I'll add my data point.
Wheels arrived perfectly round and true. I checked all spokes using a tensiometer and the tensions were perfectly even - as good a build as I have seen on a new factory wheel. Despite being tubeless compatible, clincher tires were not too difficult to mount. I took them around the block on my wife's tiny bike and I did not find them soft or flexible. I am 80 kg. Wife is happy with them - Conti GP4000S at 80 psi.

I have a pair on order, so I can't comment based on experience. Before ordering, however, I did read all the reviews I could find and there was impressively consistent praise for the wheels' durability. See:

So I have reason to hope that for me, at 71kg rider weight, the wheels will hold up well under general purpose riding.
