Strengths:    Different than all the Zipps out there. Not super loud like some wheels. STIFF as heck! Price I paid for it.

Weaknesses:    Heavier than some other discs, the valve setup still requires the use of the "crack pipe" adapter (at least for the pumps i've used)

Bottom Line:   
The Reynolds Element Tubular disc is a very solid wheel. This thing is stiff! It's a little heavier than other stuff out there, but you can tell it's due to solid construction. There is no foam filler in this thing, just honeycombed carbon. Besides, weight doesn't matter when you're hammering the flats at 30mph! Its not as loud as the Zipp discs I see out there but it does have a more subdued whooshing sound. Not having to deal with valve covering decals is also a nice bonus. All in all a good solid wheel for tt's (unless you have a course with more than rolling terrain) and flat tris with not too much wind. Its a purpose wheel.
