You might have noticed a trend of late in the Wheel Build of the Week: Matte Bourbon. We stocked-up in the last production run of this beautiful color, and so we've had enough hubsets to build wheelsets for a good number of riders, but that stock of matte bourbon is almost gone.
This is wheelset was built with one of the last sets of matte bourbon R45D hubsets, and it's a winner! If you were to come to us looking for the best gravel wheelset, this would be it. There are less-expensive options that would be great, but nothing quite touches the combination of light-weight, durability, ride quality, and tire-protection features that this wheelset has. It's just a stunning set no-matter how to figure it.

This weeks build of the week is another all made-in-usa build 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.
