Orome have created the Valar BH Series and we think the Valar BH Series are the highest performance, price ratio, carbon wheelsets. The Valar BH Series carbon wheelsets are tubeless ready, stiff and lightweight rims, with ceramic bearings hubs and a perfect balance of lightweight and aerodynamics, whether you’re on paved, or unpaved surfaces, punching up hills, or racing along flat roads, the Valar bh series wheelsets are an excellent choice.
Valar BH45 and Valar BH45d disc rims are made with Toray T800 carbon fiber. Our engineers have optimized the rims carbon layup, they have designed the high tensile carbon fiber at the most crucial points to provide rim stiffness. They use thinner prepregs for better control over the layup, which make the same wall thickness but come with more layers, and bring a lighter weight with better stiffness. Zero-coating design on carbon products surface is a top notch and difficult technology, unquestionably it’s a trend on high-end carbon products! With just a few factories having mastered the technology. Zero-coating technology and UD surface shows the fine fiber structure of the carbon rim giving each wheel an individual touch and reducing the rim weight.
All Orome Valar rim braking wheels have a textured brake surface, combined with our high-temperature resistant resin system, which enhances the rim’s overall durability and braking performance! The grooved track helps disburse water & debris more quickly between the brake pads & rim. It also provides additional edges that also add friction allowing the pad to better grip the braking surface. The high-temperature resistant resin construction ensures the track can withstands over 280°c, and with the grooved track, can better handle extreme temperatures and better dissipate heat build-up away from the pads
Orome Valar BH Series carbon wheelsets come with bespoke engineered cnc hubs. Fully machined alloy hubshell, optimized hub flange geometry for balanced wheel stiffness and rider comfort, both of the BH Series rim brake hubs and disc brake hubs are running a high-quality 6pcs ceramic bearings and 6 steel pawls driver system, our ceramic bearing will make your wheels roll faster, saving you energy and allowing faster cruising speeds, the other advantage of ceramic is that it is resistant to corrosion, harder, and last longer in everyday use.
Valar BH Series wheelsets use pillar PSA aero 1432 straight-pull spokes, T302+ stainless steel, pillar patented cold forge technology made up to 20% more strength, with an aero shape, high elasticity and low drag coefficient. The Valar BH rim brake rear hub has over-size flange and the spoke 2:1 lacing patterns design, this increases spoke bracing angles, boosting overall transmission and lateral stiffness for better power transfer.
All of Orome Valar wheels are tubeless compatible with bead seat retention, reinforced carbon hooks and 19mm width internal rim bed ensure a wider range of compatibility with tubeless tires from most manufacturers. Tubeless systems are designed to run at lower pressures than tube systems without any negative effects. A floor pump and the tubeless rim tape are needed for our wheels when you install the tubeless tire, we didn’t seal the spoke holes because our engineers think it will be easier to replace the spoke. If you’re not ready for tubeless, Valar wheels are also compatible with traditional clincher tires and tubes.
Our hand-built Valar BH Series wheels are a competitive priced range of carbon wheels, after a successful launch of the high-performance Valar DT Series wheels, all valuable experience have been carried over into BH Series carbon wheels.
