MTB: 29er carbon boost wheelset

Looking to purchase my first set of carbon wheels. For a new frame: Pivot LES. This will be an XC set up. No suspension fork, either--I'll be getting a Niner carbon fork.

Looking for something <$1k.
Prefer DT hubs (350 or 240), center lock. Don't care much about width, as long as it's >23mm ID.
I weigh 165lbs. Most of the trails are fairly smooth, but the rigid fork does cause some harsher hits on the front wheel.

Please recommend some wheels. Thanks.

Very easy to build a set of Light Bicycle rims on DT350 hubs for well under your $1k budget. Great value.
