Velo Orange Raid highly polished alloy rim 700C x 32 or 36 hole
VO RAID Rim 700c
The RAID rim is a 22mm wide 700c rim. It's a box section rim with double eyelets. Double eyelets are rarely seen these days, but they add a lot of strength to a rim.
We feel that the 22mm width is the sweet spot for rando and touring rims. They are perfect for 25mm-38mm tires. The sidewalls (or brake track) are a little taller than old rims, for much easier pad setup without worry of tire interference.
VO paid a little more for stainless eyelets and a lot more for a high polish finish. We kept the graphics down to an absolute minimum; there is a simple VO sticker for identity.
32 or 36 hole; 530g; ERD is 607mm.
