Lightweight and Race-Ready Wheels — HED Vanquish RC4 Performance Carbon
Designed by the same minds and made by the same hands that are responsible for our full carbon Vanquish wheel series, the Performance version of HED's Vanquish wheels are primed and ready to race. The hooked 21mm (internal) rim bed is tubeless-ready.
The GP disc brake hubs and Sapim Sprint spokes control the wheel's cost but not their speed. Like the original Vanquish, the Performance charts not just very low drag, but also very similar drag numbers with tires ranging from 23-28mm tires. Ditch tire width anxiety and ride fast on any road surface! Like their other wheels, the all-carbon Vanquish RC Performance Rim is manufactured start to finish in the USA.
Shimano 10/11 or Sram XDR
Disc brake only.
Recommended tire width 23mm-45mm
These wheels are tube and tubeless compatible, built onto HED GP centerlock disk brake hubs, and come with tubeless rim tape and tubeless valves.
