Ex-Pro Team Vanquish RC6 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 cycling teams. This wheelset was a spare for the team, so has been transported to and from races such as the Tour de France, the Giro d'Italia and Paris-Roubaix, but was unused. 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.

Ideal for punchy parcours, solo breaks or efforts against the clock, the Vanquish RC6 Pro wheels are a rouleurs dream. The premium-grade, 110GSM carbon material used for the rims is unique to HED and guarantees low weight, responsiveness and strength in equal measures. What’s more, the rims are entirely handmade in HED’s own Minnesota based factory, ensuring impeccable quality control.
The carbon material is formed into a 61mm deep, HED patented rim profile, affording industry-leading drag reduction and crosswind stability. Additionally, the extra-wide, 21mm internal rim measurement grants extra sidewall support to tubeless-ready or standard clincher tyres, helping them realise lower rolling resistance, increased comfort and improved traction at lower inflation pressures.
The rims spin around top-of-the-range Sonic Pro hubs, and the rear freehub body features a five-pawl, 45 ratchet construction to quicken engagement when accelerating away from corners. The build is completed with Sapim CX-Ray spokes laced into laterally stiff, reliable, two-cross lacing patterns front and rear.
