Strength:

Light, Strong, Rigid. Straight pull spokes that are light, but do not break. Nice smooth running hub. Rims not carbon and don't get trashed by rocks. Well built and tensioned.

Weakness:

None!

I break far too many spokes on wheels with J-bend spokes so I had to give up on them. Was running Mavic Crossmax with Zicral straight pull spokes (broke those sometimes too) but got tired of all the hub bushing and ratchet pawl issues and occasional broken rims. I am not disappointed with the XR 1450 spline 29. Light, strong, rigid and haven't broken anything yet riding in AZ on very rocky terrain (had them 6 months so far). I highly recommend these.
