What is it?
GVL stands for Gravel. The Prologue Series is a series of budget-friendly wheelsets. With new manufacturing techniques and materials we are able to keep costs down to spec a wheelset that has excellent performance for half to one-third of the costs of premium models.
All Prologue series wheels are built Skyuka hubs featuring 10-degree engagement and Abec 3 sealed cartridge bearings. The Skyuka rear hub is available in a Shimano Hyperglide and Sram XDR freehub body and requires no tools to swap between the different freehub body standards.
Built with Pillar TB2018 round double butted spokes and external brass nipples, the Prologue is built to be a great budget upgrade that can be ridden hard in even the most demanding conditions.
Prologue – It’s time to start something.
The GVL is designed to be a budget friendly, go everywhere and ride everything wheelset.
Confidently ride on any gravel road, fire road, or even singletrack and know that your wheels will hold up.
why do i need it?
Chances are unless you spent multiple thousands of dollars on your bike, the wheels are lacking in quality. You’re not going to want to spend more on wheels than your bike, but you always want an upgrade. The GVL will be that upgrade that will have the most impact on your bike’s performance and one you’ll enjoy every day.
Your wheels deserve the human touch. Our wheelbuilders put the same care into every wheelset that they would their own. Whether you are just riding for fun or winning a national championship, you deserve the confidence in knowing your wheels are built right.
GVL is also our home of Greenville, SC. Are we a little biased that we have some of the best gravel roads around? You bet! However, that also means we go out and ride those gravel roads hard. When it comes time to ride your next adventure know that your wheels will be up for the challenge.
