A responsive 102T engagement ring delivers snappy, near-instant acceleration off the line.
Straight pull Pillar Wing PSR21 spokes are assembled in a two-cross pattern to enhance power transfer.
The wide internal width boosts the tyre profile to enhance comfort, grip and lower rolling resistance.
All Vel wheel models from 28 Alloy up to 85 Carbon RL and RSL are now officially competition approved.
Vel 3850 RL Carbon Tubeless Disc Wheelset
Offering a versatile option, Vel’s handbuilt 3850 RL Carbon Tubeless Disc Wheelset combines a 38mm deep front wheel with a 50mm deep rear. This means that the steering won’t be affected by blustery winds but that the aerodynamic advantages of a deeper rim are maximised at the back, making this an ideal wheelset for varied routes in all conditions.
The Toray 24/30T carbon rims have an internal width of over 20mm to better support wider style tyres and are recommended for use with rubber up to 34mm for a smooth, comfy ride with improved grip. As the rims come pre-taped with tubeless tape and the wheels are supplied with tubeless valves, setting them up for use without inner tubes is quick and easy, but inner tubes can still be used if preferred.
With six pawls and 102 tooth engagement ring on the Vel RE Rapid Engagement rear hub, pick-up and acceleration out of corners or when sprinting are near-instant and the two-cross, straight-pull Pillar Wing spokes transfer the power straight to the tarmac.
