Some radially laced front wheels came in 18 and 26 spoke configurations, which is possible because radial lacing only has 2 groups (right and left). Such examples include Mavic Helium, Mavic Crossmax, and various Zipp wheels.

Correct, it's called G3 lacing. 9 radially laced NDS and 18 2 cross DS.
As well as a 21 spoke wheel (14/7)
