Not sure why they included the DT Swiss and Roval options in the comparison. They're shallower by a big enough margin that it isn't apples to apples.

Are you by chance the same guy that designs and sells bicycle tools?

Yes! Although I'm probably better known for bottom brackets

Ha that's amazing! What a small world. I'm the guy that tried to obtain your BB30 tool in the US. Still struggling to find a solution as elegant as yours!

The Heds jumping up to 2nd place is a surprise. Two questions, both related to the fact that the Jet series is a shallow aluminum rim with a thin carbon non-structural fairing on top: Are those wheels stiff compared with other deep all-carbon rims that have shorter spoke lengths? How are those wheels tubeless when the fairing would presumably prevent you from tightening down the valve to seal the hole in the rim?

Also, they are super lenient about the Mavics getting 4 out of 5 and the last place Progress wheels getting 2 points when the descriptions make them sound very sketchy to ride. Too lenient on the points they award.

In all these tests the results only depend to the test's parameters, protocols and pressupositions. (of course in the case of tests done by companies the main pressuposition is that "my product has to come at the top".)
So, however hard you try to find the absolute or 'scientific' truth you will never find it. In practice it does not matter either.
