HED JET 6+ = performance personified. With a rim depth of 60mm and a drag reducing profile, the Jet 6 Plus will perform, no matter the genre of aerodynamic application; pigeonholing it as one of those 'fit and forget' components.
Pro and amateur riders alike utilise the Jet 6 Plus as their 'go to' wheelset for triathlons, while Time Trial specialists make devastating use of it. Sportive riders will bludgeon their way along rolling routes while weekend warriors will look great at the café stop as they wait for their riding buddies, previously dropped during the final 'pre-coffee' surge.
The 25mm wide aluminium part of the rim is designed to optimise clincher tyre use to unprecedented levels and is basically the same that we use within our Ardennes Plus range of wheels. By widening the rim-to-tyre interface the tyre “sits” in a superior fashion altering its cross sectional profile and increasing sidewall stability. This alters the tyre-to-road 'footprint' making it shorter but wider with resulting lower rolling resistance and increased cornering grip being experienced by the rider. The altered tyre profile then affords more internal volume which, in turn, promotes advanced levels of comfort
This aluminum 'base' rim receives HED's UD carbon 'skin'. This 60mm profile is tuned and sculpted via HED 'Stability Control Technology' (SCT). This allows the Jet 6 Plus to perform, aerodynamically speaking, better than most competitors offerings of 80mm depth and above all the while handling like a much shallower wheel. The result is that the Jet 6 Plus can be used without debate in time trials, triathlons or rolling road races and sportives, such is its versatility.
These rims then roll around HED's 'Sonic' hubset. Featuring super grade stainless bearings these hubs also feature oversized axels. A 12mm diameter axel at the front and a 15mm diameter at the rear reduces peak forces on the bearing race circumference, improving rolling performance and increasing bearing life to previously unheard of levels.
