The HED Ardennes Plus SL Rear Wheel has a 25mm wide rim for a more stable ride, plus it gives you the ability to run lower pressures, making it a great choice for racing and training over cobbles, gravel and dirt. This wider rim extends the benefits of the 23mm wide C2 technology by boosting cornering grip, comfort and rolling speed. It allows the tire casing to spread out and make larger contact patch with the ground, increasing speed over every surface and rolls silky smooth over pavement. It also increases air volume, so tires can be run at lower pressures to smooth out bumps in the road. The wider platform supports the tire sidewall for cornering confidence and increases lateral stiffness and drivetrain efficiency. Finally, it's tubeless ready for fewer flats and more control. An excellent balance of performance and do-it-all versatility, the HED Ardennes Plus SL is built for the racer on a budget.
