HED Belgium + wheelset stiff wide and high performing.

Posted by Malcolm Borg

HED make the only 25mm wide alloy rim brake hoop on the market. 25mm deep too. Wider rims are simply better in every way, better looking too, to my eyes.

 

This build is done with sapim race (DS rear) and laser spokes (front and NDS rear) in 24H/28H drilling with Miche Primato hubs. Other hubs can be used of course. Weight 1690g in this form. So the only weight saving possible is from the hubs and using alloy nipples (and laser spokes DS). CX-rays could be used too.

 

so these wheels are very stiff, aero and offer great handling and ride comfort. Possibly everything you could ask for from a wheelset. Suitable for rider up to around 95kg due to there stiffness.
