Strengths:    Lightweight and strong. Excellent customer service.

Weaknesses:    So far none.

Bottom Line:   
Very smooth bearings. Arrived straight, and only needed a few 1/4 turns to keep them that way for 18 months. I'm 190 pounds and they seem plenty tough for how light they are.

Strengths:    Fast, solid, true

Weaknesses:    Front wheel catches wind

Bottom Line:   
Switched off the Mavic Aksiums on my Scott CR-1 Team, put on Conti GP4000S skins: WOW. At least 10%, maybe 15% faster everywhere. Cannot beat the price at John's website...mine are 2013 models, btw. I wan't fully prepared for sidewind effect on the front, but if you are ready, it's not a big deal. I'm not a racer, just a fast recreational rider, so aero spokes might help.

Strengths:    Light, responsive, track beautifully and roll like they are on frictionless bearings.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I have about 500 miles on these wheels, which I bought to replace a set of Reynolds Allez that had simply worn out after 6 years of great riding. The Neuvations are about 10% lighter than the Reynolds, but show no loss of tracking on the downhills or in the wind. Very responsive when climbing or accelerating. Most fun thing is that I am pretty light, but these babies have me rolling past much heavier riders on the long downhills. Using standard spokes (and getting extras thrown into the box) will be a plus if I ever pop one.

Strengths:    What else the price! nice looking wheels,light, easily moved up 2 mph faster! The 2013 model must be an improvement, im over 200 lbs, no flex no noise on hills smoothe as silk bearings,good to go!

Weaknesses:    Nothing as of yet, a little stiff but Mavic aksium cant compare to these wheels or any other for the price.

Bottom Line:   
2013 is the way to go with this wheel set!

Strengths:    Price. Value. Weight. Durability.

Weaknesses:    Not as aero as some very expensive carbon wheels. I can't think of any other weaknesses.

Bottom Line:   
I put almost 6k miles on them last year, and I'm well past that mark that now. They're still true. I only weigh 155 and am not real tough on equipment. Still, these have aged much better than all my other wheels (mavic sup/chorus, crummy mavic cosmic equipe, surprising Titans, etc.). My wheelset weighs about 1540 g. Zero maintenance to-date. No creaks. Good braking track. I recommend these to my friends, and see a lot of them around. I'll buy these again.
