The Velocity Quill utilises design technology from the Aileron disc rim. Velocity have created a very stiff rim for its depth. The profile is the key to this.
Featuring an outer width of 24.5mm and an internal width of 21.1mm, the Quill’s voluminous width provides riders with substantial lateral stiffness even in lower spoke counts and increased ride quality and control. The 25.5mm depth, provides an aero profile giving it significant performance and durability gains over previous rim brake models. The Quill can easily be set up tubeless with the use of 21mm wide VAR tape. 23mm tape would be better if you can find it.
Tight tolerances require the use of a low profile rim tape like VAR tubeless tape to avoid tire installation issues. Normal rim strips will cause tyre fitting issues. Veloplugs are not recommended on Quill rims.
