Jet RC4 Black Front Wheel
  • Jet RC4 Black Front Wheel

    An excellent choice for road races, gran fondos or windy days on the triathlon bike, the Jet RC4 Black front wheel seamlessly blends speed, control and comfort. The construction of the rim sees aluminium used as the main structure and a carbon skin used to form the patented 46mm deep aero profile. Utilising this hybrid format grants drag reduction and low weight without sacrificing strength and safety.

     

    HED’s Turbine technology textures and black anodises the braking surface to reduce stopping distances by 25% in the dry and up to 70% in the wet compared to all carbon clincher rim brake wheels. What’s more, these stopping distances are improved without risking overheating and clincher tyre blow-outs.

     

    An internal rim width of 21mm affords excellent support to tyre sidewalls, reducing their rolling resistance and improving compliance at lower inflation pressures. Additionally, the hooked inner rim structure allows the rider to choose between the fastest tubeless-ready or standard clincher tyres.

     

    The build is completed with a slick Sonic Pro hub and Sapim CX-Ray spokes.

    • Attention

      The anodised surface on Black wheels is a formulation that is harder than the cosmetic coating on many anodised aluminium rims.  

      With some forethought and minimal maintenance on the rider’s part it will last a long time so please take note of the following points:

       

      1) Use of clean rubber brake pads will result in the longest life of the black surface. 

       

      2) Embedded rocks and road grit will wear the anodising much faster than rubber brake compound.  Be advised that wet and/or dirty road surfaces will contaminate brake pads.  The road grit in badly contaminated pads will wear the black surface. 

       

      3) If your rides are regularly on wet and/or dirty roads the hard anodised surface on the Black rims will have a shorter life than it would in dry conditions.
