Rated 5 out of 5 by Aspheo Just splendid.
First of all - I still haven't tried them. So, just "first impression" after unpackaging.
I bought 20 / 135qr, Black\Iron version.
Besides the wheelset, CB provides one split QR skewer, two tubless valves, a sticker, and a manual (99999999+ languages included, weights a lot, really!)
1) They are light. Really. The packaging was heavier than whole wheelset with skewer and tubless nipples.
2) They look gorgeous. Well, I believe everyone admits that at least.
3) When I ordered them, I thought they will be some sort of "black and silver" or so... It was my mistake. They are.... Well, "Iron". Kind of Hope's Gunsmoke color, but darker. Some photos will say better, trully. And looks like this color can change a little bit depending on the lights; It's some kind of chameleon color, I believe.
4) They are greased. Literally. Touch hub inaccurate - then go clean your hands. Well, grease is good, but in moderate amount.
I still need to test them in action, though. Only time shows, how durable Iodines are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rob11 Fantastic Wheel set from Crank Brothers
I purchased these initially for the innovative design & colour contrast, although they do seem to be speculative from across the board claiming all sort of problems with the Hubs & such forth. I would say that they are a sturdy tough wheel that can take some abuse off road & over rocky ground.

Rated 5 out of 5 by xukxmrt These wheels are beautiful and run like a dream
These are some of the best looking wheels I have seen, they draw a lot of attention from both fellow bikers and passers by, super light and smooth as butter.
I own a pair of the 20mm front and 135 QR rear in black and orange, I had always wanted a pair of crank brothers wheels and now I have I don't regret it at all
