Velocity is moving forward full-speed with their US-production, developing new rims and upping production. The newest being their Aileron disc-specific “aero” rim. This tubeless-ready rim is 28mm tall, 25mm wide and 480 grams. Best of all, at least ATMO, it’s made in the USA.
No, it’s not April 1st, this one’s for real. In fact, it’s so real that it’s in stock now at the Velocity Web Shop… Tempting, isn’t it?
“Convinced there was a better use for leftover Australian-made rims (we now manufacture our rims in Jacksonville, Fla.), our in-house wheelbuilders at The Wheel Department set out to find it. We posted a picture of a prototype “upcycled” hanger online, and the response was overwhelming.”
Mirror-polished, deep-section rims can in fact look very classy on your track bikes. Velocity‘s Deep Vs may carry the “H” word stigma but if you’re looking for a rim that will literally withstand years of abuse and still look classy, check out the new polished Deep Vs that Bens Cycle just got in stock!
