Strength:

light weight
Easy to get on and off

Weakness:

Boa system is not very good at dialing in fit.
cheap construction (lots of mesh)

When I first got these shoes I loved the fit, but after racing in them for a bit, I found that the fabric stretched a lot. Also, the BOA system is terrible!!! You can only adjust the tightness of the entire shoe, it doesnt allow you to dial in a good fit. Its easy to get on and off, which might make it good for a tri shoe, but I wouldnt really recommend it for any racer. The I-beam sole is adequately stiff for my racing (I am a firm believer that carbon isnt always the answer), minimal flex. The area around the toe began to come apart on mine too, after a year it looked like I had them for at least 5, they just didnt wear all that well.
