HED's fastest ever front wheel, the Vanquish RC8 Pro has been created to crush PBs against the clock and for surging away from the peloton during day-long solo breakaways. The 84mm deep rim is realised via HED's patented profile, guaranteeing industry-leading drag reduction and the highest conceivable stability when the wind blows hard. The rim is handmade in Minnesota, USA, from the finest 110GSM carbon, resulting in an optimal stiffness to weight ratio, while the 21mm internal rim width helps tubeless-ready and standard clincher tyres perform with lower rolling resistance at comfort-inducing lower inflation pressures.
A HED Sonic Pro hub spins on ultra-smooth, durable bearings and is Center Lock disc rotor compatible to provide optimal braking power and control. Sapim CX-Ray spokes link the build together, and these are laced in reliable, torsionally stiff, two-cross lacing patterns, front and rear.
