This weeks build of the week is another all made-in-usa build that gives super stealth performance in more ways that one.

Velocity Blunt SS rims are one we use frequently for a variety custom wheel builds here at AVT. 

Specifically designed to be best-in-class for cross country MTB use, the Blunt SS is equally at home on a gravel or urban bike. Shorter and thicker sidewalls give it incredible durability even when paired with low pressure, tubeless tires. I-beam bead hook maximizes internal width for optimum tire performance.

When paired with these all black ONYX Vesper hubs you end up with a super silent, instant engagement, durable and highly serviceable set of hubs that will last you a very, very long time!

This custom wheelset is set up in non-boost mode with 12x100 / 12x142 thru axles in a 27.5" rim size, ideal for use in a non-Boost mountain bike or a 650B gravel wheelset.

  • Rim. Velocity Blunt SS 27.5"
  • Rim Width. 30mm
  • Rim Height. 20mm
  • Optimal Tire Width. 45mm - 65mm

This week's wheel build of the week is another super versatile gravel set up that's equally at home on road or CX.

Astral's Wanderlust Carbon rim is originally designed as a lightweight adventure / gravel rim capable of running up to 2.5" tires. But given their rim profile (23mm internal, 29mm external) they can perform double (or triple) duty as a pure road rim or cyclo-cross race wheelset.
