Strength:

Absolutely BOMBPROOF,

Weakness:

I don't really know, they might be a bit heavy but not bad at all.

I got a set of these rims on a 2006 felt jumpshot and cased the hell out of jumps for 3 years. They didn't budge at ALL. In fact, they are still so perfect that when i ordered my new frame and parts i decided to use the same wheelset because they were still ready to take a beating. BUY THEM

Strength:

Strong, stylish, 20mm front hub rolls very nice.

Weakness:

Kinda heavy but not overly.

Get them if you ride dh aggressive and are looking for a good quality cheap rim. They are great for strength hold their true and after a year of hard riding i have only ever needed to replace one spoke and its because i dropped it sideways on a rock :D.

Strength:

writing this review because was rinding yesterday and hopped a big curb and came down on the other side where my rim landed directly on another curd edge that i didn't see and i felt the curb hit my spine through the rim. i hit so hard that i got off to listen for air and there wasn't even the slightest bend. i thought for sure that i was buying a new rim and possibly going to the chiropractor.

Weakness:

might be a bit narrow for my size and riding

i weigh 235 lbs and have a long history of rendering bikes useless.

Strength:

Strength & durability

Weakness:

Possibly the fact that it's not a welded joint, but this hasn't proven to be a weakness yet.

I'm at least 203lbs with gear, and I hammered these wheels pretty hard last year, lots of rocks, cased a few doubles/step-ups. After a whole season of riding, they weren't even out of true. I did get on tiny little flat spot, but it was very superficial. Overall, a very good rim. Since they were stock on the bike, I don't know the price, so they'll get a least a 4 for value, and 4 for overall.
