HED Jet RC9 Plus Rim Brake Wheelset
The HED Jet RC9 Performance offers an unprecedented level of versatility. With its low weight and clincher/tubeless tire convenience, it's a fantastic choice for rolling, hilly sportives, hard racing in its rawest of forms, or fast Sunday group rides.
The 90mm deep, wide and bulbous rim profile, naturally aerodynamically refined via HED's "Stability Control Technology", means the Jet RC9 Performance also ticks all of the boxes with regards to Time Trialing and Triathlon. With an envious blend of aero performance and super crosswind handling, aero bar security is guaranteed, even if you are a rider of slighter stature.
HED's hybrid carbon and aluminum 90mm deep Jet RC9 Performance rims, with all of their performance traits that grant pure riding speed, are utilized within this build. The aluminum, 32mm wide "Plus" rim acts as the base on which this rim is formed. This wider rim enhances the tire-to-rim interface which in turn offers far superior clincher tire sidewall stability and greater tire volume. As the tire is now "sitting" on the rim with an enhanced profile, the tire-to-road contact patch is morphed into a shorter, wider impression affording lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip. Enhanced comfort is then taken care of by the increased tire volume naturally afforded by widening the tire base.
The Jet RC9 Performance is ready for any hand that it's dealt in terms of terrain or type of competition, making it the perfect choice if you require a "one-wheel-does-everything" solution.
