If you had to pick one series of Hed products that are the fastest, most versatile, and best bang-for-your-buck, it is our beloved Jet Plus line. The Plus rim technology is the next evolution of our groundbreaking C2 rim, and features a 25mm-wide profile. This offers a host of benefits, including better aerodynamics, handling, and stiffness, along with increased tire volume for improved ride quality and rolling speed. Riders everywhere are choosing fatter tires, and our Plus rims are the perfect match.
The Jet 4 Plus has the shallowest aero section in the Jet line, at 46mm. That makes it the lightest option, and also the least susceptible to side force caused by wind. It is ideal when both weight and aerodynamics are at a premium, and as a great front wheel choice for those who prefer less side force. Chrissie Wellington loves the Jet 4, and rode it to victory at the Ironman® World Championship four times.
This wheel is available in either a standard build with 18 front spokes and 24 rear spokes, or a Stallion build with 20 front spokes and 28 rear spokes. The Stallion build is stiffer, and ideal for strong riders or those around 200 lbs and above.
