Disk Specific carbon rims

I'm looking to build up some carbon disk wheels. Ideally 38-50mm depth, wide u shaped.

I've had decent use out of some hong fu rims on novatech hubs (tubs) so was looking to go that route again. They don't make disk specific rims yet. Ideally I want disk specific with a view to maximising the benefits - stronger lighter rim, no worries regards heat build up etc.

Does anyone know of any Chinese or Taiwanese (or other well priced unbranded) carbon disk specific 700c rims?

    Both those companies don't make a road disc brake specific rim. What they will do is a road rim brake rim without the resin treatment on the brake track. I.e you will have a brake track but not a usable one. Dbop are the only ones doing a proper disc brake rim but it is pricey . They have had to pay for a mold though and not cheap.
