See why bigger (or wider) is better with the Ardennes Plus LT Clincher Wheelset.

For this wheelset, HED has taken their fantastic C2 rims and made them wider, 25mm wide to be exact. This extra width takes the characteristics that made the 23mm version great, even better. A wider rim means that a mounted tire gets more sidewall support and a larger contact patch, so corners can be taken more confidently. It also means that lower pressures can be run which helps smooth out road noise, making for a more comfortable ride. In addition to this widening, the new rims have been made tubeless ready so if you decide you want to make the jump to road tubeless, it will be an easy transition.

Backing these new rims up are HED's venerable Sonic hubs. Their aluminum construction is lightweight but durable, and the oversize bearings used provide a long lasting smooth ride. Lacing the whole set together are black bladed spokes for a little extra aerodynamic advantage. 18 spokes are laced radially in the front, while the rear uses 24 spokes in a two-cross pattern for a little extra strength and stiffness.

Available in either Shimano/SRAM 8/9/10/11 or Campagnolo 9/10/11 speed versions, the Ardennes Plus LT Clincher Wheelset is Black with reflective graphics. Claimed weight is 1535 g.

Fair Weather Wheels

I ride year around (190lbs). I was looking for a wider option to a Shimano Ultegra wheel set (which worked for years under these conditions). After 600 miles, half of which was in the rain, the rear free hub started to make a loud crackling noise. On inspection the free hub body was badly scored by my Shimano cassette. HED claims to have fixed the bearing issue. They did not fix the scoring. I was very disappointed with the wheels.

These wheels are great! I have been running tubeless and have about 500 miles on them so far and no flats. What a great feeling to go out for a ride and not worry about flats. These are so smooth and spin up very nice. A great light wheel set for the price, cant wait to get my cross tires on these and run these for CX.
