Starting from our revolutionary 25mm-wide Jet Plus aluminum rim, we spent hundreds of hours testing and refining a new braking surface, called Turbine Braking Technology. With special machining and surface coating, the result a super clean all-black appearance and outstanding brake performance. Additionally, the consistency of stopping distances has improved by nearly a factor of five. That’s not a typo. Our 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.
By combining the lighter Jet 4 front and the more aerodynamic Jet 6 back, you grab the best of both worlds. Ideal for smaller riders who battle in cross winds or triathletes looking for a really fast combination wheelset.
1. We do NOT recommend hanging a bike equipped with Jet wheels from hooks – this can damage the carbon skin and will not be covered under warranty.
2. The coating on HED Black-series rim brake wheels is a formulation that is harder than the cosmetic coating on many aluminum rims. With some forethought and minimal maintenance on the rider’s part, it will last a long time. Use of clean rubber brake pads (intended for use with alloy rims) will result in the longest life of the Black surface. Road grit and rocks that become embedded in the brake pads will cause the coating to wear much faster and affect the rims’ appearance and life span. Be advised that wet and/or dirty road surfaces will contaminate your brake pads. Regularly inspecting, cleaning, and replacing your brake pads will help prolong rim life.
