And what about internal/external nipples? What do you think is better?

Or holes/no holes for nipples on the rim bed? I think with holes is easier to do maintenance.

Anyone have experience with kapton tape for road wheels, I use this kind of lightweight tape on my MTB rims, but the pressure is 2 bar max not 7bar like in road rims.

Interesting rims with good weight.
First option hookless is ok for road or for CX.

I'm searching for light rims.
Where can I find sets with these rims??

A good light option could be:

35mm deep * 26mm wide rim, 400g / pc +/-15g, Tubeless.

What do you recommend me?
Rims can be found on Farsports web shop "wheelsfar", in rim section.

1:1 height:width rims are deeper (a little bit more aero) and have extra room to get nipples inside for setup "without holes"

actual weight for asymmetric 28x28 tapeless 24H with glossy finish: 325g

What does "offset" mean?

Think he’s referring to asymmetric rims.

In that case...

It means when the rear rim is biased more to the non-drive side in order to get a better bracing angle for the spokes going to the drive side. So if you look at the rim from behind the bike, the bit of the rim where the spokes go in is offset a little to the left.

Are “regular” wheels (from brands like DT Swiss, campy, Mavic, Enve, etc...);usually with an offset?
Are offset better?

Nox Composite rims are asymmetric. And they have scientific details on their site as to why they believe they are better. But as noted above, they are mtb.
