Stan’s Iron Cross rims built with Sram X9 hubs and butted DT Swiss spokes. $461 including a tubeless kit.
This has been a popular build for cyclocross racers and gravel roaders using disc brakes. The hubs have smooth running cartridge bearings and a 3 pawl ratchet for dependable engagement. The X9 hubs aren’t light but their price keeps the wheelset cost down. The Stan’s Iron Cross rims are super lightweight though at 385g. This saves weight at the outside of the rotating mass where it is most important.
