I'd like to use Sach New Succes hubs and Fir Aliseo rims (16/24) for cyclocross racing.

Are the 16/24 spokes (DT 2.0) strong enough?

And what about the hubs? Sealed well?

What do You think? What is Your opinion?

I'm not familiar with either, but 16/24 sounds really low for CX unless you weigh 65kg or less and ride lightly.

I'm 74kg and feel like I put a lot of stress on my 32 spoke wheels (CX Ray spokes).
The hubs will probably work just fine, but as Geoffrey says, you may want a few more spokes in the front wheel. This isn't a road race.

...and aero isn't going to be as big a player as lighter weight. You need to accelerate these wheels over and over and over in cross. If you can afford em, go with the same # of spokes, just carbon rims. Tubular is better, but its up to you. If the wheels are already built, you may be able to match the ERD with some chinese carbon rims for not too much money.
