During this challenging time, we are working diligently to provide timely service to our customers.

We are continuing to process orders.
But COVID-19 has placed considerable pressure on our staffing levels and tracking numbers and other communications may be delayed..

As most of our staff is working from home, we are temporarily suspending telephone contact - please talk to us via E-mail - while it is taking more time than usual to reply we will get back to you.
Also please note that staffing at the various warehouses from which our products are shipped are significantly under staffed.
So shipping is taking longer. and UPS and Fedex delivery schedules have been stretched out due to a shortage of drivers.

So please be patient – we are responding to all communications as soon as humanly possible.
Please stay safe and follow CDC guidelines

When using a 23mm wide clincher tire with the A23 Wheelset, you get the qualities of a tubular ride while retaining the convenience of a clincher.

The A23 has been called a "Clinchular" because:
+ it has a tubular ride (smooth ride quality, lower rolling resistance)
+ it has the convenience of a clincher (ease of installation, easy to repair a flat, low cost).

The A23 is the newest road rim from Velocity.

When using 23c tires, the wider A23 rim creates a constant tire profile, rather than getting pinched into the rim.
The overall ride quality is improved and the result is tubular-like ride quality from a clincher tire.

If you are a large rider, or if you place serious torque on your wheels, you might consider OC (Off Center) rims.
With OC rims, all spokes on the rear wheel will be the same length.
The off-center drilling leads to more balanced spoke tension between the drive and non-drive sides.

+ 23mm for optimized contact patch resulting in lower rolling resistance
+ Tire Type: Clincher
+ Material: Alloy
+ Valve: Presta


Tight tolerances require the use of a low profile rim tape like Velotape to avoid tire installation issues. Veloplugs are not recommended on A23 or A23 OC rims
