Happy Holidays: Save $200 on Uriel Track Special Edition Wheelset

Just as scientists assumed the Coelacanth was extinct, many believed the Velocity Uriel rim to suffer a similar fate.

Not extinct.
Then, just as in 1938 off the coast of South Africa, a stunning discovery was made in the Velocity warehouse. While on a expedition through the warehouse, a pod of Uriel rims surfaced. They were then mated to some of our tried and true track hubs, and the Uriel Track Special Edition wheelset was born.

Also not extinct. 
The Uriel is our time tested Fusion rim, drilled for paired-spoke lacing. The wheelset features 24 DT Champion spokes front and rear, and DT alloy nipples, all laced, tensioned and trued by hand in The Wheel Department

Weight is 950/1020g front/rear, making these a nice mid-weight option that'll hold up on the street or track. Order a pair here, there's only a few left and when they are gone, they are gone until we stumble across some more in a dark, forgotten recess.
