Strength:

super light...always true...gold alloy nips look cool!

Weakness:

none

I have had a set of these spokes laced to a Ringle SuperBubba for over 5 years. They have had very minimal truing since. Otherwise, they are always true, super light and look good. They even have the Ritchey logo at the end of the spoke near the hub!!! Way better than wheelsmith spokes...I've broke several and bent way too many!!!

Strength:

Light, strong

Weakness:

Well i dont consider flex and the fact that they should no be used a weakness, so none.

These things are nice. Not easy to find now, but if you can snag em! They are among the lightest spokes available now. Im running the 1.8/1.5/1.8mm ones. These things are not for heavy riders or the drive side of rear wheels. They do flex, and matched with a light rim they will flex a decent amount even when at 110kgf. But to complain would be like saying "damn my car wont fly". Its not ment to be super stiff or for the rear end of a wheel, any 1.5mm spoke should not be used for that. BUt if you want the lightest things out there and are all about speed, these are for you. Just be careful when building. Truing takes a really long time with these since they twist so much, you can use those "twist resist" tools though. And they are lighter than revolutions(with a cooler logo)
