I'm still new with this wheels but for the past month of using it I already feel the difference as it rolls smoothly than the wheel that I used before and just perfect for XC/Trail rides. Price is great on its category.

Strengths:    Light and nice looking

Weaknesses:    Hubs are unreliable

Bottom Line:   
I had a lot of problems with the rear hub. First one of the cups broke and than the cog mount. I decided not to rapare the hub. I bought a new shimano hub (it was the ony one available right away) and mount it.

I dont recomand it beacouse of the hubs. Like beter Mavic or DT Swis...

Strengths:    Price/quality, weight of rims, sound of freehub

Weaknesses:    Bearings

Bottom Line:   
These are truly nice wheels at a decent weight (1650g, rims 400g) considering the price. Never had to true them since I purchased them. They run fine with notubes rimstrip and any Schwalbe tire.

I was a bit unhappy with the fact that I had to replace the bearings of the front hub within 8 months after purchase (the bearings of my Hope hubs still run smoothly after >5y after purchase!), but I guess that should be considered normal with industrial bearing wheels (I guess I´m a bit spoiled with the performance of the Hope bearings).

I will replace these wheels soon with a Notubes ZTR race/AC wheelset to reduce weight during the races, but will keep this wheelset as a spare, because I think they are damn good!

Strengths:    Weight, price. looks.

Weaknesses:    Hub Bearings.

Bottom Line:   
The first VERY wet ride I rode these wheels, the hubs completely froze (literally would not turn at all) afterwards. On a snow ride a few months later, they're not totally frozen, but very rough. The bearings in these wheels are crap. Otherwise I really like the wheels, just need to replace the bearings.

Strengths:    Light, strong and reasonably priced

Weaknesses:    No skewers & not tubless

Bottom Line:   
These are good wheels, install them and just go ride. No problems to report, stiff & light, taken a few drops with no problems, I weight about 190 pounds with gear. I recommend these, or save up and buy Mavics for twice the price.
