Strengths:    Braking, acceleration, high quality hubs that with a little mtce will last for ever.

Weaknesses:    Expensive, so i dont use them for crits
Spares are expensive and in the UK hard to come by but that applies to all Shimano stuff.

Bottom Line:   
These wheels are super strong, offer very fast acceleration and for some reason give better braking than my alloy DA wheels even in the wet!
They are not as light as some other makes BUT the weight is mostly in the hub anyway so its not noticable.
The only draw back is that as they are expensive so i dont use them in crits!
With either Conti Comps or CX Corsa's i have found the wheels to be very comfy but very stiff at the same time, far less road buzz than my DA clinchers.I would recommend these wheels to the well heeled and any cyclists with performance ambitions, the ride will blow you away.
