Ardennes Black takes the revolutionary Turbine Braking Technology of the Jet Black and applies it to our 25mm-wide Ardennes Plus clincher. Translation? 25% shorter stopping distances in dry conditions, and 70% shorter stopping distances in wet conditions. Additionally, the consistency of stopping distances has improved by nearly a factor of five. That's not a typo.
Like all Ardennes Plus wheels, they're designed for maximum ride quality, rolling speed, stiffness, and tubeless compatibility.
The Ardennes Black replaces the Ardennes Plus FR, making it the top choice in the Ardennes line. Equipped with new black Sonic hubs, it's time to see and feel the benefits of True Speed.
- For all types of bicycle wheels, a hard strike on the rim is likely to result in rim damage. At the point of impact, an aluminum rim will dent, and a carbon rim may delaminate. With any such damage to a Hed wheel, our lifetime crash replacement policy enables the original owner to repair or replace the wheel at substantial savings.
- Tire pressure = 100psi MAX
- You MUST use brand new brake pads when switching to Ardennes and Jet Black wheels. Old pads may contain metal flakes that can damage the rim finish.
