    Strengths:    Light weight, good bearings, freehub fairly quiet. Can be retrofit to Kinlin XC-279s as is out of the box which are an amazing improvement in ride quality-Continental GP4000 tires in 25c measure out to almost 28mm and can be run at 85 front/90 rear, probably even less if you're lighter than my 200 lb body weight.

    Weaknesses:    Stock rims are a tight fit for many tires-solved by relacing with Kinlin XC-279s.

    Bottom Line:   
    Good value set of wheels with a cheap upgrade path to the wide rims all the cool people are riding.

    Strengths:    Very light, stays true

    Weaknesses:    Cracked at spoke hole after 5k miles (less than one year), no support

    Bottom Line:   
    I upgraded to these from Oval wheelset. they were lighter and rated to be durable. I then noticed cracking at the spoke holes on the rear wheel and tried to get some feedback from Vuelta but they didn't stand behind them, nor did the shop I bought them from as it had been a year.

    If you get a set that doesn't crack, they are a great wheelset...just beware there is a history of cracking.

    Strengths:    strong, stay true, roll up quickly

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    Bought as my first upgrade, Wheels are extremely light and have lasted through several seasons with no complaints from me. No cracks like others have mentioned, and they have stayed true all the while. I'd have no problem recommending them to anyone looking for an inexpensive, light training/racing wheel

    Strengths:    Low weight, good warranty, roll up fast, inexpensive

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    I have almost 10,000 miles on these and they are great wheels.
    Cracked rear rim after 9 months- they sent me a new set.
    Broke spokes (3) first 4 months and only 1 since then
    I weigh 175-180 lbs- I don't think a 300$ 1500 gram set can take really heavy riders.
    I love them!

    Strengths:    Low price, rolls fast

    Weaknesses:    many broken spokes, poor quality in nipples. Wheels become very noisey, creaky. When that begins to happen check you nipple as the are getting ready to fail

    Bottom Line:   
    Wanted to have a everyday value for the money wheelset that could handle my clydesdale weight.
    They lasted for about 2 years with about 150 miles per week, until the rear hub died. I could always tell when I was going to have a broken spoke or broken nipple just from the noise. But for the money they did exactly what I need
