Strengths:    Very light and strong

Weaknesses:    price ouch! I work in a bike shop and cost was still $500

Bottom Line:   
Wanted to drop some weight with my wheels so I went with the pro-build w/ CX-ray spokes and the new lightweight hub from Velocity. Dropped from 1800g (Velocity Blunt basic build) to 1675g and the wheel has performed well. As they say, put your money in your wheels.
velocity offers good value for a durable product even if you are not a hipster looking for pink rims (deep v)
