Taiwanese brand Venn uses in the Rev 35 TCC a proprietary carbon-fibre manufacturing technique called filament winding, which it claims offers higher manufacturing uniformity, better performance and greater durability. As an OEM manufacturer Venn can also bring to bear economies of scale hence the low price for such an obviously good quality and technologically advanced wheelset.

The Rev 35 TCCs have a rim depth of 35mm and follow the modern trend of being wider with an external width of 27mm. Venn has wind tunnel data to demonstrate that the rounded, fat shape of the rim compares well to a deeper section, and it goes without saying that with less weight in the rim they accelerate and climb well too. The weight of 1,465g on our scales (lower than the 1,510g quoted weight) is very good indeed for a wheelset at this price.
