Vanquish RC6 Performance Rear Wheel
  • Vanquish RC6 Performance Rear Wheel

    Back in stock: Monday 11th July 2022


    Perfectly suiting the marauding solo break specialist or triathlon courses with a good dose of climbing, the Vanquish RC6 Performance rear wheel seamlessly blends speed, control and style while remaining cost-effective.


    The full carbon rim is handmade at HED’s headquarters in Minnesota from a high grade 150 GSM carbon material, ensuring exceptional lateral stiffness for big power efforts, reduced weight and increased strength. The carbon is formed into a HED patented, wind tunnel sculpted, 61mm deep rim profile that slices through the air and reduces the effect of gusts when navigating exposed roads. Additionally, the rim’s 21mm internal measurement increases tyre sidewall support, lowers rolling resistance and improves impact resistance when using energy-saving decreased inflation pressures. The inner rim format is hooked, permitting the rider a choice between the fastest tubeless-ready or standard clincher tyres.


    HED’s in-house designed GP Performance hubs spin smoothly, accept Center Lock disc brake rotors and are linked to the rims via Sapim CX-Sprint spokes arranged in two-cross lacing patterns, front and rear.
