Origin 8 Track Attack Wheel

Hey I'm putting together a build and cant seem to find any info on Origin 8 Track Attack wheels. I've found a few posts about other Origin 8 stuff (like the hubs on this wheel), but nothing about the Track Attack rim. Any ideas on quality, strength, weight, etc?

The rims are just Velocity B43s. If you search for them you can find a lot of info.

They're heavier but supposedly stronger than the Deep-V. Personally, for the 42mm deep rims I'm a fan of H Plus Son, but Velocity is a good brand too. H Plus Son are lighter and already really strong for urban riding, I don't really see the need for the extra support material that Velocity throws in there (google image search to see the extrusion differences).

For the price it seems like a fair deal imo, that wheelset.
