Strength:

Stiff, even at higher speeds or when climbing...
16 spoke front wheel, gives a noticable aero advantage...
No-nonsense wheel, but still good looking...
Spokes are very well attached to the hubs and rim...

Weakness:

That's obviously the weight, especially coming from the rear wheel...
So even when it's a stiff wheel, because of the weight you have some slower accelaration...
--> but hey, it's a trainings wheel !

The overall value for money for this wheel get's 5 stars.
Look at the price and then see what you get back, I'm not a lightweight cyclist because of my lenght, but for the money I get a very stiff wheel back. Corners well and has a nice aero front wheel.
Like mentioned earlier, it's not a lightwheel set, but untill now very bomb proof and does what it needs to do.
The wheelset came with my CAAD10 Cannondale, which has a very stiff frame, so if the wheels were less stiff, I should have noticed it. First thought when I bought the bike was to upgrade the wheels - but no way, I keep them since I don't ride competitions anyway.
Should I recommend them: yes, absolutely. Should I buy them again: sure thing !

Similar Products Used:

Mavic Aksiums, way not as stiff as the RS11. Plus the aero spokes were twisting around, while the Shimano spokes stay where they are.

Strength:

Cheap, Stay true for long miles, stiff rear for number of spokes.

Weakness:

A little bit flex on the font when climbing.

I purchase this to replace caad8's stock wheel maddux RS 3.0, i get quite frustrated for it being true more than a while. I also consider wheel to be cheap but not sacrificing stiffness. I also eyeing over aksium but currently my budget doesnt allow. after I purchase and install it on my bike, i haven't find difference in rolling feel.. might be the tires. though i find a little bit flex on the front when pedaling hard(might be due to low spoke count), but doesn't come untrue though so that is a plus for me. means it could absorb shock. the flex is negligible, the rear is stiff enough. I just cover less than 1000km distance so might not be a complete review. but ill be back after a few rides and see if it stay true. my maddux rs 3.0(stock wheel) become untrue after a harsh ride or two. this currently exceeds the current threshold.
