See if you can upload a better/larger picture. It's really hard to see what's going on there...

^^This, the hole looks way smooth to be from a ding. You said the wheels are new?

Take better pictures, and email them, with the wheel's product number, to CarbonSports for their assessment. Perhaps a CarbonSports representative will show up on this thread, but you should go ahead and send an email.

This "hole" is not really a hole but a cast of some dirt in the spokes mold. This is nothing you have to worry about - it will not weaken your spoke or wheel as the complete bunch of fibres is undamaged.
