Strengths:    Roll beautifully, amazing acceleration and inspire confidence in descents & hard cornering.

Weaknesses:    Clearcoat peels off leaving spotty appearance over time.

Bottom Line:   
I'm a 100kg rider and have had these for 3 years and they're still as true as the day I bought them. I ride a lot of B grade roads and these things are robust..haven't lost one spoke so far. Bearings are easy to adjust and they role superbly. Depending on what wheelset you've previously had, the C24's have the ability to transform a bike's performance...they're that good.

My comparisons are based on Shimano WH 501's, Shimano WH 560's (great wheel) and Mavic Kyserium Elite's (not too shabby either).

Strengths:    Ride, responsiveness, braking

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I have Dura Ace and also Record. I prefer Campy, but when a company produces a flawless product, they deserve proper credit.
Shimano have produced a wheel that is just without fault.
Their responsiveness is noticeable and surprising at times and the ride is as smooth as a box shape rim; what more can you ask of a clincher wheel?
If my aero race tubs ever give up the ghost, I'd easily consider the C50's just because these are so impressive. Great work, Shimano.

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.
