Looks Fast, Brakes Faster
Building on its revolutionary 25mm-wide Jet Plus aluminum rim, HED spent hundreds of hours testing and refining a new braking surface, called Turbine Braking Technology.
With special machining and anodizing, the result is a super clean all-black appearance and outstanding brake performance.
How great is it? How about 25% shorter stopping distances in dry conditions, or 70% shorter stopping distances in wet conditions.
Additionally, the consistency of stopping distances has improved by nearly a factor of five. That's not a typo.
HED's all-black alloy rim and carbon cap give you all of the cool factor and none of the safety compromises of rim brake carbon clinchers. No melted rims. No tire and tube failures - only true speed.

I've owned a pair for 5+ years. Stopped by the Hed factory and spoke to personnel for detailed information, and bought a set shortly afterward. The Hed tech recommended the RC6s vs the RC4s for overall speed, and they still are very controllable in crosswinds. My speeds increase when I ride this set of wheels. They handle great with the wider rims and corresponding wider tires (25mm usually). I love the stopping power of the rims-I use SwissStop BXP pads. People comment on the sound they make during riding, and also the turbine sound when stopping. Highly recommend.
