Ardennes RA Performance Disc Brake Wheelset
  • Ardennes RA Performance Disc Brake Wheelset

    When the parcours is challenging, the weather is foul, or the roads are rough, the Ardennes RA Performance Disc Brake wheelset is the ideal pick. The light alloy rims afford a lively ride, but their robustness means they handle the most rutted, potholed roads with aplomb. Additionally, the rims’ 21mm internal measurement better supports tubeless-ready and standard clincher tyres, resulting in lower rolling resistance, heightened grip and markedly improved comfort at lower inflation pressures.

     

    HED designed GP Performance hubs spin smoothly but are hard wearing and are joined to the rims via reliable Sapim Sprint spokes laced in two-cross patterns for extra stiffness and strength.
