I like these rims a lot. I think a Mavic rim is manufactured to a higher tolerance. But these come out of the box truer than comparable rims from Sun or Alex. Usually the only place there is any inherit wonkiness is at the seam.
I love the quality of these rims. These are truer unbuilt than the Alex Adventurer, Sun CR-18, and Sun RhynoLite. Because they start truer, they are more durable than the RhynoLite, at a lower weight. The only beefier rim which I've tried is the Mavic A719. But the Dyad is normally about 2/3rds of the price and commonly available in more drillings.
Plus they are compatible with Velocity's Veloplugs.
I warped a sidewall of my rear rim jumping a curb, so I wouldn't call these "bomb proof" (and I am using 1.2 inch tires). But I was able to fix the sidewall and re-true the rim. When I built my wheels these rims were easy to true laterlally, but not horizontally (so they aren't perfect circles). It does not seem to effect the ride though, but for American made rims I was expecting better tolerances out of the box.
