Straight pull Pillar Wing PSR21 spokes are assembled in a two-cross pattern to enhance power transfer.
All Vel wheel models from 28 Alloy up to 85 Carbon RL and RSL are now officially competition approved.
These wheels feature a durable, brushed anodised finish with sleek, gloss black HRNT decals.
Fast and lightweight, this wheelset features a 28mm deep aero profile.
Vel 28 RL Alloy Tubeless Disc Wheelset
High-quality and reliable, Vel’s 28 RL Alloy Tubeless Disc Wheelset makes a great upgrade to the wheels supplied with many bikes and is also ideal as a winter option.
At 28mm deep, the alloy rim is ideal for use in blustery conditions as it won’t get pushed around as much as deeper alternatives, making handling safer and more secure and the smart brushed finish means that the wheels will match well with most bikes. The rims are supplied with tubeless tape fitted and valves included, so it is simple to take advantage of the benefits of tubeless running - fewer punctures, greater comfort and more grip.
Vel’s RE Rapid Engagement rear hub has 102 teeth for very quick pick up and efficient power transfer whilst the sealed bearings provide smooth, reliable rolling in all weather conditions. The spokes are Pillar Wing PSR21s, with an aerodynamic, bladed profile. Truing and replacement will be a simple task that is made even easier by the inclusion of spare spokes in the box.
