Buying Non-Boost Wheels in 2015?

So I'm finally ready to pull the trigger on a new carbon wheelset. Nox Teocalli. My Tallboy doesn't have Boost (148mm Hub Spacing) which is where all bikes are headed. Will my wheelset be trash when I get my new frame with Boost in 1-2 years? Will there be adapters for DT / Industry 9 hubs to accommodate Boost spacing?

Yes 142/12 will not work with the new boost 148 standard. Different flange spacing so no adapters will be available. I had the same question/ situation and will not be getting fancy hubs until I have a bike with this new standard.

Thanks man. Yeah, I decided not to buy myself. All SC bikes have 148, so likely on my next bike.
