Jet RC9 Performance Front Wheel
  • Jet RC9 Performance Front Wheel

    When podium places are up for grabs in triathlons or when inter-club TT grudge matches need to be settled, the Jet RC9 Performance front wheel is undoubtedly the fastest option. The hybrid rim construction sees a carbon skin expertly bonded to an aluminium structural section, and by blending these materials, the finest ride quality is realised. The carbon skin creates a 90mm HED patented profile that scythes through the wind with minimal resistance, while the aluminium section provides strength and reliable, safe braking that all-carbon clincher rims can’t match.

     

    Speed-merchants will be satisfied by the rim’s tubeless-ready or standard clincher tyre compatibility that permits a broad choice from the fastest rubber available. Whatever the tyre choice, the 21mm internal rim measurement heightens tyre sidewall support, leading to lower rolling resistance and improved comfort at lower inflation pressures.

     

    An in-house designed Sonic Pro hub minimises rotational friction, and Sapim CX-Ray spokes bring the build together, further slashing drag thanks to their bladed profile.
