For versatile performance across diverse terrains, the Vel 50 RSL2 Carbon Tubeless Disc Wheelset, meticulously handcrafted, stands out as the top choice. The 50mm deep Toray 24/30T carbon rim strikes a balance between aerodynamics, handling, and weight, making it equally adept on flat, high-speed roads and challenging mountainous routes. With a 27.5mm width, the rim enhances aerodynamics by smoothing airflow over the tire junction and provides robust support for tire sidewalls during aggressive cornering.
The increased tire volume not only boosts comfort and grip but also reduces rolling resistance. Leveraging the wheel’s tubeless capability amplifies these benefits, with the rims pre-fitted with tubeless tape for added convenience. The high-performance DT Swiss 240 EXP hubs feature thru-axles, Center Lock rotor fitting, and sealed bearings, ensuring responsive steering and efficient power transfer. The 36-tooth ratchet engagement ring delivers immediate response to pedal inputs. The inclusion of Sapim’s renowned CX-Ray spokes enhances stiffness, reliability, and overall efficiency, creating a compelling package for cyclists seeking top-tier wheel performance.
