What's your budget? Would you be adverse to simply rebuilding them with tubular rims?

The ENVE TWENTY9 XC tubulars look pretty sweet, but I haven't ridden them, they're about $2000 over my budget.

That's my eventual plan. Get rid of my CX bikes and get a set of these for my Stumpjumper. Then next season hydraulics will have hopefully matured enough and use the same set. Probably not tubular though :cry:

As mentioned, you could do the Enve 29 CX rims. Those laced to some King or White Industries hubs could be pretty sweet.

I have a set of planet X 50mm CX wheels with 32mm Racing Ralph tubes.
Very happy with them. Not the lightest, but a lot better then my original clincher wheels.

That seems quite heavy to me. I'll have to weigh my cross wheels tomorrow to compare. Very similar 50mm carbon tubs with Vittorias on.

The wheels are not the lightest. But at 500GBP with tyres probably the lightest (or close to) for the money.

You should consider a carbon chinese wheel set. There are models as light as Zipp, Enve, AX-Lightness etc and 80% cheaper
I bought the first set this year and I'm amazed how good they are

Before buying my planet-X wheels, I did some research on chinese wheels.
1) very very hard to find chinese rims with disc hub
2) if you find them, the manufacturer doesn't advise cyclocross or light cross-country

But that was alomost a year ago, maybe things are different now.
All I can say is that I really enjoy my Planet-X wheels and they are very very comfy (I think part if it because of the tubulars)

Although I am using carbon disc tubulars from Farsports, a recent post in a thread discussing Chinese wheels on another site revealed that the trading company Yoeleo (doubt they are a manufacturer), now offers 23mm wide, 38mm deep carbon tubular rims as well as a wheelset based on the same rim with 6 Bolt Disc Brake hubs.

Yoeleo was the one I also found and it clearly stated that the wheels where not designed for cx or mtb and only to be used with road tires. Those wheels where clinchers by the way

Boys sells some of their wheelsets with a Disc Hub, mostly the carbon tubulars and the alloy clinchers.

I love my set of Boys, would buy from them again!
