When my front LW Std Clincher is out (for +15mph windy days) I swap in a DuraAce C24. But its a pain swapping the brakes around every time I swap wheel. I do it cause I must, but a 20-24mm carbon clincher would be better.
I'm hoping CarbonSports eventually (soon!) make a Ventoux (or whatever their new name is) Clincher...

For heavier riders deeper rims 50-60-88 mm are good all round options. for light weight, usually will look at a shallower rim in the 20mm-38 mm range. 38mm-50mm are suitable for mid weight.
so in my opinion, maybe you can choose depth more than 38mm.

More like 1440g with the factory rim tape. Nice clinchers though.
Stiff, Light, Aero - Pick Three!!
I should say they were on a CX style frame with discs, 32 spoke 3x.
Weight was reasonable (370 or so) and they were quite a bit stiffer than some light-ish alloy rims I have built.
They were quite good actually.
Would I use them with rim brakes,......no.
