HED Vanquish RC4 Pro Disc Wheelset
The HED Vanquish RC4 Pro Disc Wheelset is HED's fastest wheel. Ever. For HED, that's saying something. It all begins with the patented, wind-tunnel decimating toroidal rim profile.
HED's proprietary Vanquish RC Pro rims are made by hand in Minnesota, U.S.A., and undergo an unprecedented level of quality control. The rim shape is all-new, with a huge 30mm external width (21mm internal width). This results in superb aerodynamic performance with 23-28mm tires, with drag numbers that dip below -300g. The Vanquish RC Pro's all-carbon rim construction makes it lighter, stronger, and faster than the competition. The 30mm external/21mm internal width and tubeless-ready tire bed has a hybrid spoked-carbon design, creating a stiff and efficient wheel for maximum power transfer.
NOTE: the Vanquish is only available in a disc brake model. Why, you ask? Two reasons: 1) Carbon rims do not cool as efficiently as alloy rims. The extreme heating and cooling cycles of an all-carbon rim brake clincher rim compromises the structural integrity of the inner tube and can cause a tire casing to soften or even melt – a clear safety risk. 2) Removing the rim brake from the equation allowed us to make a new rim profile that simply wouldn't fit inside of a rim brake. It's a true disc-brake-specific rim, unencumbered by rim brake constraints.
