    Strengths:    good price, pretty stiff, stays true, really good price, front hub is smooth and easily servicable.

    Weaknesses:    heavy, internal nipples require 85mm extention wrench (specialty tool) to service or rebuild, swedish ss spokes are overkill, rear hub heavy and loud

    Bottom Line:   
    it was a good wheel as is but heres the low down. rim is not as hard as zipps. you can use fingers and squeeze rim and feel flex, but has no bearing on lateral stiffness, but I feel i should say this because I could not do this with a zipp 1080. bolozano hubs are fancy and smoooooooth, but the swedish spokes are heavy. overall a very fast and descent race wheelset. ran over pot hole with front at 30+ mph heard loud thud like it hit carbon, looked at rim post ride, wheel was fine. I was worried cuz I was using 19mm tire in the front and thought I damaged the rim. wheels are stiff with heavy duty bladed spokes and will probly hold a 200 pounder, but heavy to spin up. I'm 140lbs so I had these suckers rebuilt with sapim cx-rays radial in front, 2cross drive and radial non drive rear, on dt swiss 240 front am classic rear hubs. Now they are lighter and the rear spins up alot better under hard sprints. then I used original hubs laced them to cheap rims with dt revs and use them on cummuter bike. I recently demo-ed a zipp 1080, the zipp and my rebuilt vicenza felt the same in a hard sprint.
