It means they're on the heavy side, if that matters to you.

Its an oem wheelset for a brand that isnt sold in the US. It may be tough to find someone that has actually ridden these and can compare them to other wheels at that price point or with similar features.
Looks like they are 19mm internal width - https://www.merida-bikes.com/fi-fi/b...reacto-limited


No idea about hub quality.
No idea about spoke type or quality.
No idea if the wheels are usually built well or not.
19mm internal is pretty narrow for a modern road disc wheelset.
1750g is pretty heave for a modern 45mm deep carbon wheelset.

Merida are a well known, respected brand known for good value rather than high-end. They are likely to be of reasonable quality, but I don't think they are worth that much used. What tyres are they being sold with and how used are they?

Merida is the long time OEM manufacturer and current part owner of Specialized.

Correct. That doesn't answer any of the mentioned unknowns, but it is a correct statement.
