Product Image Velocity Aileron rims wheelset front and rear

Handbuilt Velocity Aileron road/CX disc brake only wheelset

£547.00


The Cycle Clinic loves the move to disc bakes for road bikes. This is a proper disc brake specific rim that is wide (25mm external 20mm internal), deep (27mm), aero (elipical profile) and stiff. This rim is perfect for road use or CX/gravel use. Tour on it, race literally one wheel can do it all. The rim is tubeless ready and the wheels are supplied with a tubeless kit.

The wheelset is offered in 28H drilling front and rear but 24H and 32H drilling can be built.  I offer a limited range of hubset all 11 speed compatible. The hubs offered are reliable. Q/R skewers are included if applicable.

28H (24H and 32H on request) Miche Syntium Dx hubs with thru axle kits for 142x12mm rear and 100x15mm/100x12mm thru axle kits. Q/R front and rear is available just ask at checkout (add a note). The freehub can either be shimano 11 speed, Campagnolo 9/10/11 speed or SRAM XD driver. Disc mounting is for 6 bolt rotors and shimano 8/9/10 speed spacer included. The hubs use a 17mm alloy axle and the freehubs are kept in stock a spares. 6803 bearings are used in the main shell.

28H (or 32H)  Shimano Ultegra RS770 centrelock 142x12/100x12mm thru axles shimano 10/11 speed spacer included. Excellent disc brake hubs from shimano with fantastic geometry..

28H (32H on request) Bitex B106F/106R hubs for centrelock rotors. The Bitex hub is an excellent piece of engineering using a 15mm rear axle and a myriad of end cap options. 1Q/R 100/135mm  will be assumed unless you tell me otherwise but 100x9mm, 100x12mm, 100x15mm, 135x10mm, 135x12mm and 142x12mm are all available and can be converted to to these standard before dispatch. let me know at checkout which you want.

Spokes used are Sapim Cx-ray black spokes and black alloy nipples. A spoke prep that acts as a corrosion inhibitor is used to prevent corrosion. This also stops the wheels going out if true as it has a mild thread locking effect. 

The wheels are supplied tubeless ready (valves, tape and IRC tubeless tyre levers). Wheels pictured are not supplied with tyres or disc rotors but these are available.
