Vanquish RC6 Pro Rear Wheel
  • Vanquish RC6 Pro Rear Wheel

    Ideal for punchy parcours, solo breaks or efforts against the clock, the Vanquish RC6 Pro wheels are a rouleurs dream. The premium-grade, 110GSM carbon material used for the rims is unique to HED and guarantees low weight, responsiveness and strength in equal measures. What’s more, the rims are entirely handmade in HED’s own Minnesota based factory, ensuring impeccable quality control.


    The carbon material is formed into a 61mm deep, HED patented rim profile, affording industry-leading drag reduction and crosswind stability. Additionally, the extra-wide, 21mm internal rim measurement grants extra sidewall support to tubeless-ready or standard clincher tyres, helping them realise lower rolling resistance, increased comfort and improved traction at lower inflation pressures.


    The rim spins around a top-of-the-range Sonic Pro hub, and the rear freehub body features a five-pawl, 45 ratchet construction to quicken engagement when accelerating away from corners. The build is completed with Sapim CX-Ray spokes laced into a laterally stiff, reliable, two-cross lacing pattern.
