Wheels were shipped in strong containers. Nice bearings. Wide ID, so great for bigger tires. Reasonable weight. Best of all, nice quiet pawls in the freehub body. Only have a hundred miles or so, so can't say much about longevity, but HED has a great reputation.
Great wheels, my first experience with tubeless and the tire inflated with a hand pump easy even before I put in sealant. The ride is wonderful and a big upgrade from the stock wheels.
