I had a set (clinchers) built up back in May and received them at the beginning of July. This is what I ordered:
Item No.: FSC50-CM
Rim: full carbon 50mm clincher 20/24H (FSL50-CM) with Basalt brake track
Hubs: Novatec track hub (Novatec 565-566SBT),black
Spoke: Sapim cx-ray (black)
Nipple: Sapim (SILS) in RED
App: 3k matt finish
Weight: 1640g(+/-30g) each set
FOB Price: US $563 each set + $60 shipping
I don't use them for track - only road/commuting. I have done 100km on them and they feel light (around 1650 I think - no rim tape, tube or tyres) and quick compared to my stock wheels which are very heavy 50mm alloy wheels (1.4kg lighter!).
The Novatec track hub is the only option available. They are fixed on one side and free on the other. I asked for 2x lacing on the rear as the standard build will be 2x on DS and no cross on NDS which will be better if wanting to flip the wheel. Another option if you want a even stronger wheel is go for the N series rims - I believe they are slightly heavier but stronger.
