Suggestions on 40/44 deep carbon clincher wheels narrower than 25mm

So I have a brand new set of Biyd 44 carbon clichers. Unfortunately, they wont work with my Look 795 Aerolight because they are too wide. Any suggestions on similar wheels narrower than 25mm? Any help appreciated!

I'm very happy with Reynolds Assault 41mm high rims. They are 17mm wide inside and right at 25mm outside. I'm running 25mm Gatorskins on an aero bike with very tight clearances. I have disc brakes, but they have a rim brake option too.

Very nice. What's a set weigh?

Mine are a couple of years old. Not sure of current model spec, but the rim brake version is listed at 1515 gm on the factory spec sheet. You can Google them or check with Reynolds. I replaced a set of 55mm Token rims that came on the bike. These are much more wind friendly.

Consider going to Tubular tires, like the Pros... rim can be even lighter..
