HED Jet 4 Black Rear Wheel
HED starts with their revolutionary 25mm wide Jet Plus aluminum rim. As everybody knows by now, the wider rim improves handling and ride quality. A wider rim increases the amount of air volume which in turn allows the tire to be run at lower pressure. This lower pressure means that the bumps will be smoothed out in the road, which improves comfort. Unlike with narrow rims, the wide platform supports the tire sidewall so that you can corner with more confidence, as there is no tire flop. Lateral stiffness and drivetrain efficiency are improved.
What really makes things interesting is the Turbine Braking Technology on the black series wheels. Turbine Braking Technology is special machining and anodizing that creates a uniquely textured braking surface while improving cosmetics. Stopping is 25% better in dry conditions and a whopping 75% better in wet conditions. Additionally, the consistency of stopping distances has improved by nearly a factor of five.
The Jet 4 Black has a 46mm depth (and massive 25mm width), this rim results in lower side force than its deeper cousins, with aerodynamic performance that would make competitors' 80mm rims jealous. HED suggests using new standard aluminum pads with the Jet Black wheels to prevent the beautiful finish from being damaged due to existing debris in used brake pads. Includes titanium skewer, valve extender and tubeless rim tape.
