Under Test: Velocity Blunt SS Wheelset

Wider doesn’t have to mean heavier thanks to Velocity’s Blunt SS wheelset. The 425g US-made (29″) rims feature shorter, thicker sidewalls for improved durability when paired with low pressure, tubeless tires. The company’s sealed bearing hubs are compatible with standard quick-releases and thru-axles, and freehubs are available for Shimano/SRAM 10/11, Campagnolo 11, or SRAM XX1 cassettes.
