Stronger rim recommendations, ideally UST

Just bought myself a second hand bike running Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs and DT Swiss XR400 rims. From what I read the rims are less than ideal for the kind of trail riding this bike will be doing (Cannock frequently and other trail centres as life allows), airborne where possible. Just wanted to know is it worth getting some stronger rims and asking the LBS to rebuild onto the Hope hubs, and do you have any recommendations?

I am about 85kg on the bike. Wheel strength is preferred to weight.
