I think you also need to consider the cross section of the rim. Neuvation is comparing two of their rims with the same cross section as an example. Don't most of Mavic's tubeless wheels have an extra box construction that Reinforces the wheel. They also have extra material around the spokes that thins between the spokes. And I'm pretty sure that wider rims (the current rage) are also inherently stiffer.
So, a rim designed for low spoke count rather than a 'standard' rim with fewer spoke holes?
