The P35 is designed by "650b guru" and all-round bike inventor Kirk Pacenti so they are bound to be a bit different, and at 35mm wide they are large. Our build here shows them on a customers front hub from a Jones Spaceframe, at 135mm wide they are the same as most rear hubs.
The idea is that a super-wide rim expands the tyre more than normal so you get more traction, and you can run lower pressures making the tyre mould over bumps better - more comfort and less rolling resistance. More on the P35 rim here >
More rims from Velocity expand our 700c range and the A23 has already been popular in the short time we've stocked it. Wide-ish for a road rim at 23mm gives the tyre a bigger footprint and smoother more comfortable ride, with the potential to be more aerodynamic as well.
At £48 per rim the price is reasonable too, more on the rim here >
The A23 is shown above laced to an Ambrosio hub, usual price £216 for the pair but currently in our 2011 summer sale from £183>
The Deep-V is one of the Velocity rims that comes in a range of powder coated colours, we've picked the orange to look at as it's our company colour here. A deep section rim, it's mostly seen on fixies without the machined sidewalls (MSW) but we're not that cool so we've build a MSW on some Miche silver track hubs to take a look at them, normal price is £220 - Currently in our summer sale 2011 for £187
The only power coated 700c non-deep section rim available from Velocity. We've got a pair of the "space blue" colour to look at, they have a nice finish and a reasonable weight of 423g (checked by us). They are also available in this long list of colours:
Anodized finish: Black, Silver matt or Bright Gold.
Powder Coated: White, Electric Blue, Frost Blue, Yellow, Lime Green, Anti-Freeze Green, Tangerine Orange, Red or Purple.
