At 42mm deep, the Veil4 offers the best of both worlds. The mid-depth offers low weight while maintaining an aero advantage. It’s our favorite all-arounder, great for any combination of racing or training and capable on any road surface. Its durability is well-matched by USA-made hubs from our long-time partner, White Industries.
Like all Astral wheels, the Veil4 is hand-built in Eugene, Oregon and features a Tubeless Easy rim profile for painless set-up.
Going tubeless allows you to run lower tire pressures without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction, lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces, and decreased risk of a puncture-related flat.
Tubeless-ready rims and tires are parts of a complete system that eliminate the need for tubes by creating an airtight chamber between the rim and tire. Liquid sealant is added to the chamber to fill small punctures and maintain air pressure while you ride.
UST (Universal Standard for Tubeless) is a specific type of tubeless system that dictates the shape of the rim and tire beads. UST rims should be paired with UST-specific tires for best results.
