HED Adds Disc Brake Road Wheels, Introduces Made-in-USA Vanquish Aero Clinchers
HED’s Stinger 5 carbon tubular and Ardennes alloy tubulars and clinchers will now have a disc brake hub option. They teased these a while back, but now they’re in stock and shipping. Both use CenterLock hubs and can be had with Campy or Shimano/SRAM freehub bodies.
Stinger Disc is $2,100 and Ardennes are $1,300. Both use the same rim as their standard models, so you could run calipers if you need to…
The Stingers come in at a claimed 765g and 864g. The Ardennes tubular is 721g and 839g, expect the clinchers to be slightly heavier.
The Vanquish is an all-new aero clincher wheelset that uses a 60mm deep carbon rim that’s made in-house in Minnesota. It uses the Stinger profile but gets a little higher quality carbon. Wheel weights are 670g and 873g, retail is $2,500.
Rim is nice and wide.
The alloy Ardennes LT gets a makeover with all black DT Swiss bladed spokes and HED’s black alloy hubs. Now, if they could just black out those rim logos…
