Strength:

Super stiff, light and strong. Ive put a couple hundred miles on these wheels so far on both XC and AM trails and they are still true and straight. They are 28 hole with aluminum nipples so the weight is a bit lower than a 32 hole rim and supposidly they then accelerate better. So far I have no compaints.

Weakness:

They are not UST out of the box, however I converted them effortlessly and now they are pretty unbeatable.

These are great wheels for the price. DT Swiss makes an amazing product and they got it right with these. They are light enough for XC riding and strong enough for heavy duty trails.

Weakness:

There a bit loud when something hits a spoke.

Great wheels! I've got but loads of hard miles and they stay true. The freehub sounds great. Doesn't engage as quick as my Kings but didn't cost as much either. There fairly light too.
