Is the Enve G23 still the best overall lightweight gravel wheelset even though it's 5 years old? I'm looking for something to cover lots of climbing (1k ft per 10 miles), rough category 3 gravel, and 70% road riding to get to and from my local gravel. I use 38-42mm tires.

The Light Bicycle AR25 with DT Swiss or Chris King hubs looks like a good match as well.

I'm running the Farsports 30/30 with DT 240's. 1275g for the set and about $1000.00 usd

there is simply no "best" wheelset out there. The Enve G23 covers quite the rough gravel part of the spectrum. For that, it is a top wheelset still now. I do more of a mix of gravel and road, so I went for the Zipp 303 Firecest and love those. With Enve, that would be the equivalent to the 3.4 rims. Also, Roval's Terra CLX is very, very good. before, I had Farsport rims laced to DT 350s. Superlight, and rather easy on the wallet....

I ordered a custom wheelset from ruedas custom. The rim was a slightly different rim than what they offer now. The weight was around 1050 grams. Wheelset has been bombproof since then. (I weigh 65 kg)
