These wheels are floating around on ebay for cheap. They were made for Scott by DT Swiss. Everything in them is DT Swiss (hubs, rims, spokes, centerlock ring, thru axle, tubeless valve stems)

I paid $175 for them shipped. What really surprised me was the weight for the price. Also caution these are MTB wheels so if you are running 11sp you will need an MTB cassette or the 11-34 HG800 Ultegra cassette. Any other road cassette will not work.

Hubs are DT370 with 3 pawls 24T engagement so sadly not the new ratchet system.

The endcaps on the rear wheel pop off easily so you can run QR. You just need the endcaps that are compatible with the DT350 hubs.

They are not the widest at 20mm ID but if you looking for a cheap lightweight set of wheels to try out 650b they are definitely a great deal.

What I got in the box:
Wheelset with tubeless tape already installed
TA for the rear
tubeless valve stems
6-bolt adapters
CL lock rings

Cool!  A few questions:
1. Can you get caps for 12mm front axle?
2. Is MTB cassette spacing in 11sp different than road?  I didn't realize that was the case.  I have a 11sp SRAM 1x.  Could you put on an XD driver instead?
3. How big a 650b tire would you put on a 20mm internal rim?  Would a 48 or 50 mm be okay?

Thanks.

1. I am not sure. I haven't tried to pop off the front endcaps. If they can't come off though you can still run them with a 12mm fork with something like this:

2. 11sp MTB cassettes work on 10sp hubs. 11sp road cassettes cannot work on 10sp hubs. Since you have SRAM 1x if you have a cassette bigger than 11-40 then you have an MTB cassette so it will work no problem. If you need XD driver just buy these wheels instead:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/DT-Swiss-Syncros-XR2-5-27-5-Mountain-Bike-TLR-Wheelset-15x100mm-12x142mm-/192183561004?hash=item2cbf086b2c

Same exact wheel but with XD driver and cheaper.

3. I am putting 650x2.1 Thunder Burts on them. I would say you can run up to a 2.2" tire no problem.

NO!  Its a good idea, and I thought the same, tried it, and it did NOT work.  Ugh!!!

YMMV, but my fork required a 12mm end cap.  I bought that adaptor (it is kinda cool), and it worked great on my axle (I did put a dab of silicon on it so it would not fall out and roll somewhere unobtainable when I changed wheels), but the end cap still didn't fit the fork.

Realistically, larger endcaps may work on some forks, but  a lot of people have had the same problem I had - so check first.

It should be easy popping on some DT350 12mm end caps on the front - but I've been wrong before.  ;-(

650x2.1 Thunder Burts are a great choice (although they handle a lot different than gravel tires - i think its because they don't have a rounded profile).

I need the front wheel.  If anyone just wants a back wheel, let me know!

DT actually makes a conversion endcap for 12mm. This is what you need:

It's too bad those rims aren't wider.  That's a hot deal.  

I'm like 95% sure the 370 hub uses the same caps as a 350, so yes they convert.  As Chas said, 12mm adapters don't work very often.  I just experienced it myself.  I do have one hub with 15mm caps that will work, at least in my fork.  

$175 is so cheap.  That has to be cost or below cost.
