There are two other threads dealign with this, one of them is here the other is in the 29er forum.

As far as differences, I believe the only difference is that 09 are made with scandium and sport louder graphics.

Hope that helps. I'm waiting for the 09 rims to be available to build a set.

They are different

The 2008 X-lite wheels use DT 240 Swiss internals and are re-badged Bontrager.

The 2009 hubs are not DT Swiss re-badged. Bontrager makes them or has someone else make them. They claim that the hubs are better but that is probably debatable since DT 240 hubs are pretty stellar.
