I would say it depends on your type riding but I think the C2 will be a better all around wheel.

I would go with the C2 build. I have almost the same setup (spokes, # of spokes, and WI T11 hubs) except the Kinlin XC279 rim. They are fantastic.

It's hard to beat the C2. That rim has one of the most high quality finishes that I've seen on an alloy hoop, and it is pretty rigid for its weight.
