As you can see I ended up ordering the "hooked" version because of the many low pressure / blow-off warnings from LB during the order process. I should have them in a few weeks and will give a bit of a review when I get them.
No, this one.
Why do you not like 46mm, it's only 20grams more?
Even with off road usage, it would have increased stiffness to be worth the weight?
I am waiting for good 16/21 hubs - Yuniper have no bearing adjustment and need spacers. DT Swiss offers these on some wheels but they have T-head spokes and those are not availiable in all lengths. Maybe Carbon TI will offer some one day.
Here's a lousy photo of my Felt F3X with the new wheels. (The red tape on the rims was to locate the valve hole when I was truing them.)

I ran Conti 28C GP4000 II which measure 32mm wide at first, and I am now on Compass 28C which measure 30mm wide. I'm running them at 50-60psi with tubes. 4000km of use and no issues with tyres blowing off.
I am delighted with the ride quality. Did a Fondo on my other bike with 25C tyres and was surprised how noticeably harsh the ride was. I've since put 28's on that bike too. I'm sold on wide rims and tyres.

I was thinking of a 30x23mm rear and a 24x20mm front. They list the front rim at 260 and the rear at 300.

I want to buy a better wheelset than actual DT swiss R24 DB for my endurace CF SL and hesitate between Fulcrum quattro carbon DB and chinese rims + DT 350 straightpull + DT aerolite spokes.
It work fine for oversized 23c like continental. Probably too risky on narrow 23c like Veloflex.
23c conti 4000sII -> 27.3mm
26c Specialized S-works Turbo -> 28.1mm
25c conti 4000sII -> 28.7mm (after worn down a while, it was around 28.3mm when new)
EDIT: Specialized tire name is S-works Turbo, not Power.
