    Velocity Fusion v. Aerohead rims

    So im looking for a good rim for my front wheel build. I want a rim that is as deep or very similar to say an alex r450 rim. I like the sound of the fusion rim, but is it deeper thean an alex r450 rim? Also does anyone have experiance with either rims?

    Thanks

    looks like the aeroheads are much closer in depth. i've heard many many good things about them.

    aeroheads are great, fusions are great. velocity makes a product that they stand behind with excellent policies toward customer satisfaction. got deep-v's on my road bike, aeros on my reminton, and a fusion rear rim on my faggin. all tough as nails, and if you don't get them in flashy colors they're pretty subtle & classy.

    and if subtle & classy's not your thing, you're also in luck!

    i've had both rims and they are equally good. the aeroheads are lighter, but i don't see that as a problem since they are still strong. the fusions look like a deep v but are lighter. my wife runs the aeroheads and i ran fusions because i weight more than 200 pounds. either way you have great rims.

    aeroheads are excellent rims.
    I prefer aeros, however - aesthetically at least.

    and the IRO rims are identical to fusions in specs
    but not manufactured by velocity.
    I can recommend IRO rims as well.
