The Jet Plus 6/9 is perhaps the greatest combination available for efforts against the clock, whether in TT's or triathlon. This wheelset pairs our 60mm deep Jet 6 Plus front wheel with our Jet 9 Plus, 90mm deep rear wheel. The Jet 6 at the front offers tremendous aerodynamic performance but it's 60mm deep rim profile allows it to be ultimately stable, even when the wind starts to blow. The Jet 9 at the back, with it's huge 90mm deep profile is an aerodynamic monster. For average racing speed under 27mph this is arguable the quickest wheel we make. Lighter and more stable than a disc wheel the Jet 9 provides all the speed required on flat to rolling courses ensuring a P.B. is always in reach.
Wide and Aero
The rim is at the heart of these wheels and they feature our “hybrid” Plus rim format. This format utilises our wide aluminium plus rim as the “base” component to which a UD carbon aerodynamically tuned “skin” is expertly bonded.
The 25mm wide aluminium part of the rim is designed to optimise clincher tyre use to unprecedented levels and is basically the same that we use within our Ardennes Plus range of wheels. By widening the rim-to-tyre interface the tyre “sits” in a much superior fashion altering its cross sectional profile and increasing sidewall stability. This alters the tyre-to-road “footprint” making it shorter but wider with resulting lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip being experienced by the rider. The altered tyre profile then affords more internal volume which, in turn, promotes advanced levels of comfort
This aluminum “base” rim then receives our UD carbon “skin” to form the aerodynamic profile. This profile is tuned and sculpted via our “Stability Control Technology” (SCT). This allows the wheels to perform from an aerodynamic standpoint all the while handling like a much shallower wheel. The result is that our Jet 6/9 Plus can be used without debate in time trials, triathlons or rolling road races when unadulterated speed is required.
Slick rolling, super power transfer
These rims then roll around our own “Sonic” hubset. Featuring super grade stainless bearings these hubs also feature oversized axels. A 12mm diameter axel at the front and a 15mm diameter at the rear reduces peak forces on the bearing race circumference, improving rolling performance and increasing bearing life to previously unheard of levels. Full Shimano/SRAM & Campagnolo compatibility is offered as standard before a maintenance friendly arrangement allows servicing via the use of two simple 5mm allen keys.
Supreme aerodynamics and power transfer are then added with the use of Sapim CX-Ray spokes. The front wheel exhibits eighteen spokes, laced in a radial pattern, affording even more drag reduction to an already slippery configuration while the rear wheel utilises 24 spokes, built in a 2-cross pattern. This pattern ensures maximum rear wheel stiffness and efficiency even during all out sprints or hard uphill efforts but also helps to normalise spoke tensions whether drive or non-drive.
The full wheelset weight is 1797g before the package is completed with our own quick release skewers, valve extenders and tubeless compatible, airtight rim tape.
