The A23 is the newest road wheelset from Velocity. The rear hub has offset flanges to provide precise tension, allowing for a symmetric wheel that is stronger and stiffer than a rim laced to a "traditional" flanged hub; which optimizes power transfer. Using a 23mm wide tire with the A23 maximizes the tubular ride qualities while retaining the convenience of a clincher; increased cornering abilities especially at high speeds without sacrificing rolling resistance makes the Velocity A23 wheelset THE set for crits and road races.
I had these for about a year for road racing and gravel road racing. They spun up very quickly and are very good through corners. The wider rim bed seems to help the tire profile making it nice for crits or other fast cornering situations.
The wide rims are also good for taking wider tires like those for cx. Overall a very good tire at a reasonable price. Eventually I moved to disc brakes and tubular so I no longer have these exact wheels but am still running a very similar build laced up to a powertap hub that I used for racing crits this year and training.
