Best allrounder wheel build. H Plus Son Archetype Rim vs Velocity oc a23 vs zipp 101

Best allrounder wheel build. H Plus Son Archetype Rim vs Velocity oc a23 vs zipp 101
175 pounds
I have done some research here and other sites and mags.
I have heard of Daves Speed Dreams, Zen, Pure, Pro Wheel builder.com, Wheel Werks?
I ride all weather and paved/unpaved roads.
I do bunny hop and do little brief offroad excursions every once in a while.
I want that magic wheel that:
Races well but does not beat me up
Corners
descends
climbs
sprints
For riding in the rain-Alloy vs Brass with a good spoke prep or marine grease.
Alloy act like a fuse and give way vs rim damage?
durable hub and free hub body Ti vs Aluminum? I am thinking Ti.
Low maintenance and low cost to maintain
What am I missing?
I ride a 1999-2001 Litespeed Vortex or there about- all 6/4 shaped tubes.
Durability also.
I know it is practically impossible but that is what I am asking.
Maybe a White Ind. t-11 Hub, vs King... Leaning towards White Ind.
Spoke count and pattern?
Aero CX-Rays all around or Sapim lasers with race on the drive side vs butted for durability, aero, wt. are they worth it or is it just numbers?
Record 10spd
Thank you

If you're not comfortable with your LBS doing it, you can't go wrong with Justin Spinell of Luxe Wheelworks, Justin Bagnati at Signature Cycles, or Jude Kirstein of Sugar Wheels.

Wheel’s look is nice, I think combination of American classic “Alphatype” graphics and WTB’s frequency graphics worked together.

Wheelbuilder.com built me a set of Zipp 101's. Couldn't be happier with them. I weigh 160 after a pig out, went 18/20 spokes.
