Vanquish RC4 Performance Wheelset
  • Vanquish RC4 Performance Wheelset

    Offering an excellent performance-to-price ratio, the Vanquish RC4 Performance wheels use high grade 150 GSM carbon within the rims, keeping the weight low and heightening responsiveness when the rider lays down the watts. The HED patented 40mm rim profile is fine-tuned in the wind tunnel, markedly reducing drag and keeping stability high when the wind is gusting hard.


    Tubeless-ready and standard clincher tyres are catered for by the hooked rim format, while the 21mm internal rim width grants additional tyre sidewall support, resulting in lower rolling resistance and a plusher ride at lower inflation pressures. The rims are linked to Sonic Performance hubs via Sapim CX-Sprint spokes laced in reliable two-cross patterns. 


    The complete package offers tremendous versatility and benefits any performance-oriented rider looking for gains in road races, gran fondos or the most challenging group rides.
