Good, but flexy in the front QR version

I picked up a set of these, and then replaced the front when I bought a new fork. My original pair were both QRs, and the new one is a 15 thru-axle. Riding QR wheels is nothing new for me, and the front wheel of this set is decidedly flexy in the QR model. The 15mm thru-axle helped immensely. The 15mm is nearly as stiff as my old wheels with XT hubs and straight gauge spokes. They're pretty easy to set up tubeless, and reasonably light, and I haven't had to true them yet.
