While searching for the right manufacturer for the next generation of Superstar Components custom carbon rims to replace the ledgendary AM Carbons, we discussed with a provider of the latest filiment wound carbon technology. As their inhouse VENN branded rims were so good we decided to just build our wheels with them on our high end UK manufactured hubsets!
We weren't going to goto the usual cheap carbon wholesalers and sell a rebadged mediocre product like most value brands out there (often with a premium pricetag!). These are packed with interesting and innovative technology, ready to step your performance upto the next level. Wide and light at 460g per rim.
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 of high glass transition temperature (Tg), toughness and impact resistance. Var rims can therefore be used in challenging conditions.
The profile of the VENN Enduro30 rim was developed to offer the best performance when used with modern wide high volume tires. The external width of 35mm optimizes the durability and grip with wider tires, while the internal width of 30mm ensures that the wider tires achieve a stable, round profile. The rim width also means that the rims are laterally very stiff while the filament winding process ensures that the rims remain vertically compliant due to the 45 degree fiber layup bias. The combination of these features results in very fast, safe handling wheels that can be used in any conditions.
