Strengths:    Lightweight (1380gms per set).
Bonded Aluminium braking surface.
Red nipples for bling.
Great Value ++++


Weaknesses:    Durace steel skewers are heavy - get some titanium replacements.

Bottom Line:   
Most of the rides around Sydney are on rough roads (with rough drivers) and lots of hills.
These wheels are light for climbing but strong enough to take the multiple bumps and potholes of Sydney roads.
They have needed minor truing only once (rear wheel only).
They spin freely and track well on descents with great stability and the aluminium laminate on the braking surface works brilliantly. There is no annoying squeal (carbon braking surface is soo annoying) and brakes work strongly when they have been tested in the Alps, Pyrenees and at Angliru.
Great value for money

Weaknesses:    Poor customer service. Replacement parts are difficult if not impossible to find.

Bottom Line:   
I started having problems with my Shimano wheels after 2 years. I started having blowouts and parts were wearing out. Shimano refuses to sell parts to end users, and bike shops are not interested in helping you find replacement parts. They would rather sell new wheels. I am switching to ROL where customer service is first.

Strengths:    As above, I love them!

Weaknesses:    The alloy braking surface bonded to the carbon laminate is thin so not really a wheelset for all year use. I use them only for summer. However, after a years use, no sign of wear on the braking surface yet.

Bottom Line:   
A fantastic set of wheels for those who do lots of climbing. Very light especially considering the price and those of wheelsets of similar weight and performance. Feel superlight on steep climbs and roll beautifully. Noticeable quicker than other wheels on accelerations and climbing out of the saddle.

Strengths:    Smooth, light, quiet, and robust.

Weaknesses:    None, maybe a bit more bling?

Bottom Line:   
Excellent product. Smooth, quiet, and light! I ride rolling hills and these are ideal wheels for that terrain. Touch wood, no maintenance issues either. Stylish in an understated way.
