Bottom Line:   
Just to add onto Alex Peach's review, those RIMS are laced to Saint hubs, therefore they are not paired with the Syncros hubs, which does not make them the Syncros FR/DH wheelset.

Strengths:    Very stiff,stays true, doesn't dent easy, looks great, easy to make tubeless. Its just an all round strong set of wheels!

Weaknesses:    Only weakness would be that they're a bit heavy for a race bike, other then that a kickass wheel set.

Bottom Line:   
If you're looking for a great set off wheels that are going to take a beating and last you all year, I would say this is the wheel set for you!

Why do FR/DH bikes usually have such low seat tube angles?
