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.
