Strength:

Strong and wide. The rim is welded and then powder-coated. Pretty sharp looking rim. Available as a rim only where other comparably wide aluminium rims are only available as a wheel-set. Pretty light for an All Mountain/ DH specific rim.

Weakness:

None so far. If you are buying this rim, you expect it to take a beating so you shouldn't expect it to be a featherweight.

Good wheel builders make all the difference. This rim is pretty burly. I have put 60-70 miles on it- cased a double- ride straight into boulders at speed. Wheels are true and fine. I am running Schwalbe Vert Star compound tires so they make the wheels feel a little heavy on the first ride, but you get used to it after the first mile or two.
