For flat terrains demanding high speeds, Vel’s 6085 RL Carbon Tubeless Disc Wheelset with mixed depths is an excellent choice. The rear wheel maximizes speed and aerodynamics, while the slightly shallower front wheel ensures easy handling. Both wheels feature wide Toray 24/30T carbon rims, with a 20.3mm internal measurement providing robust support to the tire’s sidewalls. The 27.5mm external width ensures a seamless airflow transition over the rim/tyre interface.
Handcrafted with precision, the aerodynamic straight-pull Pillar Wing spokes create a two-cross pattern, enhancing strength and stiffness. This design provides a sturdy foundation for Center Lock discs and efficient power transfer. Vel RE hubs, equipped with sealed bearings for durability and easy maintenance, utilize a 102-tooth engagement ring in the freehub for rapid acceleration during sprints or corner exits. The wheels come pre-fitted with tubeless rim tape and include tubeless valves, allowing for straightforward conversion to tubeless setups. This feature enables riders to run lower pressures for increased comfort and grip without the risk of pinch punctures.
