strengths:    Strong hubs, seems very rigid.

Weaknesses:    Don't know yet, so far only a few drops and it still seems to be true

Bottom Line:   
I needed some wheels for my new fork and these were in my price range. So far it feels great, improved control and handling, even when going off the trails. I'm pretty aggressive on parts so will see what happens.
