HED Ardennes Plus BLACK

The HED Ardennes Plus Black wheelset is a lightweight and stealthy addition to any bike. Their black braking surfaces create a solid dark finish to the tire edge, resulting in a clean, stealthy look without the usual jarring silver stripe found on most aluminum rim braking surfaces. That rim surface isn't just for looks though; HED designed them with its Turbine Braking Technology for huge increases in braking performance in both wet and dry conditions compared to standard aluminum rims. The Plus Blacks build on HED's previous Ardennes Plus FR with a wide, lightweight rim that provides a solid, smooth ride. They also carry over the low spoke count of the Plus FRs for weight savings without impacting performance. These wheels are smooth enough for any road and tough enough to handle gravel or cyclocross without missing a beat. The Ardennes Plus Blacks can be set up with traditional clincher tires and tubes and are tubeless-ready for riders looking to lose the tube weight and work with a wider range of tire pressure options. HED recommends using new brake pads with the Ardennes Plus Black rims, as any metal shavings used pads may have picked up from other rims could damage the Black rim finish.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
