    seeking light carbon wheelset with micro-spline compatible hub

    Looking to buy a light set of carbon hoops with 25mm internal width, hubs that work with new Shimano xtr 12 speed (micro spline). Willing to spend some $$ as I want to avoid the really cheap rims. I only weigh 160 so thought of stans podium, but would like a slightly wider internal width as I am interested in 2.35 / 2.4 tires. Enve's are nice and meet this spec but so far they have no microspline. Also, they seem about 500-700 more $ then everybody.

    thanks.

    What do Knight Composites have (using Industry Nine hubs..or DT hubs)?
    What about Industry Nine themselves?

    Reynolds Blacklabel is an option, lifetime warranty and come with I9 hub so you can get a microspline driver: https://reynoldscycling.com/collecti...cklabel-xc-259

    Not sure if you are open to China carbon but BTLOS, Carbonfan, etc. have light options with DT microspline hubs. I've been riding a Carbonfan set for 2 years in AZ rocks with no issues.

    I could be wrong but I believe DT 350/240 are compatible with micro spline. Either way highly recommend We Are One Composites. The insider has 27mm internal but still can come in around the 1400g range with the 240 hub. Lifetime no questions asked warranty, and if you call them up and have a little friendly conversation about what youíre looking for, myself and others were able to get a discount. No promises though.

    DT Swiss now makes a complete carbon wheelset that's exactly what you want.
    https://www.dtswiss.com/en/products/...200-spline-25/
    25mm internal width, carbon, and Shimano 12 speed micro-spline interface.

    It ain't gonna be cheap to say the least.

    I have DT Swiss XMC 1200's

    Enduro strong, XC light (1450g for 25mm 29ers, not sure about the 30mm ones), not cheap.

    Have a pro wheelbuilder lace some 240s hubs to some Nox rims with appropriate spokes and nips.

    Light Bicycle rims in a custom build would get my vote.

    new XTR hubs are pretty appealing weight wise if you like centerlock.

    I agree, a custom build is the way to go.
