Vel 23 GRL Alloy Gravel Disc Wheelset
Tough and reliable, Vel’s 23 GRL Alloy Gravel Disc Wheelset is a smart-looking upgrade designed for the rigours of gravel riding and racing.
The black anodised alloy rim has an external width of 28mm in order to provide support for tyres up to 47c wide, helping the sidewalls when cornering or hitting bumps on the trail. As it is tubeless-ready and supplied ready taped, it is easy to enjoy the benefits of tubeless running, with lower pressures meaning more grip and comfort along with fewer punctures.
Sealed bearings keep the Wel RE hubs running smoothly with minimum maintenance and the freehub has a 102 tooth engagement ring for near-instant drive; handy for accelerating out of corners and picking the front end up on technical climbs. Brass nipples and high-quality Pillar Wing spokes offer a compliant and efficient ride, with easier truing and replacement, and appropriate spare spokes and nipples are provided.
