Strength:

Wide Rim, Spoke Pattern(stronger), Stiff, Aesthetics, Price

Weakness:

Weight(dont really care, Tires are near impossible to mount with raised rubber section in place. Rubber section removed shortly after buying, no more problems with tire mounting. May lose the pinch flat protection, not too worried about it, Just want a strong wheelset.

Can't beat the price, have been stiff and durable so far, great set of backup wheels for a budget freeerider.

Strength:

Like the wide rim and the strength and spoke pattern.

Weakness:

The plastic bead or strip that runs inside the rim to prevent pinch flats adds extra weight and also makes it very, very difficult to remove your tire. I ran a 2.5 on it and wound up cracking the rim just trying to remove it,I was almost ready to cut the tire just to get it out. I feel that this would be horrible if you were to get a flat out in the woods, it would probably be faster to walk out than change it.

Bottom line is that it was a good concept and that's about it, it should have stayed a concept and not be put on the market. Good thing I didn't pay what some are selling them for. I wouldn't recommend them to be honest.
