When looking for a low-profile aero rim that's tubeless compatible, light-weight, and made-in-USA, there aren't a whole lot of options, but luckily Velocity USA has a very good one: the Aileron.

This week's Wheel Build of the Week is a great all-around road wheelset (that could be equally at home on a gravel bike), that's made-in-USA, and looks pretty sweet too!  The Aileron rim has a nice 28mm depth with a 20mm internal width and 25mm external width, and is designed to have the best aerodynamics when combined with tires in the 23-28mm range.  Being tubeless ready just adds to the already great package.

 

 

Built on White Industries' CLD hubs using Sapim's CX-Ray spokes (in silver!), this wheelset is light without being fragile, and will deliver lasting performance.  Sound good to us!

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.
