I found the rims listed at the link below, but haven't heard back from the company that is selling them.

I'm wondering if they offer different hub and spoke options like FarSports does. I'm not sure I want "CN Spokes" or whatever weird hub DengFu decides to use.

But was your inquiry for just the rims or for the complete wheelset?

I was quoted the same, but it seems unlikely that is can be possible. With hubs and spokes/nipples, I'm guessing it's going to be closer to the $650 mark.

CN(Mac) Aero424 spokes are comparable to CX-Rays in size and weight. According to CN website, Aero424 is 2.0-2.2x0.9-2.0mm and weighs 4.1g(272mm) each. There's even lighter Aero360, claimed 3.6g(260mm).
The hub options are Powerway or Novatec
The spokes are CN Aero
External nipples for 20h front and 24h rear.
Here are the pictures that she sent me ::
Currently awaiting her response on lead times for this wheelset.
The UD 56mm clincher is in stock, ready to ship. 2-3days processing time she said.
