HED Ardennes Black Stallion Clincher Wheelset
Brake with confidence and roll fast with the HED Ardennes Black Stallion Clincher Wheelset. Designed as the perfect climbing set, this the Stallion version of the wheelset offers a 20/28 spoke configuration. This helps to further enhance stiffness while also reducing the threat being left stranded from a broken spoke.
Whilst these lightweight wheels are perfect for going uphill, their braking performance is where they will really separate themselves on the descents. HED have incorporated their Turbine Braking Surface into these rims and the effect has been remarkable. HED claim that this braking surface can reduce braking distances by 25% in the dry and up to 70% in the wet. These sort of reductions will definitely come in handy on long descents as they will allow you to carry more speed into the corner.
Tubeless compatible, the HED Ardennes Black Standard Clincher Wheelset is designed for optimised stiffness and rolling resistance. The wider 25mm rim profile helps to enhance stability and tyre purchase when cornering. The 24.5mm rim depth is ideally suited to climbing when the extra weight of a deeper rim profile is unnecessary.
HED's new Sonic Black hubs grace the front and rear wheels. On the rear this ensures rapid freewheel engagement so you can get the power down as soon as you step on the pedals. Available in Shimano/SRAM and Campagnolo options, this wheelset is compatible with 9, 10 and 11 speed cassettes. The included titanium skewers and tubeless rim tape means you be ready to start rolling right away.
