There are tons of hubs- Hope and Bitex being a couple readily available brands, that are 142mm TA by default and can be easily converted to 135mm QR.
Or find some discontinued Shimano CX75 that are QR standard(though still centerlock).
These are decent 11-speed hubs. They are on my son's MTB and road bike.

This is also true of some road cassettes with 34 tooth cogs. Ultegra R 8000 for example.
