I found the Flo 30's work perfect if you want to run an alum crit wheel like I do. They are kinda like the newer Hunt Aero Wide and claim to provide some aero benefit. The best part though is the 19.5 internal 26 internal width with a 25mm tire it gives great grip for the corners and without a shallow box section like the Boyd or Hed alum.

I liked my Flo 30's. Solid wheels, good hubs. You can set them up tubeless, but it can be a bit of a pain the ass because of the rim profile.

If you can swing it, tubies are awesome for crits to prevent pinch flats. Just do a good job gluing them or you'll be pretty upset at yourself. I've raced everything from 60mm deep down. Honestly, my favorites to race on were a tossup between those 60mm deep chinese wheels I had (as long as it wasn't wet) and my flo 30's because they just spun up so well.

There's some guy named psimet. I have a suspicion this would be light, stiff, and spin up quickly. Plus those white industry hubs are pretty snazzy.
