Matrix Titan S rims

Picked up a decent set of Matrix Titan S rims off of eBay for a good price. They look strong - double walled and eyeletted. They'll be replacing a cracked Campagnolo Omega Strada Hardox aero rim.

Anyone have an experience with these rims? Any idea of weight?

I have found from the couple of sets I have owned while a tad heavy the Matrix rims are exceptionaly strong and durable and have a great ride quality.

I've owned an aero version of the titans and those developed cracks all over. I suspect these box rims will hold up much better.

Matrix Titan S from my old '88 Trek 1000. Rear rim started cracking at the spokes - probably 20K miles on it at least 10 of that urban commuting with pannier. I felt I got good use out of it.
