VAR CARBON ROAD WHEELS – Rim Braking
VAR Carbon Road Bike Wheels deliver aerodynamic performance with formidable ride quality thanks to their huge 21mm internal width. Fast and rotationally light, they accelerate quickly and handle predictably in crosswinds. Optimised for use with 25-28c tyres at low pressures, they are ideally suited to the harsh road surfaces frequently encountered in the UK. Tubeless ready but equally happy with inner tubes.
Available in either 35mm or 45mm deep configurations the Venn VAR carbon rims help to realise a wheel which is laterally very stiff but still vertically compliant, thanks to the 45 degree fibre layup bias. The VAR filament winding process utilises slit tape towpreg to accurately lay up the carbon fibre in an automated, computer controlled process. Pre-impregnated carbon fibre tape allows the use of the latest resins that offer an optimal blend of high glass transition (Tg) temperature exceeding 240° C in testing, toughness and impact resistance.
In practical terms, Venn Rims enable wheels to be built more accurately and with a very even spoke tension distribution, which increases long-term durability and performance of the wheel. Hand built in Sussex with pride and attention to detail.
Standard 20/24 spoke configuration is built with a reliable DT Swiss 350 hub and the premium Sapim CX-Ray spoke: suitable for riders up to 90Kg. Enhanced spoke counts, thicker gauge spokes and various hub combinations are available to tailor the wheel to your individual requirements: use the Contact page or call 01403 333 211 to discuss your bespoke carbon road bike wheels today.
