    Strength:

    Light enough (same weight as my Easton Orion II wheelset), super fast for climbing and on flat roads, great handling, attractive, really good price.

    Weakness:

    Curiously these seem slower on descents than my Eastons.

    Super wheels! Tubular version. Standing climbs feel like I've got rockets attached to my chainstays. Very responsive handling (Conti 4000SR tires). Stiff ride but not jittery. Cool looking with my titanium frame - hey, even down deep I'm shallow.

    Small problem with ticking noise that was easily resolved with a drop of oil at spoke elbows/hub flanges.

    Requires spacer behind Shimano cassettes.

    Strength:

    Price, solid, smooth, price, quiet understated quality, price (again)!!

    Weakness:

    Really no weaknesses but also no overwhelming strengths. Just a good over-all great value wheelset.

    These are very good wheels sold at an amazing price. I purchased mine during a sale at Neuvation for $600!! My $600 got me a 50 mm full carbon tubular wheelset. The best terms to describe these wheels would be solid, smooth, and quiet. They weighed in at 1450 grams. These wheels hold their speed very well and just impart a solid feeling. Very quiet and smooth running. They are competent but understated. Nothing climbs, spins, or feels as good as these at this price simply because in this price range there is nothing else! If you are willing to go to the $800 to $1,000 range the Token t50 tubular wheelset is slightly lighter and comes with ceramic bearings (see my review on these). You want to get into deep dish carbon tubular wheels as cheaply as possible while still getting quality? Then you can't go wrong with these!

    Strength:

    -Stiff rim
    -Solid, fast hubs
    -Equal in price to high end aluminum wheels, but lighter and stiffer
    -Best customer service around

    Weakness:

    -None so far

    The wheelset is very stiff and light. They spin up very fast up hills, react quickly during the sprint and rail the corners of a crit. The hubs are solid and have the option for a ceramic bearing upgrade. The bearing upgrade kit is equal to that used by most if not all of the wheel manufacturers you can think of, but for much less. Instructions and a cup press come with the upgrade kit. I've never changed bearings in a wheel before and it was easy. Definitely get the snap ring tool and punch kit for this operation. The wheels come with their own cork pads and spokes so no extra purchases needed. John from Neuvation had these wheels out to me inside of a week when I ordered them. I've been running them now for three months in crits and road races. There is little effort needed to get these things rolling. Continental tubulars on front and rear using 22mm wide.
