Well, rim is over 1000 euros, almost twice the price of Schmolke TLO.
I have no experience with such light wheelset, i have read comments from people who were blown away with performance of Schmolke TLO30 wheels and even praised their stiffness..which is hard to believe for me..
Bora 35 is almost 1200g with similar height and width, so 950g seems as a huge difference. Also interested in its special braking treatment..but nobody knows the brand and there is just one retailer, who sells them, so it looks like to good to be true..they may be fragile, hard to say..

they added some hard material during it new idea or somebody tried before?
been done many times before. Adding strands/fibres to the cf or dosing the resin. Or adding material into the lay up.

Sometimes it doesn't work very well.

Also they need to define what the
You mean by weight limit. To me it means a rider upper weight where spoke failures are not expected during the life of the wheel. Are they saying a 120kg rider can ride these without spoke failures until the rim wears out. I doubt it so in this case what does the weight limit mean.
