I'm looking for some super lightweight climbing wheels that are stiff, and durable. I had the Campy Bora Ultra 35 tubs in mind but would like to hear lighter alternatives that are practical, not just lightweight status symbols. Wheels I'm looking at are AX Lightness, Tune, and Schmolke. I'm 155lbs. Thanks!

Define super lightweight?? Budget?

Lightweights and Campy Hyperons come to mind.
There is also an endless combo of Enve wheels that will qualify depending on budget.

The Lightweights are definitely out of my budget. I'm looking at wheels up to $2500. Currently ride Campy Bora Ultra 50 and Zipp 404 NSW's, both clinchers.

define ultra light weight and durable. these things mean different things to different people.

300g 38mm deep tubular rims (20mm wide) and carbon ti hubs is pretty durable for me and lightweight too at 1020g but for some this is not light enough and other may not find them durable because they are hard on wheels.

you will be using catbon ti hubs or extralite and a deepish/deep tubular rim to keep the wheels stiff if you want them to be durable weight will be around 1000g unless you with shallower and lighter rims but you then sacrifise stiffness and potentially durability depending on you.

They need to be practical. The type of wheels I would use multiple times a week on less than ideal surface. Would prefer 1100 gram stiff wheels over 800 gram noodles.

I have Enve 2.2 tubs on Extralite and another pair on DT240s... the extralite are sub 1kg, I think the 240s are slightly above... 240s might be for sale soon

Just stick with your original plan... Campy Bora Ultra 35 tubulars. Drop the mic, walk away.

Schmolke 30's laced to Wheels Mfg hubs should be within your defined budget and around 1050g. I demoed Denavelo's and they felt just like the Boras in all respects. His were laced to Tune 45/150 so I think the Wheels Hubs should get you even more lateral stiffness and be perfectly suited for a daily driver.

My next wheel build will be that.
