Even though modern wheels with 32H spoke counts are adequate for most use cases, for those who are looking for some extra strength and reliability, the 36H options might be worth looking into.

TLDR
  • Every spoke has a tension of 1200N (on the high-tension side).
  • The total "preload" of the wheel can be calculated when the tension of all spokes in a wheel is added together.
  • A wheel with a higher preload can withstand larger forces and is better serviceable.
  • The introduction of DT Swiss HX531 rims in 36H variants opens the market for customized builds. The only thing left to be decided is the choice of hubs.
