The Hed Ardennes line has taken the cycling world by the horns, first with our groundbreaking 23mm-wide C2 rim, and then again with our 25m-wide Plus rim. They're our most popular wheels, and have helped to define Hed as a company.
For 2016, our goal was to bring the award-winning Ardennes Plus technology to even wider audience. The result is our brand new Ardennes Plus GP.
The Ardennes Plus GP Disc Brake starts with the same recipe as our other Ardennes Plus wheels: Our proprietary 25mm-wide aluminum clincher rim. It's tubeless-compatible, and offers increased tire volume, more control, and buttery ride quality. To that, we add a new reliable disc brake hub, round steel spokes, and alloy nipples. We've never had a more competitive price, at $700 per pair.
The Ardennes Plus GP Disc Brake comes stock with a 12mm front thru axle, and the rear hub has a 12x142mm thru axle. A conversion kit for 15mm front or quick release skewers(ETA May 2017) is sold separately.
*Ardennes SL and LT Plus Disc Brake wheels are approved for XC mountain bike use.
1. For all types of bicycle wheels, a hard strike on the rim is likely to result in rim damage. At the point of impact, an aluminum rim will dent, and a carbon rim may delaminate. With any such damage to a Hed wheel, our lifetime crash replacement policy enables the original owner to repair or replace the wheel at substantial savings.
2. Tire pressure = 90psi MAX (clincher)
