HED Vanquish RC6 Performance Carbon Wheelset
Designed by the same minds and made by the same hands that are responsible for the Vanquish RC Pro wheel series, the Performance version of HED's Vanquish wheels are primed and ready to race.
The hooked 21mm (internal) rim bed is tubeless-ready. HED's GP disc brake hubs and Sapim's Sprint spokes control the wheel's cost but not their speed. Like the original Vanquish, the Performance charts not just very low drag, but also very similar drag numbers with tires ranging from 23-28mm tires.
Ditch tire width anxiety and ride fast on any road surface! Like our other wheels, the all-carbon Vanquish RC Performance Rim is manufactured from start to finish in the USA.
The shape is all-new, with a huge 30mm to 30.6mm external width (21mm internal width). This results in superb aerodynamic performance with 23-28mm tires. If gravel and endurance riding are your thing, the Vanquish will optimize the shape, ride quality, and even aerodynamics of your wide gravel and cyclocross tires.
Please note that the Vanquish is available in a disc brake model ONLY. Why, you ask?
Two reasons: 1) Carbon rims do not cool as efficiently as alloy rims. The extreme heating and cooling cycles of an all-carbon rim brake clincher rim compromises the structural integrity of the inner tube and can cause a tire casing to soften or even melt – a clear safety risk. 2) Removing the rim brake from the equation allowed us to make a new rim profile that simply wouldn't fit inside of a rim brake. It's a true disc-brake-specific rim, unencumbered by rim brake constraints.
