In 2013 we released Plus rim technology. Using a 25mm external paired with a 21mm internal rim we found better aerodynamics, better lateral stiffness, better ride quality, better tire shaping, and better handling. In addition Plus rims allow for lower tire pressure, for even more comfort, control and rolling speed.
Stability Control Technology (SCT). Making a wheel that is fast while riding straight into the wind is simple, making one that is excellent in all wind conditions, is quite different. SCT is about how to tame the stability of a wheel in crosswind situations. The knowledge, design and technique involved in the SCT design is HED's most heavily guarded secret.
Turbine Brake Track
Starting with our 25mm-wide aluminum rim, we added special machining and anodizing, to result in a super clean all-black appearance and outstanding brake performance. With 25% shorter stopping distances in dry conditions, and 70% shorter stopping distances in wet conditions. Our all-black alloy rim give you all of the cool factor, and none of the safety compromises of rim brake carbon clinchers. No overheated rims. No tire and tube failures. Only Proven Speed.
Our Fat Lip rim design is meant to take a punch. With a reconstructed rim bead it offers a stronger rim with a lip you can feel for lower pressure rides to match the terrain you explore.
