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 50 RL Carbon Tubeless Disc Wheelset
Vel’s handbuilt 50 RL Carbon Tubeless Disc Brake Wheelset is both fast and efficient, making them a great upgrade from stock wheels. With an internal width of over 20mm they work perfectly with wider, modern tyres, providing good support for the sidewalls and allowing lower pressures to be run for more comfort and grip. Their aerodynamic shape cuts through the wind to reduce drag without being a handful in crosswinds whilst the straight pull Pillar Wing spokes ensure accurate steering and good power transfer.
The Vel RE aluminium hubs house sealed bearings for smooth running and longevity, with Center Lock disc fitments providing safe, secure disc rotor mounting. The rear hub uses a 102 tooth engagement ring with six pawls for super-fast engagement, so the instant the power is applied the bike will accelerate. The rims come with tubeless tape already applied and as tubeless valves are also supplied, the conversion to using these tubeless-ready tyres is a simple process. These rims can also be used with a traditional clincher tyre and inner tube if preferred.
