1. The Quill is our most innovative road rim to date. Utilizing design technology from our Aileron disc rim, we’ve evolved our most successful and proven A23 road rim and developed the Quill to be lighter, stiffer, and wider than its predecessor.

  2. When your training rides are every bit as intense as race day, you need wheels that can hold up to the abuse. Velocity wheels can deliver race performance every day.

  3. Mountain bike trails can be a magical place. Velocity sponsored rider Danielle Musto, and Velocity shipper Bob Zeilstra find that out first hand.

    The Blunt SS is the next evolution of our American-made Blunt line of mountain disc rims. Specifically designed to be best-in-class for cross country use, the SS can be found atop race podiums and also on your pal's bike commuting to the trail. Light enough to win, tough enough to last.

  4. We can't give you a warm blanket on a cold night, but we can give you a touring rim that won't leave you stranded. The Cliffhanger is the best tool for your next adventure. A travel companion that will never complain, give up, or use your last new tube.

    Strength comes first...short and stout sidewalls guard against pinch flats and denting from impacts: a pothole, a rocky descent, or dodging that rhino outside of Jakarta.

    A generous 25mm internal rim width allows more tire contact with the road which supports you and your gear more safely and comfortably than conventional narrow rims.

    Tubeless is optional: use conventional Veloplugs or rim tape, or a tubeless conversion if that's your thing.
