Hed releases new tubeless-ready carbon road wheel, the Vanquish 6

Published October 9, 2017

ROSEVILLE, Minn. (BRAIN) — Hed Cycling's new Vanquish 6 wheel feature an all-new tubeless-ready carbon rim.

The rim has an external width of 30 millimeters, an internal 21 millimeter width, and 60mm depth. Hed said the disc-brake-specific rim profile optimizes tire shape and performance with modern tires – inlcuding large sizes used for gravel and cyclocross events.

Like other Hed carbon wheels, the Vanquish 6 rim is made fully in-house at Hed's Minnesota factory. The wheel is also hand finished and assembled there, with Hed's 545 Disc hub set – featuring compatibility with all major drivetrains and axle options.

Anne Hed, the CEO of Hed Cycling, said, "We couldn't be more excited about the Vanquish 6 launch. It's a great addition to our product line, and we're proud to have another revolutionary carbon rim made in our own factory. Our whole team is proud to see this wheel make it out on to customers' bikes!"

The wheel set retails for $2,500 and is available this month.
