Strengths:    Alloy, nice looking, and extreemely smooth.

Weaknesses:    The rear wheel doesn't spin quite as well as the front. When I emailed Formula they said because of the triple seals they needed a little more time to break in. They do however spin better over time. So far I have put about 500 miles on them.
The rear wheel kept slipping and I had to replace the skewer with a Shamino. Now no problems with that.

Bottom Line:   
Part of a wheel set with titanium spokes. I purchased a set of Velocity Wheels and they come with "Velocity "hubs but they are made by Formula. The front wheel especially spins exceptionally well and is very smooth. When I took the wheels for a quick true. The wheelbuilder commented how smooth the hubs were. He made me feel the truing stand when he spun the wheels to show me there were no vibrations.
