Strength:

light, got them a good price, easy to set up as tubeless

Weakness:

not terribly strong for an "all mountain wheelset," garbage rear hub, narrow rims, only available with center lock hubs, proprietary spokes are difficult to replace when you break one, should have a 10 mm rear thru axle.

I got a great deal on these and bought them hoping they'd make a durable everyday wheelset. Well that wasn't the case. The rear free hub lasted about 2 months before it broke and Shimano wouldn't replace it under warranty claiming it broke due to abuse. The rear wheel was also knocked out of true after just a couple months of riding. I'll also throw in that the 6 bolt rotor adapters I bought from Shimano fit the hubs poorly. The rotors would wiggle back and forth under hard braking. For a high end wheelset, these things are garbage.
