Curt was looking for a light weight, reliable set of road wheels that he could take off pavement if he wanted.  The Pacenti SL23 rims are wide, light, and tubeless ready, and have a very smooth brake track.  The Industry Nine hubs are made in Asheville, NC and are light weight with a fast 60 points of engagement freehub mechanism.  CX-Ray spokes with alloy nipples hold everything together, with 24 spokes on the front and 32 on the rear.  Even without skimping on the spoke count the result is a sub-1500g wheelset!
