A new rim brake wheelset?

    I have a Cannondale CAAD12 that is currently stuck on my turbo and it doesn't have a wheelset. It is probably too nice for that use so I'm looking for a wheelset to give me the possibility to take it out on the road if I wanted.

    I haven't bought a rim brake wheelset in a long time and there doesn't seem to be a huge selection.

    My requirements are tubeless (but not Mavic UST), not to weigh a tonne and not to cost a bomb given it is a spare bike. Probably 500€ at an absolute max.

    I would go for Campagnolo Zonda's if they were tubeless compatible but they are not. At the moment I see the DT Swiss P1800 (1616g) for €255 as the best option. I've also looked at Scribe 365 (1574g / 370€), Scribe Race (1454g / 470€), or Hunt Race Aero (1496g / 509€).

    I have the disc version of the DT Swiss so I think they are fine, and I'm not seeing any reason to spend the extra for the others beyond looking a bit cooler.

    Any ideas or anything else I should look at?
