  • Ex-Pro Team Vanquish RC6.8 Pro Disc Brake Wheelset

    Brand New / 1 Available / Save £600 / 5-year warranty

     

    A brand new 2022 model year wheelset that has been returned to us from one of our professional triathletes. This wheelset was an unused spare for the rider, so has been transported to and from numerous professional Ironman and triathlon races. The wheelset has been completely inspected and safety checked in our UK-based wheel workshop and comes complete with the standard HED 5-year warranty. Freehub options for Shimano or SRAM XDR gears are available, as brand new freehubs can be easily swapped by us prior to shipping.

    The HED Vanquish RC6.8 Pro wheelset is a triathlete's dream that amalgamates nearly 40 years of aerodynamic design experience to guarantee the fastest and smoothest ride when hunting PBs and podiums.

     

    The rims are handmade in HED's Minnesota based facility from their finest 110 GSM carbon fibre to guarantee a responsive and lively ride whatever the course topography. A mismatched rim depth combination sees a 61mm deep profile at the front and an 84mm deep profile at the rear to offer a potent blend of drag reduction, speed and crosswind stability in all riding conditions; ideal for fast bike legs, even when fatigued after the run. Both rims integrate a 21mm internal width to ensure tubeless-ready or standard clincher tyres perform more efficiently, even on rougher road surfaces.

     

    The rims rotate around smooth-spinning hubs with Center Lock disc brake rotor interfaces for weight reduction and guaranteed brake control. The rear hub utilises a 5-pawl, 45-tooth set-up, allowing near-instant power transfer when accelerating away from corners. The wheels are linked together via top-of-the-range Sapim CX-Ray spokes arranged in relaible, stiff two-cross lacing patterns.
