The wide internal width boosts the tyre profile to enhance comfort, grip and lower rolling resistance.
Practical and corrosion resistant, brass nipples are used to reduce the risk of seized spokes.
With a high strength to weight ratio, these spokes are a premium option for any quality wheel build.
Vel 50 RSL Carbon Tubeless Disc Wheelset
For all-round performance on varied parcours, Vel’s handbuilt 50 RSL Carbon Tubeless Disc Wheelset should be the go-to option. The 50mm deep Toray 24/30T carbon rim balances aerodynamics with handling and weight, so it won’t be found wanting on flat, high-speed roads but neither will it get left behind in the mountains. At 27.5mm wide, the rim helps smooth airflow over the junction with the tyre and adds good support for the tyre sidewalls when cornering hard. The extra tyre volume it provides comes in handy too, increasing comfort and grip whilst lowering rolling resistance. These benefits are even more pronounced if the wheel’s tubeless capability is taken advantage of, and the rims are supplied with tubeless tape fitted for a headstart.
The high-quality DT Swiss 240S hubs offer thru-axles, Center Lock rotor fitting and sealed bearings, ensuring that the steering is sharp and power transfer efficient, whilst the 36 tooth ratchet engagement ring gives instant response to pedal inputs. Sapim’s renowned CX-Ray spokes and brass nipples tie the compelling package together, further improving stiffness, reliability and efficiency.
