Carbon wheels that weigh about 1200g a set for 800 dollar?
Are all the other carbon wheels so much overpriced?

Yes. I'm afraid it's one of the cheaper Carbone Wheel Sets. A very good one is the Corima Aero wheel set. It costs 753 Euro. I haven't seen any cheaper one yet! And the reviews are very positive. You can order it directly at: www.corima.com

Unfortunately, many are. For a more economically-friendly wheelset and IMHO a better overall value, I would go w/HED3s over Nimble Crosswinds.

My $0.02 anyway...

No. The velomax rims used are the same ones produced by reynolds. Check out the Cirro SV wheelset at www.reynoldscomposites.com same rim, but with White Industies hubs. Hope this helps.
