2009 Easton EA90 SLX. Best wheels I have ever ridden.
Compare to Mavic, handbuilt ect.
Pretty light at 1385 grams. Ceramic bearings. Roll for days. Semi areo. Strong, silent rear hub on 2009 model. 20/24 spokes.
Only thing to change are get some KCNC Ti Skewers and you have youself an amazing set of wheels.

Ditto on the SLX. However since my wallet cannot handle the SLX, I'm picking up the SL's instead. Only difference is a slightly higher spoke count and no ceramic bearings.

HED Aredennes. Light, strong, and very close to a tubular ride. Great customer support and they can make a stronger build if you need it.

I will have to look into the Eastons, but my vote is for the new 2009 Mavic Cosmic Carbone SLR. Essentially the 2005 Carbone with about 150 grams shaved off and carbon spokes.

Buttery smooth Mavic hubs, durable enough for anything, and user replaceable carbon spokes (but from what I have heard, no worries there even).
