Ardennes RA Pro Rim Brake Rear Wheel
  • Ardennes RA Pro Rim Brake Rear Wheel

    A venerable performer in any weather conditions, across any parcours, or over any road surface, the Ardennes RA Pro rim brake rear wheel seamlessly merges a lively performance with strength and safety.

     

    The 25mm deep alloy rim is lightweight to afford rapid acceleration and consistent climbing speeds, and its robustness allows it to handle even the most rutted of winter roads with consummate ease. The all silver braking surface offers powerful and predictable braking, even in the wet, while the 21mm internal rim width mates perfectly with tubeless-ready or standard clincher tyres and helps them perform with lower rolling resistance, heightened traction and elevated comfort.

     

    A durable HED Sonic Pro hub ensures the wheel spin ultra-smoothly, and the five-pawl, 45-ratchet freehub design gives rapid engagement under acceleration away from corners. The build is linked together via Sapim Sprint round spokes arranged in a two-cross pattern.
