Anyone riding the SRAM S30 Sprints?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I'm looking at these wheels, look pretty good for the money. I've run the S60's and was pretty happy with them but they were a different animal. So if anyone's running the S30's I'd like to hear some feedback if possible. They have a claimed weight of 1495g, is this pretty accurate?

I've ridden them, With rim strips, they weighted in at 1540 so Id say that their weight is pretty accurate as advertised. They seemed very durable, but I only rode one hilly century with them. They accelerated well and climbed even better. I was impressed, Ill be adding them to the paddock this summer

I have the S27s. Quality is nice, havent had the need to have them trued. Ride is very smooth and no signs of flexing at turns over 30mph or sprinting hard. Has settings on the hub for preload, should help the bearing last longer and roll smoother. Rear hub is whisper quiet, sort a like a Samurai Ninja! lol!

I have a buddy who has had them for a couple of months now. Probably too short of a period to say anything about their durability but he likes them so far. The toroidal shape and hidden nipples are pretty. But the nips could be a hassle if you need to tru the wheel, so keep that in mind.

The thing is, most places remove the tire anyways to true the wheel so, not sure its a huge issue with hidden nipples...
