Im looking to replace the tubeless 26" Bontrager Race Lite wheelset on my 2010 Top Fuel 9.8...

Weight: 100 lbs, running tubeless, and riding fairly technical singletrack steep climbs and descents. Lots of rough climbing where acceleration is important to keep momentum over rocks and roots during the climb..

In the road cycling world, there is the 700c Kinlin XR200 that weighs just 1260g and can be had on ebay for just under 300 USD.

What is the equivelent of this in the MTB world? Something light and cheap. Strong doesnt matter for my size...

Notubes ZTR Crest, Sapim spokes and Progress Turbine Ultra hubs would finish around 1380 grams.
I got a quote here in EU of 450€ the pair.
