Velomax Ascent Pros (Lew rims)

Zipp 303 tubulars

ADA's (but very expensive)

All under that weight are tubulars, as far as I know.

You might want to checkout http://www.amclassic.com/. They have a tubular carbon wheelset that weighs in at 1000g (2.2lbs). They want $890 for the set. Think they only come in a Shimano compatible hub though.

They might be able to build a wheelset with a campy compatible hub. Give them a buzz or drop 'em an e-mail.

Those rims look exactly like the Zipp 303 rims; do they have a common manufacturer? The specs are the same, too (38mm depth)

What do you think?

Zipp is essentially a manufacturer of carbon rims and discs. Zipp sells complete wheelsets using their 280 rims and re-branded Edco hubs as the 303. American Classic sells their wheelsets using rebranded Zipp 280 rims and their own hubs. Spinergy also uses Edco hubs in some of their wheelsets.
