HED Ardennes Plus BLACK Clincher Wheelset

The Ardennes Plus Black Clincher Wheelset uses HED's exclusive Turbine Braking Technology to significantly shorten braking distances. The blacked out look is the result of a specially machined and anodized directional brake track that makes for 25% shorter stops in the dry and 70% shorter stops in the wet.

At 24.5 mm deep with an external rim width of 25 mm making an internal width of 20.7 mm, these wheels make a great all-round choice for a race/training clincher. The wide rim makes full use of tires for optimum traction and ride comfort, while also letting them create a more aero profile that's in-line with the rest of the rim.

18 Sapim CX Ray spokes in the front and 24 in the back are laced to black HED Sonic hubs for smooth, reliable performance, and the claimed wheelset weight is just 1430 g.

Features:

  • C2 Alloy rims
  • 24.5mm rim depth
  • Turbine Braking Technology
  • Tubeless-ready
  • Includes titanium skewers and tubeless rim tape.

  • FREE Cassette Installation - Order a cassette along with a wheelset and we can install the cassette for free. Cassette installation requires special tools that not all our customers have.

    This wheel set is my best of 3 brands for mounting Schwalbe tubeless. Ardennes must be a couple mm smaller than R brand wheels.

    I have had a side puncture flat 25 miles into a ride and with thumbs and one spoon removed a bead and put a tube in like old days.

    that isn't the case with 2 other tubeless wheel sets I have. I threw a set of early tubeless wheels in trash for there was no hope for

    a field fix and even a heated garage tire mounting was miserable. These wheels are light , sturdy , fast and you can fix flats.

    I haven't used these wheels on the road yet, but I can say the tubeless Schwalbe Pro One tires mount very easy and the new hubs look like a big improvement. They weigh about 10 grams less than the advertised 1430 grams which is very light. It also is amazing to see a manufacturer's weight claim accurate.

    I have used the Ardennes SL Plus, set up tubeless and they are very, very, nice wheels.

    The 23 mm Schwalbe Pro Ones measure 26 mm on these rims, and the 25 mm measure 28.5 .

    I am anxious to try out this Black turbine brake track, I am expecting good results and Andy at Hed has been a very good person to deal with if questions need to be addressed.

    I use this wheel for my everyday riding. I use it to do training on the hills. It climbs like nothing would stop it. It responses quickly. the width of the rims help you descentconering with super confident. Just point and go.

    Excellent braking wheel!

    The Pros for this wheel Great looks, terrific braking, smooth rolling, made to accommodate 25c or 28c tires.

    The Cons Rim tape provided for use with tubeless tires is also a MUST USE for tires with tubes to prevent tubes from being cut by spoke holes in the rim. Very difficult to mount tires with tubes (I haven't tried tubeless tires yet).
