Strength:

Nice too ride in hills and mountains with.

Weakness:

It's not a sprinters wheelset if You are a powersprinter.

A lite and relieble wheelset to use in the mountains and hills with a 12-26 cassettte.
Not the stiffest but very "fast" too accelerate.

Similar Products Used: Fulcrum Racing Speed, which are my normal setup on flat courses.

I can attest to durability. A deer (large fawn) took me out on a downhill at 30mph. I heard a rustling in the woods next to the road. The next thing was a blur as the deer was in a full speed charge across the road. I had no time for any abortive actions. I do recall the flash across my brain: "Deer". It hit me right at the front wheel just in front of the fork. I next recall the wheels being swept out from under me in a longitudinal roll- another flash that I can still see in my mind. Well I am on the rode before I can even envision how bad this is going to hurt- but it didn't. I start doing a body reboot as I lie on the ground. My elbow hurts but it can move. My head is fine even though I do remember my helmet hitting the pavement. Hand feet are working too. So I stand up I still feel no major pain but am starting to get the jitters as realize what has just occurred. My elbow is bleeding but I see no other blood. How am I so unscathed? Oh s___, my bike!!! Now I start to focus on my bike. I pick it up and see no flatted tires. Wow. Holy s___ , the wheels are intact and they even spin. Ok ok I look more closely and see that the only damage is the handlebars are aimed a bit off center and there are scrape marks on my bars and saddle but no other damage. The wheels are perfect with no damage whatsover. These wheels are tough. To finish the story my wife and friends bandaged up my elbow and I was easily able to continue the rest of the bike ride. I did end up with a very minor strawberry on my butt and quite a bruise on my lower left back where my formerly operative cell phone was in my left jersey pocket. I think this is where I must have initially landed which saved me from major damage.
