With disc brakes now well and truly ensconced within the world of road bikes we naturally offer a wide selection of our wheels in a disc brake option. Our disc brake range takes our industry leading aerodynamic rims and couples these with the increased performance of a disc brake to offer the fastest combination across any course or route. From hard working all rounder through to aero thoroughbred be sure that we have the wheelset for your disc brake bike.
The Jet 6 Plus Disc Brake wheelset is, quite simply, performance personified. With a rim depth of 60mm that has a tuned profile to lower drag across any wind angle the Jet 6 Plus Disc Brake is a stalwart to riders when they request unprecedented levels of drag reduction and sublime handling. No matter the genre of aerodynamic application the Jet 6 will perform, pigeonholing it as one of those “fit and forget” components.
Quick rolling, super aero & stealthy with disc brake power and modulation
The rim is at the heart of this wheel and it features our “hybrid” construction technology. This technology mates our aluminium “Plus” rim with our aero refined UD carbon “skin” to offer unbelievable performance in conjunction with the new breed of wider, quicker, clincher and tubeless tyres.
Our super wide aluminum “Plus” rim is designed to optimise clincher and tubeless tyre use to unprecedented levels. The internal measurement is a huge 21mm and by widening this 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 promotes advanced levels of comfort via much lower tyre pressures.
A UD carbon aero “skin” is then bonded expertly to this aluminium “base” rim. This 60mm, tuned and sculpted carbon profile allows the Jet 6 to perform, aerodynamically speaking, better than most of our competitors offerings of 80mm depth and above all the while handling like a much shallower wheel. This carbon profile is manipulated via our “Stablity Control Technology” or SCT for short. This technology ensures that, for any given rim depth, the wheel will exhibit the best possible drag reduction and cross wind stability across a huge range of wind angles.
Better braking, super stealthy look
This wheelset is completed with a stealthy look and increased braking performance afforded naturally via disc brakes. As already stated, the rim itself is a carbon/alloy hybrid with the alloy tyre bed bonded expertly on to the carbon aero "skin". The alloy section of this rim is anodised to give a seamless all black transition from carbon to alloy lending an "en vogue" sultry aesthetic.
The rims then spin around our "545" Disc Brake hub set. This hubset features ABEC 5 hi-grade stainless bearings to minimise friction to a minimum all the while offering a good level of longevity. Our "545" disc hubs come as stock with either 12mm or 15mm thru axles at the front and 12mm at the rear. We also have a conversion available separately for standard quick release skewers allowing complete compatibility with any disc brake bike. Shimano/SRAM and Campagnolo compatibility is then offered ensuring that any bike set up is catered for before a 5 pawl, 46 tooth freehub affords rapid, efficient drive engagement.
Efficient build, adapted for disc brakes
Stiffness and strength is integrated in to the wheelset with Sapim CX-Ray spokes, hand laced and trued. Both front and rear wheels utilise 24 spokes built in a 2-cross pattern. This pattern ensures maximum wheel stiffness and efficiency even during all out sprints or hard uphill efforts but also copes admirably with the extra forces generated on the hubs and spokes by the improved braking performance of disc brakes.
The package is completed with our valve extenders and tubeless compatible, airtight rim tape.
