Strengths:    Light, Responsive, Easy to mount tubeless, Light,

Weaknesses:    Aluminum freehub body damages easily with cassette wear, rim dents easily

Bottom Line:   
These are great wheels for the money and weight. At 1395grams(actual weight with stems and tape) they are more durable than I expected. I have two years and about 4700 miles total offroad on these wheels, including some 100+ mile ultra-endurance races. I am now sending them back to Stan's for relacing with new spokes and rims for $100 each. Not tooo bad if you ask me. I weigh about 150lbs and ride smooth but not nice to my wheels by any stretch of the imagination. Rear rim has a dent in the bead seat but still holds a tire tubeless no problem. Front wheel broke a spoke and can't keep it true anymore due to tension being compromised. Not bad for $950 retail. Would be nice if they had a more durable cassette body since single cogs dig into the aluminum badly. Bearings held up great and no problems there at all. If I can get two more years after the rebuild I will be more than happy.
