Strengths:    Wide rim, tubeless compatible, fairly light weight, smooth rolling and relatively aerodynamic

Weaknesses:    Wide Rim may be too wide to be compatible with some brakes. Fork and frame clearance may also be an issue

Bottom Line:   
I purchased these wheels to replace the 6 year old Fulcrum Racing wheels that came on my bike originally. As noted above, my only real issues with these wheels have been dealing with very tight clearance issues. Previously, I was able to run 25mm tires without any issue. Currently, I have to run a 23 mm tire up front to avoid the tire rubbing the inside of the fork leg. In the back, the 25mm tire originally rubbed on the brake caliper but, I was able to make some adjustments with a grinder to the brakes and that seems to have solved the issue there. Still looking for a fork that I am confident will have adequate clearance
