Recommendations on CX Disc Wheelset option

I'm on the lookout for a new wheelset for my cyclocross bike in the hope that i'll be able to get some racing in over the winter. (If not it'll be good for alternate focus off-road during the winter) The stock wheelset has done a job but is heavy and needs to go.
  • 15mm thru axle front and qr rear- Disc
  • Budget about 300 quid
  • Tubeless Compatible.
  • Shimano freehub
  • Light to moderately light- needs to stand up to the demands of offroad riding and racing
I don't want Hunt- local riders have seen a number of issues with them and issues with their customer service
I believe Hope doesn't do their road wheelsets in a 15mm thru-axle
My last 2 sets of Superstar wheels the hub flanges have broken away (never seen on any other wheels) so they're out the question

Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm tempted to try a set from Cero though open to ideas

    Handbuilts? You may be able to get something built by DCR Wheels for roughly your budget and they'll be able to accommodate for the 15mm front and QR rear. David who runs DCR wheels is happy to chat about potential builds to you via email:

    I've had some wheels from them and have been very happy with them, otherwise Scribe seem a decent alternative to Hunt.

    Might be worth having a chat with Malcolm at https://thecycleclinic.co.uk/

    I'd speak to Malcolm at cycleclinic. Will be getting him to make me a set of something for my TCX once i get budgetary approval from the financial controller of the house.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
