Speed, stability, control and affordability. Those are the qualities of the HED Jet 9 Pus Rim Brake Front Wheel. The 90mm deep Jet design receives the Plus external rim width of 25mm (internal 21mm). The Plus rims further advanced HED's understanding of aerodynamics, wheel control, and overall stability. The Jet concept has been around too long to mention as well, and HED continues to draw excellent drag numbers off of the light carbon fairing that is bonded to an extruded aluminum rim. When it comes to aerodynamics in cycling, very few individuals can stand alongside Steve Hed and many of his early designs have proven to set standards and still measure as fast and efficient today.
The wider footprint of the Plus rim gives a more natural air flow transition from a wider tire over the rim surface. The Jet shape and profile then utilize that flow as laminar pressure, propelling the wheel as the air slips past. Aero wheels have long been fast, but riding them could be tricky in 30 degree yaw angle winds, corners, or even in groups of cyclists. The Plus rim fully stabilizes the base of the wheel and tire, giving the rider a wider contact patch, but also keeping the wheel in place and advancing the benefits of this tubeless compatible design. This inspires confidence, and a confident rider goes faster, with a more assertive approach to cornering, descending, and simply riding at higher speeds- even at lower pressures.
The Jet 9 Plus Rim Brake Front Wheel is a fast, cost-effective performance wheel that is great for triathlon, time trials, road or criterium racing. The rims are carried with bladed steel spokes on HED's cartridge bearing rear hub.There are three front wheel options: the standard 18 spoke set-up in black with white decals. The 20 spoke option is available in either the Black or black with white. All options are laced radial for an ideal combination of aerodynamics and stiffness. For those who prefer to run tubeless tires and sealant, tubeless tape is installed and can be run with tubes or tubeless. HED recommends a minimum tire width of 22mm, but most people will run a 25-28mm tire to best take advantage of the Plus rim width.
