HED Jet RCD Black Rim Brake Disc Wheel
The HED Jet RCD Black Rim Brake Disc Wheel is a rear wheel that ramps up the aerodynamic performance of your favorite aero rim brake bike. Like the rest of the Jet Black series, it keeps the hybrid build of the wheel for a combination of value and performance. The sides of the disc are made with a lightweight and stiff carbon fiber while the braking track is made of durable aluminum. The surface used for the braking track greatly improves stopping power. HED claims that this material reduces distance by 25 percent in normal conditions and by a whopping 75 percent in wet weather.
In terms of aerodynamics, the Jet RCD Black Disc Wheel has very little competition. This wheel has been seen winning Tour de France time trials, World Championships time trials, and much more. With this wheel, you can expect stability across all wind angles, assuring that it will perform at a high level in real world situations. This wheel is also incredibly smooth rolling thanks to its 545 Straight Pull hub set. High quality stainless steel bearings minimize rolling resistance and increases longevity. Despite its high-tech setup, full service can be performed with the help of two simple 5mm allen keys. The HED Jet RCD Black Disc Wheel helps bring out the best in pure speed in your aero bike.
