    Assuming you really want tubular, you can't get much lighter than these from Ax Lightness:
    ax-lightness: Premium MTB 29er

    You should expect to pay... lots.

    For about $100 less you could buy ENVE 29" tubular wheels with DT 180 hubs and only have it weigh 28gms more.

    or for roughly $2950 you could buy 1255gm DT Swis XRC 950 T 29 front/rear.

    Is it possible to keep it under $2,000 and around 1,300gms a set?
