HED Jet 9 Rear Wheel
What makes the HED Jet 9 so much better than its predecessor? The HED Jet 9 wheel is more aero, it has lower rolling resistance, it corners and handles better, and it more comfortable. All of this increases speed and all is in part to the wider C2 rim.90mm rim profile
Wider, C2 platform rims
Black bladed spokes

Let's look at the C2 rim itself. By exacting the CAD design the rim can be machined to weigh no more than the most 19mm rims. The additional width actually makes the C2 rim stiffer laterally than a 19mm version.
With a better rim, the HED Jet C2 wheels are faster. They are made for 23mm tires. Larger tires have lower rolling resistance than smaller versions. They put more rubber on the road for better cornering traction. They require less pressure to support the same load as a 19mm tire. 23mm tires are superior with the C2 rim. With the C2 rim, tire width matches rim width, so the wheel is more aero. The tire sidewalls are part of the aero shape of the entire wheel, they don’t bulge over the brake track like they do on a 19mm rim. The same straightened sidewalls support the tire better in hard cornering and out of the saddle efforts, so the complete tire is more rigid and less squirmy. Stiffer is more efficient than squirmy, and more efficient is faster.
