Which of these hubs is better, more durable, etc? Which would build a stronger wheel?

The XTR would be 28 spoke DT Swiss Comp 1.8/1.6/1.8

The WTB would be 32 spoke DT Swiss Comp 1.8/2.0/1.8

The rim will be the same (DT Swiss 4.2D). The XTR hubs will require a CL adapter. Including the adapter, the cost and weight will be about the same.

The WTB wheel build will be stronger and more durable simple because it has more and thicker spokes.

Fewer AND thinner is not a good idea.
