Strength:

Best Rims in its class, these were replacements for my 4yo ride. The hubs are a little noisy, if I cycling at night I must be mindful for my neighbors. But the feel of the rims esp when engagement feels solid and nice. The rims feel like they are bulletproof, even during trails. No creeking sounds, and overall feels tight and solid

Weakness:

None so far, unless u count the writings on the wheels. My wife said "black flag" sounds very piratish 😁

Strength:

weight strength and all the stickers peel off easy, good quality hubs, and everything the last guy said

Weakness:

spokes hit the disc brake on the front rims with the Niner RDO fork. the dish is correct but they still hit

would buy them again. they are super fast light as air and seem stronger enough to survive SS and an all ridged setup

Strength:

Weight, Stiffness, Tubeless compatability, confidence in strength.
Stickers peel off easily enough and then the appearance is on par with what I like.
Sound from the freehub is audible, but not annoying.

Weakness:

None so far.

For the price and consistent quality these wheels deliver it's amazing other companies havn't followed in Sun Ringle's footsteps. I mean BST rims, stans tape/valve stems, Eyeleted rims, and bomber hubs.
I really favor these rims since they have the Stans NOtubes licensed Bead Seat on the rim along with Eyelets on the rim. This isn't a deal breaker for some, but Stans rims are not offered in an Eyleted version. I prefer the extra strength especially when running them on a SS. Simple Yellow tape and valve stem had me riding tubless in no time. Super easy setup with a floor pump.
Cartridge bearings, super easy maintenance, GREAT customer service from Hayes/Ringle if you ever need it.
I run the Charger Experts on my 26" FS bike for the same reasons as stated here. They rock!
