HED Jet 6 Black Rear Wheel
The HED Jet Black rear clincher wheel combines outstanding aerodynamics with unbelievable braking. It makes an excellent choice for those wanting a big aerodynamic benefit without sacrificing brake performance or reliable tire seating. It goes without saying the murdered-out all black color scheme looks fantastic.
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 6 Black is perhaps the fastest wheel and best choice for any discipline on any day. Put another way, if you were to roll the dice on weather conditions, hills, wind, frame design, and every other potential variable, chances are that your ideal wheel would be this one. Some pair a rear Jet 6 Black with a front Jet 4 Black, when side wind is extreme.
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 skewers, valve extenders and tubeless rim tape. Shimano/SRAM compatible with all cassettes including 11-speed. Please call 800-627-6664 to arrange Campagnolo compatibility.
