Velocity – Interbike 2009

Velocity had a couple of new rims that they are releasing, foremost is the new P35 or Pacenti 35 . The ultra wide 35mm rim should work really well for fat tires, and should fit in nicely for All Mountain riding. The width will give uber stiffness, and the wide footprint will float and grab terrain like crazy. The rim came with some trick spoke hole plugs, in lieu of a rim strip. They are working on a tubeless kit for the P35, which should be avaliable in early 2010. The rim was co-designed by Kirk Pacenti, who is also well known for his development of the 650b wheel size for mountain bike use. The colors run the full gamut of black, silver, white, red and antifreeze green.

P35 Specs:

Outside Width: 35mm
Inside Width: 29.5mm
Depth: 22mm

Weight:
29”: 595g
650b: 570g
26”: 535g

They also had some faux wooden rims, that looked pretty trick.

Velocity Bicycle Accessories originated in Brisbane Australia over 20 years ago with the introduction of their adjustable water bottle cage; the Velocage. Since that time they have expanded their offerings to include rims, wheels and other cycling accessories for nearly every style and size of bike imaginable.

    You mean to tell me that of all the rims Velocity makes, the only one worth talking about is one made for the tiny, almost microscopic market of stupid 650B bikes?

    MTBR needs much better Interbike correspondents. Please.

    Hmmm, I said it was made in 26, 650b and 29? I only mentioned its designer as a side note, and what he is known for. What I was stoked about was the massive width these rims came in. I plan on testing these babies in a 26er.
