Carbon 29er rim

Edge Composites seems to be coming on the scene hot and fast selling all manner of carbon fiber bike components. How many of you knew they were making a 29er mountain bike rim? How many people knew that anyone was making a carbon 29er rim? Scary light, but probably necessary for today's XC and endurance racers to stay competitive. I saw this model (it's the bigger hoop in the picture) at the Edge booth at the Santa Rosa stage finish of the Tour of California.

Do you see carbon rims very often on the cyclcocross circuit?

Oh yeah, some people claim that deep dish carbon aero rims give you better speed through the mud.
