The HED Ardennes Plus GP wheelset is at the cutting edge of design at an affordable price. The HED Ardennes line made headway with their 23mm-wide C2 rim. This was then enhanced with the Plus range which sported a 25mm wide rim which is a feature of the GP wheelset. The advantage of the 25mm rim is with mounting 25c tyres. Due to the nature of airflow within the tyre this extra width reduces rolling resistance by up to 18% as opposed to a thinner rim with the same tyre.
The HED Ardennes Plus GP are also tubeless compatible, increased tyre volume and more control with a better ride and designed for use with centre locking disc brakes! Using the Sonic LT Hubs, round steel spokes and alloy nipples these are a great durable wheelset at a very competitive price. Not a sole road wheel and not a true CX wheel this wheelset land somewhere in the middle for the true gravel grinders out there.
