Anybody have knowledge of Oval Concepts wheels?

Ordering a bike that comes with their 980 carbon clinchers. Worried about the spoke count only being 20 on the rear wheel, and me being a fatass. I think they're essentially the Reynolds 90 aero with dt swiss spokes and dt hubs but can't find any information on them anywhere online. Reynolds doesn't put weight limits on their wheels, but I know someone my size riding the 72 aero's just fine. I know they're heavier, but that's not really a concern. Ideally I'd like to sell the rear for a disc, but their resale value is terrible so the disc is probably going to have to wait. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Fattest BQ on record--- *allegedly
2016 (and last) Rev3 Cedar Point champ- don't google the time though

    225lbs/102kg. My transonic came with a cheap set of oval concept aluminum wheels that I've got a 24h powertap laced to. I know 20 spokes is less than ideal but was hoping the 80mm of carbon would help with the flexing. I've always ridden H3's or disc so trying to be optimistic.
