The Venn Var 40 TCD wide disc brake 40mm gravel carbon wheels are aerodynamically optimised for wide tire use. The objective was to deliver a wheelset that is aerodynamic at large yaw angles.
Riding a bike over uneven terrain means that it is impossible to hold the wheel straight. It bounces, moves, you correct your direction to pick the best line, but you do not want to slow down. This means that your front wheel will not spend much time facing the direction that you intend to travel. The Venn Var 40 TCD carbon wheels were developed to make you go faster in real gravel conditions, not in a tunnel. The rim’s spoke hole strength is 100% higher compared to other carbon rims in the market. This ensures that you can use your wheels in any condition without fear of damage.
VAR filament winding process utilises slit tape towpreg to accurately lay up the carbon fiber in an automated, computer controlled process.
The use of preimpregnated carbon fiber tape allows us to use the latest resins that offer the optimal blend toughness and impact resistance. The Venn Var 40 TCD carbon wheels can therefore be used in challenging conditions where extra toughness is of great benefit.
The Venn Var 40 TCD SS 40mm gravel carbon wheels are compatible with clincher, or tubeless tires that when used with a sealant virtually eliminate the inconvenience of having a flat tire away from home, or during a race.
The wheels are built using our Venn Rea db hubs with IS-6 bolt rotor mount that are both very lightweight at 380g per set and durable since they are rated for MTB use.
It is internally wider (23mm vs 21mm) which better supports wider tires. This ensures that a relatively wide tire (for example a 28mm tire) obtains a more aerodynamic shape, and that it is more stable on the rim so that it rolls less when cornering at higher speeds.
Yes, it is strong and durable enough for XC use, while the slightly rounded and sloped rim sides protect it from most of the rock damage. However, the main advantage of this rim over standard MTB rims is its superior aerodynamics when used with tires 28-30mm wide.
