More for curiosity as these don't open my wallet, but do you know what spoke tension the wheels are running? In my experience, low spoke count wheels always need to run higher tension as there are fewer spokes sharing the load and importantly fewer crossing spokes (2x as opposed to 3x). This translates to a harsher ride, since the spokes aren't able to stretch/behave like a spring as well as they do at lower tensions. I've built a few carbon wheels for customers, and the rim stiffness is evident right from when you lace them up. Basically, I'm wondering what would happen to the ride quality if the tension was dropped a couple kg's.
