Our standard HED Jet C2 rims set new benchmarks with regards to outright performance when they were released a few years ago in 2009. These wheels were ridden to time trial triumph in not only the Tour de France but also the World Time Trail Championships back in 2011. The base for these triumphs was built around two main performance traits: superior wheel aerodynamics and lower rolling resistance courtesy of our 23mm wide C2 rim platform and SCT (Stability Control Technology) rim profiles.
Now, for 2014, we have taken wheel design another step forward by increasing wheel width even further. By introducing our 25mm wide C2+ rim platform we have managed to increase raw wheel performance once again. Utilising an even wider rim than our standard C2 platform allows us to further improve the tyre to rim interface for improved aerodynamics. In addition to this, the new wider platform also allows for greater overall tyre volume and a larger contact patch which in turn leads to even lower rolling resistance, increased comfort and greater cornering grip. The final results are plain to see. Our new Jet 6 Plus wheelset with a 60mm deep rim now performs nearly as fast as our 90mm Standard Jet 9 wheelset!
Our Jet Plus range retains all of the time proven traits of our standard Jet line up. Ultimate, predictable braking is offered via an aluminium braking surface and lightweight, industry leading rim aerodynamics are afforded via our wind tunnel verified UD carbon SCT rim sections.
The Jet Plus range is available in 3 key rim depths allowing the rider to fine tune their choice based on riding requirements such as rider morphology, course topography, wind conditions and yaw angles and predicted rider speeds. The wheels available are the Jet Plus 4, the Jet Plus 6 and the Jet Plus 9 that feature 46mm, 60mm and 90mm rim depths respectively. All of these are based around our standard Sonic FR hubset and Sapim CX-Ray spokes for guaranteed, ultimate efficiency and overall riding experience.
