Strength:

Got the Velocity K525 rims with XTR hubs on my 99 custom Zaskar. V.Light and supa-strong, have withstood a fair amount of abuse and have remained straight and true. Impressively light and strong offering excellent value for money compared to other rims.

Weakness:

None

These Aussie hoops offer excellent strength / weight for the money. Top stuff and thoroughly recommended.

Strength:

Looks beefy.

Weakness:

Isn't beefy. Heavy! Hard to inflate tube. Must have long valve tubes that LBS dosen't carry in 2.1 width. Dents easily! Cracks on welds in middle of race!

I thought that the extra width and depth of this rim would equate to extra strength. All it adds is extra weight! These are hard to find appropriate tubes for so I got an addapter. The problem is the addapter dosen't allow a tire guage to work so I had to guess air pressure.
The rim dents very easily on the side walls! And it cracked on the weld ruining a perfectly good race day.
Bottom line... get this rim if you are looking to add extra weight to your bike with little or no added performance.

Strength:

strong. i've been using these on a tandem that had destroyed two mavic 521 rims at the back. the deep v's have remained straight and round.

Weakness:

narrow.
deep - only a problem if you can't find long valved tubes, or your lbs can't get you a campagnolo valve extender.

well worth the money, i just wish they still had a uk importer.

don't confude them with the less deep models.
