Looking at these wheels for my gravel bike. Also considering building a set using the I9 torch hubs using a Hed Belgium rim. Anyone have experience with these wheelset or just the hubs?

I can't speak to that wheelset but I do know about those hubs - they are bad ass!  Brett aka "Oleritter" here built my wheelset on the I9 torch centerlock hubs and they have been nothing short of impressive.  You can read my full thoughts on the wheelset here

I will say that the 235CX wheelset does come at a very attractive price.

$1225usd for an aluminum hoop is attractive? These have to be the most expensive aluminum wheelset around. Possibly the best as well but still... that price...

Red hub/red spokes on my P-Jake would be drool worthy though. And that weight.... goodness.

I don't see where they spec the rim as aluminum.  But that would explain the price being less than $2k.  I wonder how they got that light a build on an alloy rim?  What'd they leave out 😉

You can definitely build a lightweight aluminum wheelset, lighter than many carbon wheelsets. I have a set built on an Pancent rim, carbon ti hubs and pillar megalite spokes. Weighs in at 1295. Being I only weigh 110 I can go with a low spoke count. 😀
