Vanquish RCD Pro Rear Disc Wheel
  • Vanquish RCD Pro Rear Disc Wheel

    Drawing upon nearly 40-years of disc wheel making experience, HED have used all their knowledge to ensure that the Vanquish RCD is their fastest ever rear wheel. The “skeletal” construction sees lightweight carbon sides intricately bonded onto a regular spoked wheel, with this format affording an irregular, bulged profile that dramatically reduces drag across all yaw angles. Additionally, the “skeletal” build naturally affords extra vertical compliance for smoother, more efficient pedalling.

     

    The rim is realised in premium-grade 110GSM carbon that helps keep the total disc weight down to just 1135g while maintaining excellent lateral stiffness under high power efforts. The rim also possesses a broad, 21mm wide internal measurement to better support the sidewalls of tubeless-ready or standard clincher tyres. This extra support helps slash rolling resistance and improves impact resilience when using comfort-inducing lower tyre inflation pressures.

     

    At the centre of the wheel, the Sonic Pro hub features silky smooth bearings and utilises a 5-pawl, 45-tooth system that’s easy to maintain, reduces frictional resistance when freewheeling and provides instant engagement when accelerating away from corners and roundabouts.
