Strengths:    looks, strong, reliable, smooth smooth smooth

Weaknesses:    The rim's are expensive to replace. Did them over 5.000 miles without any problem but there finished now.. Tires are a harsh job to get one without damaging the rim.

Bottom Line:   
Great wheels for the money and I bought them second hand with 10.000 miles on the counter. Would buy these wheels if I can find them!

Strengths:    light strong , very smooth hubs

Weaknesses:    tyers far too difficult to stretch over rim

Bottom Line:   
i've had these wheels for two years now and race and train regularly on them almost every day over bumpy roads,i've done about 8000 miles on them so far and won 13 races, they are very light and responsive, however the tyers are horrendous to put on as the rim seems too big, i've nipped countless tubes with the tyer leavers because of this,i'm now going to buy mavic es to replace these wheels.

Strengths:    smooth hubs, easy repairs, "tune your ride" with tension, very cool looking, unlike many aero wheels these are not hard to handle in a cross-wind

Weaknesses:    just not stiff enough for bigger riders, make sure you have a good mechanic on any low spoke count wheelset

Bottom Line:   
I bought these as a race wheel after considering the Kysrium SSC-SL. While a very good wheelset, they did not fit my style of riding. Let's just say I now own the Mavic's and sold these.

My problem with the wheels started about 3 months ago when the rim cracked. After having it re-built twice, I just could not keep them in true. The hubs are smooth, I loved the aero aspect, they can be repaired with any ordinary spoke and can be tensioned to customize the performance. I am a big guy (6'2" and 225 lbs.) and like a stiff wheel. To get them to ride how I liked, the spokes had to really be tensioned up. I think that took a toll on the wheels.

At any rate, for a smaller rider who wants great aerodynamics with a comfortable ride, these are great. They are reasonably light, the hubs are VERY smooth, they would be great for touring or entry level racers because they are comfortable and quick.

A very nice set of wheels but just not right for me.
