Strengths:    performance warranty

Weaknesses:    durability

Bottom Line:   
After tacoing a front wheel in an accident I purchased a Forte Arriva. It worked fine for about 6 months, but then spokes started getting loose. None snapped, but the tension was wrong, and one spoke couldn't be tightened. I was able to get the Performance shop
to replace the wheel with a Mavic Open Pro which is a stronger rim with regular lacing.

Strengths:    Lightweight, Inexpensive, Performance guarantee

Weaknesses:    Rear Wheel snapped 8 spokes eight different times. Spokes can only be ordered through Performance

Bottom Line:   
I've tried a lot of Performance products and have generally been very happy with price/quality until this wheelset. I snapped more spokes on this then any wheel set in my riding history (15yrs). Even after 3 months Performance gave me a full refund. A weight limit was later added but never mentioned when originally ordered. I weigh 175lbs
