The Jet 4 bridges the gap between race day and everyday. This high performance clincher achieves outstanding aerodynamics while maintaining an impressive weight, outstanding durability and reliable braking performance.
At 45mm deep, the Jet 4's 1K carbon aero section is the secret to keeping the weight down while still offering a serious wind cheating advantage. The scandium C2 outer rim increases the wheel's overall durability and dramatically improves braking performance over full carbon designs.
To further aerodynamic efficiency, HED's C2 rim features extra wide 23mm rim bed which reduces drag when paired with a 23mm wide tire. A special proprietary shaping process called Stability Control Technology dramatically improves the wheel's handling in crosswinds for a buffet-free ride.
The Flame Rouge wheels use HED's exclusive Sonic FR rear hub featuring a full alloy shell. A carbon fiber cap covers an integrated grease port for easy maintenance of the cartridge bearings, while a 15mm oversized axle and extra-wide flange spacing reduces spoke flex and improve overall stiffness. As a final touch, Titanium freehub body hardware shaves a few additional grams.
24 ultra-light Sapim CX Ray bladed spokes are laced 2x on the drive and non-drive side to further laterally rigidity, weight reduction and efficiency.
The claimed weight for the Jet 4 Flame Rouge Clincher Rear Wheel is 920 grams. The minimum recommended tire width is 22mm. 700c. Black rim with Silver spokes/hub flanges. Shimano/SRAM 8/9/10/11 and Campagnolo 9/10/11 compatible versions are available.
Note: This wheel is sold individually. Because many riders prefer wheelsets with non-matching rim depths, a front wheel must be purchased separately. If you would like to pair this wheel with a front wheel that is not currently listed online, please contact us for specific availability.
