Just picked up a BMC Alpenchallenge to commute with. it's HEAVY. (9.4kg)

Can someone recommend a good, light set of clinchers that can accommodate larger (i.e. cross size) tires and disc brake rotors?

I have two sets of wheels for my commuter/cx bike: for normal commuting I have a set of H+ Son Archetype (23mm-wide) rims and for cx I have a set of Stans Crest wheels running tubeless with Kenda Kommando SCT tires.

Both wheels will accept wide tires, but if you want to run high-pressure road the Crest may not be appropriate (I am not sure if max pressure they list is only for tubeless). I really like how wide the Crest are for 32mm cross tires.

I built both sets laced 28/32 3x with DT SuperComp spokes to BHS hubs. (I weigh ~175 lbs for reference.) Using the same hubs means adjustment-free swapping. (I swap the wheels frequently since I ride an off-road commute route when the trails are dry.)
