VeloElite is a small company in the UK that hand builds all its wheels using premium components like DT Swiss hubs and Sapim spokes. The company offers a variety of wheelsets with disc or rim options catering for disciplines such as road, off-road, and gravel use - like the disc-specific VeloElite Carbon 350-Gravel we have here for testing.

The sub-£1,000 price tag catches your eye immediately, being an attractive price point when looking at premium gravel wheels. Other players in the market offer similar wheelsets for more money (though not always, as we will find out). But how does a small-scale company such as this fare against the best gravel wheels in the business?
