Whisky GVL carbon tubeless wheels are built to bring an exceptional ride to your gravel and all-road exploits. Lightweight and stiff carbon rim construction keeps rotational weight down and efficiency up. The 23mm internal rim width pairs well with tires ranging from 32mm to 2.2-inches wide, so you can equip it with the right tire for any gravel ride. The GVL’s asymmetric rim profile equalizes spoke tension and angles for stronger, stiffer wheels that provide a more efficient and predictable ride.
Whisky wheels are laced, tensioned, and hand-finished in Minnesota, where our experts have decades of experience building wheels one spoke at a time. Every wheel we sell comes with Whisky tubeless valves and tape in the box. And, we’ve chosen each component with a focus on performance, reliability, and serviceability.
Whisky GVL wheels use DT Swiss 350 hubs, well-known for their balance of performance, weight, and tool-free serviceability. DT Aerolite spokes set the light-weight standard for wheel builders. We chose traditional, j-bend spokes and brass nipples for their durability and serviceability. Both are readily available at your local bike shop and ensure easy maintenance.
These disc brake-specific wheels have an understated design with clean lines and subtle graphics that look great on any bike. Whisky GVL wheels are a versatile option, perfect for anything from gravel to cyclocross to road rides that get a little off the beaten path.

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.
