Strength:

Nice gunmetal color, weight ok (not like a ZTR rim either). I also like its 26.6mm width, just awesome.

Weakness:

I would have preferred it to be welded rather than a "sleeve joint" shield design. Not a confidence-inspiring inner design. Although they have nice rim color, graphics are not cool. A bit expensive for what it is.

First 29er wheels, so I can only compare these with my previous 26" wheels, which is not fair/objective enough IMO. Anyway, the truth is, these rims have remained very true after 10 real rides in the trails where I live, dealing on rocky/dusty condition, as well as about 40 daily commuter rides with minor abuse -jumps, bunny hops... ya know! Still plan to switch to ZTR rims because of the strenght/weight ratio, welded joints, and look.
