Strength:

Stiff, good power transfer, rides like a lighter wheelset.

Weakness:

If they ever need truing, they need a special tool. Hopefully they're bombproof like other DT Swiss products.

Was drawn to these for the DT Swiss reputation of being bombproof. I don't like spending $ on cycling equipment, if it's not durable and I have to baby my equipment. So I got these, concerned about the weight since they're in the price range of used carbon clincher/laminate wheelsets. They ride as light as my Dura Ace 1380, but feel stiffer and have better power transfer. Really well constructed wheels, the wheel builder had a card on the wheels and they just feel and look like quality. There's no, What the hell is this cheap part? moment. Everything is quality, maybe for the exception of the stickers, but who the hell cares about stickers, right! I've been running them with tubes, since I don't like to mess with my equipment being prone to failure, which means no riding. Overall, really happy with this wheelset, I'll know in a year or two if I'm ecstatically happy, but knowing DT Swiss dependability I'm on my way.

Strength:

Tough
Stayed true

Weakness:

A few sticlers pelled up

These weigh only a little more than my full carbon tubulars and were half the price! They now have about 15000k on them and are still perfectly true. My only gripe is that some of the rim stickers have peeled up.
