Vel 30 GRSL2 Carbon Gravel Disc 650b Wheelset
A premium, handbuilt option for gravel aficionados, Vel’s 30 GRSL2 Carbon Gravel Disc 650b Wheelset combines a wide, lightweight Toray 24/30T carbon rim with DT Swiss hubs and Sapim spokes, making it strong, stable and reliable for off-road adventures. The 32mm wide rim provides good support for tyres up to 2.25” wide, allowing them to maximise their air volume and remain stable in the corners. As the rim is tubeless-ready and has a double wrap of tape applied, conversion to tubeless is simple; there are even tubeless valves supplied.
The 36 tooth ratchet in the premium DT Swiss 240 EXP rear hub provides instant engagement, handy for quick accelerations and bursts of power on tricky, technical climbs off-road. Sealed bearings, thru-axles and Center Lock rotor compatibility complete the feature roster, helping keep the wheels tracking straight on rocky sections of trail. The hubs and rims are laced together using renowned Sapim CX-Ray spokes and brass nipples for strength, reliability and easier maintenance, with spare spokes and nipples included with the wheelset.
