I'm looking for the deepest section alloy tubular rims available, for track wheels.
The now discontinued Velocity Pro Elite rim is the deepest I could find.

Anything else guys ?¸

Thanks for your help :beerchug:

Ah... How about shallower and less spokes?

If you are looking for aero, narrow flange spacing, narrow tire and fewer spokes are going to help more than deep section.

You don't get the looks or the inertia though.

Well looking for the fastest wheels possible ( budget minded though) :D !!
- Tubular, width to decide. Best for omnium (all events).
- Deepest as possible
- I can build a 20/24 set with a strong rim as the Pro Elite. Riders weight 105-110 lbs .
- What's considered narrow in track hub flange spacing ? I'll go for cheap asian hubs
