Actually my question is in the title. Which manufacturer can assemble a lightweight wheelset on c23 rims, carbon aero spokes and Extralite hubs? Extralite have released a new version of the hubs "SPD3+", which was developed specifically for metal-carbon spokes.
I asked Farsport, they said that these hubs can only build wheels with round spokes. Aero spokes can be built with new DT Swiss hubs, but they weigh almost twice as much.
I also wrote to Lightbicycle, they said that temporarily I couldn’t build it on carbon spokes.
I like the new Campagnolo Ultra series, but they are still heavy, I would like to get a pair under 1200g.
CRW 4045 I don't like the logo design and they have a c21 inner rim, I'm using a 28mm inner tube tire and a 23mm inner rim width would be better

carbon spokes generally require a compatiable hub.. so the extralite might not be an option.

I received an email from Extralite yesterday. The new SPD3+ version compatible with carbon spokes.

Idk if these are different but the spd3+ hubs on their website don't appear carbon spoke compatible at all

Idk what kind of carbon spokes they have in mind but you're not getting a 4mm wide carbon spoke through a 2.8 mm hole

You noticed this correctly. I didn't pay attention to this. Then what other c23 wheels can I find on the market with aero spokes and low weight? I think the budget is around 2000$€

The Newmen Vonoa should fit the bill. You can also buy Ascent rims and build them up with carbon spokes.

I dont understand why you dont go simply for a shallow farsports rim with their rd270 hub and carbon spokes. Can be build unter 1100 gramms. Should be light "enough" :D

I was looking at the Magene Exar this morning. They are pretty close to your specs and inexpensive.

30mm wide, 23mm inner, carbon spokes, 1300g
