The Ardennes Plus Black Clincher Wheelset uses HED's exclusive Turbine Braking Technology to significantly shorten braking distances. The blacked out look is the result of a specially machined and anodized directional brake track that makes for 25% shorter stops in the dry and 70% shorter stops in the wet.

At 24.5 mm deep with an external rim width of 25 mm making an internal width of 20.7 mm, these wheels make a great all-round choice for a race / training clincher. The wide rim makes full use of tires for optimum traction and ride comfort, while also letting them create a more aero profile that's in-line with the rest of the rim. 18 Sapim CX Ray spokes in the front and 24 in the back are laced to black HED Sonic hubs for smooth, reliable performance, and the claimed wheelset weight is just 1430 g.

Tubeless compatible. Includes titanium skewers and tubeless rim tape.

Please note: This product ships signature required.

Rim Diameter: 622

Well built , nice looking wheelset.

I haven't used these wheels on the road yet, but I can say the tubeless Schwalbe Pro One tires mount very easy and the new hubs look like a big improvement. They weigh about 10 grams less than the advertised 1430 grams which is very light. It also is amazing to see a manufacturer's weight claim accurate.

I have used the Ardennes SL Plus, set up tubeless and they are very, very, nice wheels.

The 23 mm Schwalbe Pro Ones measure 26 mm on these rims, and the 25 mm measure 28.5 .

I am anxious to try out this Black turbine brake track, I am expecting good results and Andy at Hed has been a very good person to deal with if questions need to be addressed.

Excellent braking wheel!

The Pros for this wheel Great looks, terrific braking, smooth rolling, made to accommodate 25c or 28c tires.

The Cons Rim tape provided for use with tubeless tires is also a MUST USE for tires with tubes to prevent tubes from being cut by spoke holes in the rim. Very difficult to mount tires with tubes (I haven't tried tubeless tires yet).
