Looking for a lightweight carbon gravel disc wheelset. The following are a must:

1) 700c
2) tubeless compatible rims
3) 12 X 100 front; 12 X 142 rear
4) centerlock or 6-bolt discs
5) less than $1000

If you have anything around 1400 g, it would be perfect. A wide rim (22 mm or higher internal) would also be great as well.

Thanks!

Hey there,

I’ve got a set of Enve AM wheels that might fit the bill. They are DT 240 hubs laced with CX-ray spokes. The hubs are six bolt/iso.
I’m sure you can find specs for them easy enough. Might fit what you are looking for.

Anyone?
I am lugging 1700 g + on my current gravel wheels and my puny thighs are hurting. Someone please sell me wheels to end my suffering. :banana:

Here's a tool to figure it out if mjb266 doesn't know. http://www.wheelbuilder.com/wheel-weight-calculator.html

you have all the specs you need (except spoke count) to enter in to get the final weight

One other thing...You may already know this, but unless you go shallow, carbon disc wheels aren't necessarily lighter than nice aluminum disc wheels (applies to non disc wheels as well). A lot of carbon wheels people look at are clincher / semi deep. To get into that 1400 gram range you need a light/shallow rim like an Enve M50 (370 grams), light spoke like DT aerolite or Sapim CX-rays, and nice hubs. M50s/DT aerolite, DT 240 hubs/28 spoke is about 1400 grams. There are plenty of good aluminum disc rims in that 370 g range. That same configuration with a Stan's Crest MK3 is going to be lighter @ around 1380 grams. Go with WI hubs and get even lighter. On the other hand there are plenty of pricey name brand Enve/Reynolds/etc carbon disc wheels that still weigh close to 1700 gr...either because they are deeper section rims, or they use a more standard spoke like a Sapim Race (arguably stiffer and better suited to off road or heavier riders); the M50 is obviously going to stiffer than the Crest rim (but not lighter_

Long story short...in my opinion go for CF if you just want the CF bling factor (nothing wrong with that!) or for other reasons...stiffness, etc...not because they are going to be lighter. In many cases they aren't.

...if this is all restating the obvious, please disregard, and good luck with your search. I just picked up a set of Enve XC90's. Very light, and since they are not current gen you can find great deals.

Thanks for all the responses. I should have mentioned my budget. And I have modified my WTB accordingly.
