DISC SWAP UPGRADE SERVICE
GET UP TO 40% OFF A NEW DISC BRAKE WHEELSET BY TRADING IN YOUR OLD WHEELS
With the disc brake movement really taking hold more and more road bikes are now being designed with disc brakes as standard. Disc brakes obviously offer more powerful, and finer modulated braking but also allow frame and wheel manufacturers to tweak designs to promote less rolling resistance, increased comfort and superior responsiveness into a bike.
The industry is travelling in the disc brake direction and is doing so at a rapid pace. Consequently a lot of you will have a great pair of HED wheels in the rim brake variety that have been, or will, be rendered obsolete if and when you buy a new road bike with disc brakes.
So, to help counter this, we're introducing our "Disc Swap" program. This program has been designed to make your transition across to disc brakes smoother and more cost effective allowing you to reap the riding awards that our disc brake wheels afford. It works by offering you money off a new pair of our disc brake wheels when you trade in your current rim brake HED wheels. Based on the age and quality of the wheels that you're trading in you can earn as much as 40% off the price of your chosen new disc brake wheelset. We can accept any HED wheels of any quality, even a damaged wheel has value.
HOW IT WORKS, STEP BY STEP
1) Download and complete the "Disc Swap" form that can be found below. This form will identify the new wheels that you would like.
2) Send your wheels to us along with the completed disc swap form. Our address is provided on the form.
3) When we receive your wheels we will evaluate and value them based on their age and condition.
4) We will contact you with the valuation. This value will be subtracted from the price of a new pair of our disc brake wheels.
5) Once payment is all completed we will send you your brand new wheelset
6) You receive your new wheels.
7) Ride, faster than ever!
The valuation that we offer for your wheels is final. We aren't trying to sound strict in this regard but with the experience that we have gathered during our 23 years of selling HED wheels we feel that we are qualified to offer what would be a very fair price.
There are a number of variables that affect the value of your wheels. Primarily these are condition and age but there are also smaller influences to consider. To name a few examples in this regard, a Shimano wheelset has more value than Campagnolo, an 11 speed wheelset holds a higher price than a 10 speed wheelset and black spokes demand more than silver. Because of the number of variables the only way that we can value your wheels is by seeing them here in our workshop. Unfortunately we can't give any valuations via emailed descriptions or photos. When valuing your wheels everything will be taken into account before offering you a price.
If you don't agree with the valuation that we have attached to your wheels once we have seen them then that's absolutely fine, we won't be offended at all. We can send your wheels back to you via courier for the small cost of £15.
The new wheels that you receive will, of course, have our full 5-year warranty associated to them. For full details on our warranty please visit our Warranty Page
If you change your mind once you have received your new wheels you have 7 days to return them to us for a refund as well as return of your old wheels. If you return them to us after 8 to 30 days of purchase you will receive your old wheels back plus credit to use with us for the amount that you have spent, minus £15 for shipping your original wheels back.
