Jet RC6 Black Rear Wheel
  • Jet RC6 Black Rear Wheel

    The Jet RC6 Black rear wheel is ideally suited to heavily undulating, rolling or flat parcours, whether on a solo breakaway in a road race or thundering along during the triathlon bike leg.

     

    The rim comprises a wind tunnel sculpted carbon section mated to an aluminium base component. By combining the two materials, the Jet RC6 Black ensures excellent drag reduction, low weight and guaranteed safety when braking hard on technical roads. Additionally, the aluminium braking surface is anodised and textured to reduce stopping distances by 25% in the dry and 70% in the wet compared to all carbon clincher rims.

     

    The rim profile is patented by HED, granting industry-leading aerodynamics and class-leading stability in windy conditions, while the 21mm wide internal rim format provides additional sidewall support to tubeless-ready or standard clincher tyres. With better-supported sidewalls, tyres can realise lower rolling resistance and heightened impact resilience at lower, comfort inducing inflation pressures.

     

    A Sonic Pro hub features ultra-smooth bearings, and the freehub has a five-pawl, 45-tooth configuration for rapid engagement under acceleration. The build is finished with Sapim CX-Ray spokes laced in a two-cross pattern at the rear.

    • 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.
