Strength:

Bomb proof, Great Value, disk or rim brake compatible. Stay true even for a 215lb rock bashing rider.

Weakness:

Not the lightest but I will take durability over lighter rotational weight. I don't race so I'm not weight weinie.

Flexability to do disk or rim brakes. Most important is price and reliability. They fit well with my 2.1 tire. Probably not great with 1.9. I gave them 5 chiles for value and rating because these wheels do what they are suppost to. Again not for XC racing but weekend warriors should not hesitate. 2 wheels for 150!

Strength:

Strong rims for the weight, good hubs that are fast and strong as well.

Weakness:

none

For the price they are awesome. I doubt you could find a better wheel set-up for the price. I'm over 200lbs and I do a couple of drops sometimes (no more than 3 feet) and they stay straight and true. Hubs are alot faster than my old stock ones. Good deal.
