My Personal Opinion About This Theme
Although, theme loads faster. It doesn’t make any sense to the free version of Elementor users.
It only works well with Elementor pro plugin because the header and footer need to be installed on it manually and the option is not available on the free version of Elementor plugin.
Also, there is no vast difference in speed when compared with other popular WordPress Themes like Astra pro, Ocean WP, Genesis e.t.c.
So, according to me, you can use any of the themes you like but how you optimize your theme & which hosting provider you are using plays an important role when there comes a speed of the site.
