Strength:

Very stiff yet comfortable ride.

Ceramic Bearings with six pawl hubs and 3 degree engagement.

Weakness:

None found.

I was given a set of these to demo (58s) and put about 200 miles on them over the course of three days. They were set up with Conti GP 4000 (23mm) with tubes. I was very surprised at how smooth and comfortable the ride was for a wheel that was so stiff. The stiffness really shows in the corners as they lock in on pretty much any line you want to take. I'm more of a climber so I usually run really light low profile wheels. I could tell that these were slightly heavier than what I am used to but it didn't affect my climb times. I did put the aero properties to the test on a 3.7 mile false flat uphill segment that I have ridden hundreds of times and knocked 22 seconds off my PR.

Overall, I was very impressed with the workmanship and quality of the wheels. I'm looking forward to trying out the 38s.
