HED Ardennes

Editor's Review
Do you think this product should be reviewed?

The final 1000 meters leading to the finish line at the Tour there is a red pennant marking the last kilometer. At the Giro, riders hit the Ultimo Kilometro. When the race gets to the Flamme Rouge, nothing is held back. The sprinters trains are at full speed, or the breakaway riders are eying each other tensely, or the climbers are grimacing as they struggle for the valuable seconds that could put them on the top step. The Flamme Rouge marks the point where you give it everything.
It marks the same thing for HED. Flamme Rouge wheels are the ultimate. If it can save weight or save watts, we use it.
Flamme Rouge Sonic hubs are built to the same exacting tolerances as regular sonics, but save weight with a carbon hub shell. Ti skewers are lighter than stock steel ones. The C2 alloyed rims on FR wheels are lighter, stronger, and stiffer than unalloyed models.
The closing meters of the race are where everything counts; Flamme Rouge wheels are built for one thing only. They are built to win.

With C2 rims, high quality steel bearings, titanium skewer, new rear wheel lacing pattern, and a new grease port rear hub, the Ardennes FR are the finest low profile wheels we have built to date.
