Help needed for finding a replacement rim!

Hi All, These are my current rims: Wheeltech TD26 by Alex Rims (can't find much info about these online). I need to replace the rear wheel as it is cracked (cracks on the rims around a few spokes)
It's a 700C disc brake rim with quick releases. What do I need to consider other than the size of the wheel when choosing a replacement? I'll likely migrate over the cassette and rotor (if need be). My knowledge of rims is limited so any help is appreciated!

Here is my bike: https://www.bikes.com/en/bikes/whistler/2015 (Must select Whistler 70 when on the site)

Thanks all!

Can you not get a new rim laced onto your old hub?

Hey, I just learned that that was an option! What do I have to look out for when finding a replacement rim?

But don't you have Alex rims on your wheel?
Use the contact function to explain to them what you need and ask them to suggest a replacement from their current range.
Alternately source a wheel locally the same size and width of rim.

That's exactly why I posted the link.

Alex rims are hard to find retail. If you replace with a different rim, then it needs to be the right diameter (700c etc) suitable width, right number of spoke holes, similar ERD if you want to reuse the spokes.

That's right @the snail and we don't know where the OP is. Maybe not in the UK?
