Strength:

light, fast, stiff, comfortable

Weakness:

price, if you pay anywhere close to full retail

My first Mavic product, recommended to me by the guys at CC. I was skeptical, but the price, and their strong rec and free shipping gave me the nudge. The wheels have really outperformed my expectations. I was prepared to hate the way they felt (we've all read 'harsh' Ksyrium reviews) but they are quite smooth and comfortable. The wheels are light and stiff and really seem to respond well, especially on climbs. I felt an immediate difference as compared to my other set of wheels, a hand built set of DT Swiss. As far as cosmetics - as silly as it sounds, I thought these wheels looked hideous with the extra milling, and that in and of itself probably was keeping me back from ordering - BUT, one I got them, and on the bike, it doesn't bother me one bit - in fact - it looks pretty cool. I don't think these are available any longer, but if you come across a set, for the right price, don't hesitate - jump on them!
