Speed and handling in one package.

By now you’ve likely read a thing or three about wide rims on the road. They round out the tire, they make the ride smoother, they’re more aero. HED pioneered that in the modern age, realizing that if it could smooth the transition between tire and rim, the air would in turn flow more smoothly. The Jet 5 Express Clinchers follow this paradigm, with a 23mm external rim width.

Additionally, at 54mm deep, and making use of a blunt-ish profile, they’re aerodynamically powerful but not at the expense of handling. In short, the Jet 5s will give you the speed gains typical of a 60mm-deep wheel with the handling capabilities of something more in the 30mm range.

  • Deep, toroidal rim shape for maximum aerodynamic efficiency
  • Wide, 23mm rim
  • 54mm deep

Great braking, great value

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The biggest trepidation I have with carbon clinchers is the brake surface. I HATE carbon braking surfaces. They've gotten much better in the last 5 years but they are still vastly inferior to an aluminum braking surface. Living here in Utah, I have to have confidence in my braking. This wheel is light, cheap, aero, and has fantastic braking. I've raced it, I've trained on it; and as a cat 1 roadie I have full confidence in this wheel. They're not as light as the lightest tubies and not as aero as the deepest dimpled wheelset; but they're half the price and 99% as good.

These are alloy rims with a carbon bonded fairing. That being said, any brake pad that works on an alloy wheel will work on these. I personally use Kool Stop Dura2 black brake pads as a cost effective and high performing pad. Hope this helps.
