Vel 23 GRL Alloy Gravel Disc 650b Wheelset
Whether used on smaller frames for better handling or on bigger bikes to make room for larger tyres, Vel’s 23 GRL Alloy Gravel Disc 650b Wheelset is a great choice for gravel duties.
With a 102 tooth engagement ring, the freehub offers quick pick-up when accelerating up a climb or out of a corner and the sealed bearings ensure that the hubs run smoothly despite any mud or puddles.
The 28mm wide alloy rims allow tyres up to 47c or 2.15” to be fitted for greater comfort and grip off-road, especially if run tubeless. As the wheels are supplied with tubeless tape installed and tubeless valves in the box, setting up the wheels for use without inner tubes is quick and simple.
Reliability is key to off-road riding, so Pillar Wing wing spokes and brass nipples have been used to complete the build, making maintenance, truing and replacement as straightforward as possible. Spare spokes and nipples are included with the wheelset so that any issues can be solved with the minimum of time and hassle.
