The Venn Alter wheels are designed to accommodate wide tyres and are the only carbon wheels on the market that are made primarily for cyclocross or gravel bike use. The rims are compatible with clincher or tubeless clincher tyres and are manufactured using Venn’s continuous tangent layup process.
The 44mm deep and 26mm wide U-shaped profile provide a very strong platform which delivers exceptional stiffness while allowing for a reduction in rim weight to just 430g.
Continuous Tangent Layup
In contrast to the standard carbon rim manufacturing process where a rim is composed of up to six distinct segments of carbon fibre, Venn’s continuous tangent layup process results in just a single length of UD carbon fibre around the entire rim circumference. There are no individual segments and thus not gaps in the layup and no overlaps.

The Alter 44 wheelset is a neat piece of equipment at very low cost. The material and overall visual quality brings confidence. A matte black paint hides the fibre pattern, which is a pity as filament winding prevent the overlaps seen on hand lay up wheels, and Venn could use it for marketing value. I have equipped them with Michelin Power Endurance tyres (23mm) front and rear. Having never tried CF wheels before, I was quite surprised by the change in weight and responsiveness. The wheels have taken any kind of irregular pavement without any problem so far. The aero shape makes a difference as speed increases, and at my level of fitness and performance (not much, alas!), it feels like it is worth half a sprocket easier for the same cadence. The set is well worth a try from my point of view. Pluses: - light - QC report included for spoke tension - brake pads included - strong and enduring braking power Minuses: - very noisy free wheel - no rubber pad to prevent the nut of the valves from loosening while riding
