First offered in 1987, the original Jet disc is updated for 2011 as the HED Jet Disc Wheel. Retaining the same basic construction and design, new knowledge accumulated through the years will be added to the HED. With the Jet Disc that features excellent aerodynamics, a hybrid construction is used.
Available in tubular or clincher, the HED’s C2 aluminum rim minimizes two Cs- aerodynamic resistance (Cda) and rolling resistance (Crr). The rim’s width enhanced the efficiency of air passing over the tire and the contact patch and support for the tire.
While nicely innovated, the 2011 HED Jet Disc Wheel still offers the reliable features the original version had. The wheel features a valve extender steel-shafted and a HED quick-release skewer. Fitting perfectly in the opening is the tested Silca crack pipe disc wheel adapter.
