HED took their exceptionally performing Ardennes Plus wheels and blacked them out using exclusive Turbine Braking Technology so you can go from zero to sixty and back to zero again faster than ever before. This is the result of the Ardennes Plus Black's specially machined and anodized directional brake track that makes for 25% shorter stops in the dry and 70% shorter stops in the wet compared to the standard Ardennes Plus.

At 24.5 mm deep with an external rim width of 25 mm making an internal width of 20.7 mm, these wheels make a great all-round choice for a race / training clincher. The wide rim makes full use of your tires for optimum traction and ride comfort, while also letting them create a more aero profile that's in-line with the rest of the rim. 18 Sapim CX Ray spokes in the front and 24 in the back are laced to black HED Sonic hubs for silky, reliable performance, and at a claimed wheelset weight of just 1430 g, it's a wonder you haven't disappeared up the road already.

Tubeless compatible. Includes titanium skewers and tubeless rim tape.

Signature will be required when taking delivery of this product.

I use this wheel for my everyday riding. I use it to do training on the hills. It climbs like nothing would stop it. It responses quickly. the width of the rims help you descentconering with super confident. Just point and go.

I haven't used these wheels on the road yet, but I can say the tubeless Schwalbe Pro One tires mount very easy and the new hubs look like a big improvement. They weigh about 10 grams less than the advertised 1430 grams which is very light. It also is amazing to see a manufacturer's weight claim accurate.

I have used the Ardennes SL Plus, set up tubeless and they are very, very, nice wheels.

The 23 mm Schwalbe Pro Ones measure 26 mm on these rims, and the 25 mm measure 28.5 .

I am anxious to try out this Black turbine brake track, I am expecting good results and Andy at Hed has been a very good person to deal with if questions need to be addressed.

Excellent braking wheel!

The Pros for this wheel Great looks, terrific braking, smooth rolling, made to accommodate 25c or 28c tires.

The Cons Rim tape provided for use with tubeless tires is also a MUST USE for tires with tubes to prevent tubes from being cut by spoke holes in the rim. Very difficult to mount tires with tubes (I haven't tried tubeless tires yet).
