A23!


The wait is over! Today, we made it official. The A23 Wheelsets and Race Hubs are now available! Here is the copy of the press release we sent out earlier today.

Velocity releases A23 wheelset and Race Hubs

(Grand Rapids, MI) Velocity is proud to release their A23 wheelset and Race Hubs. Both products are a continuation of their belief in developing and producing wheels and rims that are the best to ride with. The A23 wheelset partners the popular A23 rim with Velocity’s new proprietary Race Hubs. The rear hub is designed with a 51% larger drive side flange height providing precise tension, allowing for a symmetric wheel that is stronger and stiffer than a rim laced to a ‘traditional’ flanged hub, optimizing power transfer. Using a 23mm wide tire with the A23, riders maximize tubular ride qualities while retaining the convenience of a clincher; increased cornering abilities especially at high speeds without sacrificing rolling resistance makes the A23 wheelset THE set for crits, ‘cross and road races!

Specifications on the A23 Wheelset:

Rim – 426 grams
Pro Build* – 1400 grams

*Built 20/24 with Sapim CX-Ray spokes and alloy nipples

Specifications on the Race Hub:

Front Hub – 78 grams – available in 20, 24 and 28 hole drillings
Rear Hub – 256 grams – available in 24, 28 and 32 hole drillings
