Check out this sweet wheelset we just built up! Drew laced up Chris King’s R45 hubset to the HED Vanquish V4 rims. R45 Centerlock hubs combine a lightweight hub body, legendary made-in-house bearings, and now Centerlock compatibility to harness the power of disc brakes. The result is the increased power and modulation of disc brakes, the fast, smooth rolling speed of our bearings, and the rail steering from our one piece solid axles.
Hed’s proprietary Vanquish rims are made in their own Minnesota factory, and undergo an insane level of quality control. The shape is all-new, with a huge 30mm external width (21mm internal width). This results in superb aerodynamic performance with 23-28mm tires. If gravel and endurance riding are your thing, the Vanquish will optimize the shape, ride quality, and even aerodynamics of your wide gravel and cyclocross tires.
