Veltec’s Speed 4.5 ACC alloy/carbon clincher wheels are a good option for riders looking for a well-priced all-rounder which brings plenty of stiffness and an aerodynamic advantage.
If you’re not familiar with Veltec, it’s a German brand formed in 1995, but one which only arrived in the UK last year. They offer a wide range of wheelsets across road and mountain biking, all assembled in Europe and, generally speaking, at fairly competitive prices.
Wheels are often one of the first items to be upgraded on a bike – and it’s easy to understand why. The wheelset has a significant impact of how a bike rides, whether it’s in terms of reduced weight, increased stiffness, or, most relevant here, improved aerodynamics.
