Strength:

Look sharp

Weakness:

Haven't found any yet

These rims came with a wheelset I bought at LBS. I'm sure they were taken off a new bike that was upgraded. Never had a problem with them. Recently I laced on a new rear hub myself. No problems yet. I'm 190 and ride like a bulldozer. Lots of logs, small drops and some small jumps. I think most complaints about rims have to do with a bad wheel build more than the rims themselves. Tension and truing is key. One chili off for not having reinforced eyelets in the spoke holes. Like I said, no problems yet, but I'm just sayin...

Strength:

Durable

Weakness:

None that I`ve found

I`ve ridden these wheels pretty hard (a relative term for moutain bikers) for five years and they`ve held up just great. They`ve survived several crashes and come through better than I have.

They get me out and back. What more can I ask for?

They`re a good servicable rim for the money

haven't had any problems what so ever

Weakness:

none that I know of.

OEM equipment on my 06 Prophet. No problems with them what so ever, they have remained true since day 1. While I'm not a hard core biker, I'm no girly man and like to push myself, I've thrown a lot of stuff at this bike and have not had any problems.

Strength:

They LOOK like Carbon

Weakness:

They are weak and soft and it doesnt take much to break them.

These rims almost cost me my life.
On a downhill ride I got about 70% of the way down the hill that Ive gone down a ton of times before on my old bike and I hear a PING noise.
Next thing I know Im waking up on the ground with a rim that is snapped at the seam.
I shattered my Helmet and wrecked the handlebars on my bike and it was only cause of these rims breaking.

I dont know what Norco was thinking putting these on an All Mountain Bike but they are a safety hazzard - Im not a extreme rider and I dont do jumps, Im just in it for the workout (Im 5'10 and 185lbs)

Strength:

pretty neat looks

Weakness:

one second day ride I hit the curb with rear wheel pretty hard, but not that hard. Well the rims is not as perfect it was before.

I was expecting more from these rims, as a starter they are fine but i don't recommend them..

Strength:

They are 'light'...look good...thats all.

Weakness:

Are WEAK, do not hold up, i destroyed them on my first ride. DO NOT buy them unless they come stock OEM on your bike. Buy a higher end mavics like Xc 717, MX 727 etc..

Dont bother.
