There are wide 23mm clincher rims that weigh less than 400gms such as the Velocity A23, Stans A340, HED C2, etc, and these rims/wheelsets have been around for a while ...
Unfortunately, the Velocity A23 is 450g & the HED C2 is between 460g & 475g (depending on which site you look at). The Alpha 340 is 385g but if your on the heavy side, I'd suggest going for the Alpha 400 which is 425g.
