HED Ardennes SL Wheelset
See for yourself why Ardennes SL is HED's best selling wheel.
The Ardennes SL uses the same C2 rim as the top-of-the-line Ardennes Flamme Rouge. With this 23 mm rim and 11%+ lower pressure than you would use in the same tires on a 19 mm rim, you get straighter (less floppy) sidewalls and a wider contact patch for improved (read, faster) cornering. The C2 alloyed rims are lighter, stronger, and stiffer than unalloyed models.
The front wheel, weighing in at only 632 g, is built on HED's Carbon FR Sonic hub with 18 Sapim CX-Ray black bladed spokes. The rear wheel, weighing in at 817 g, has 24 Sapim CX-Ray black bladed spokes laced in a pattern designed to enhance power transmission and lateral stiffness.
