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!
Got a wheelset that you'd like to get built? Head over to our AVT Works Custom Wheel Page to get started!
