This weeks wheel build of the week is not a spec we see too often here at AVT, but that's what custom wheels are all about!
These Industry Nine Torch hubs in purple are paired to Whisky Parts No 9 GVL Gravel) Rim with Sapim CX Ray spokes and brass nipples. The result is a great looking, lightweight, fast gravel wheel set up at a price that's tough to beat.
The No.9 GVL carbon rim’s low rotational weight and the aerodynamic benefits of its 35 mm-deep rim profile help you conserve energy over miles of rollers, false flats, and whatever else your gravel rides throw at you.
The 23 mm internal width pairs well with a wide range of tires for versatility in unpredictable conditions. The asymmetric rim profile equalizes spoke tension and angles for stronger, stiffer builds, making the No.9 GVL a solid foundation for wheels that will take your gravel bike to the next level.

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.
