For years cyclists have been lamenting the loss of the simple box section rim in a shiny silver polished finish. So Velo Orange has worked with one of the premier rim companies in Taiwan to find a replacement. We researched different widths, shapes, and materials, and what was being currently sold. It quickly became apparent that we needed to offer an alloy doublewall rim. Doublewall construction adds a bit of weight as compared to singlewall (or open box) rims, but we feel a classic doublewall box design is far superior in terms of overall strength, load capacity and impact resistance, particularly with modern aluminum alloys.
The 27" PBP rims weigh around 484g. The 19.3mm outside width and 13.2mm inside width is ideal for tires up to 32mm (1 1/4"). ERD is 615mm.
We paid a little more for stainless eyelets and a lot more for a high polish non-anodized finish. We kept the graphics down to an absolute minimum; there is a simple VO sticker for identity.
The 27" PBP rim is offered in 36 hole. Price is per rim. We recommend 90-110 kgf for these rims. You should not exceed 115 kgf.
Rim Inside Width: 13.2mm
Rim Outside Width: 19.3mm
