Rims similar to the HED C2 series?

I'm looking to build a wheelset that I can stick 25c tires on as easily as 35. What are my rim options? I'm sort of striking out with Velocity, Mavic, and Kinlin. The Velocity A23 might come closest to what I want but I'd love to have a depth of around 30mm rather than 20. Aluminum rims would be preferred because I'm not made of money.

If anyone else is in the same conundrum, I realized yesterday that the C2 rim is sold independent of the wheelset. Problem solved.

Velocity Dyad?

Strong enough for people use this for tandems, so why not for CX.

Salsa Delgado Cross is a similar width to the C2s. C2 rims are sold separately, but only in 24h that I've been able to find.
