HED Raptor 29 MTB Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset


HED’s 35 years of innovation can now be found in the ultimate cross-country wheelset. The HED Raptor 29 DNA wheels are a perfect storm of durability, lightweight, and science. Built for racing and ready to pick up what you’re putting down, the new Raptor 29 DNA wheels utilize HED’s patent-pending DNA profile and CNC drilling technology. At the heart of the Raptor 29 DNA wheels is HED’s patent-pending Dual-axis Nipple Alignment (DNA) rim profile. The DNA profile and CNC spoke drilling aligns the spoke bed and hole to match the four spoke angles – pulling, pushing, left and right – that occur in a wheel. With the nipple aligned to the spoke angle, the spoke path is direct; neither uneven strain on the nipple nor spokes bending for mismatched angles occurs. The design allows HED to create a lighter and stronger rim with an even and consistent interface around the entire circumference. The Raptor 29 DNA rims feature a 25mm internal/31mm external width – ideal for use with 2” – 2.5” tires. The 380-gram rims are constructed with 148 hand-laid sheets of carbon inside HED’s Minnesota facility. For complete wheels, the tubeless-ready clincher rims are laced with 28 Sapim Laser spokes to HED Brick House Hubs.
