New HED Ardennes Tubeless & FR Tubular Disc Brake Road Wheels
HED just popped out a little blurb on their new Ardennes FR tubular disc brake wheels and re-announced the Ardennes+ super wide rims.
The Ardennes FR, above, are purpose built for wider 25-40mm tires running lower tire pressure. There’s no brake track, so they’re disc specific, which makes them a bit lighter at the outer rotating edge, too. The extra width of the 23.5mm wide rim gives plenty of room to glue the tire and the rounded edges should help prevent pinch flats.
The Ardennes+ were spotted at NAHBS in both disc and rim brake options. They’re coming in with 25mm widths and are tubeless ready. Photo after the break…
