HED’s Fastest Wheel. Ever.

For HED, that’s saying something. It all begins with our patented, wind-tunnel decimating toroidal rim profile, which is handmade by our team here in Minnesota.

The HED Vanquish RCD Pro Disc Brake Rear Disc Wheel is designed to help you hit your highest speeds in your next time trial or triathlon. HED has nearly 40 years of experience of making disc wheels and this is their fastest one yet. It features a skeletal construction which features lightweight carbon sides bonded to a regular spokes wheel. This process results in less drag from all angles. It simultaneously increases vertical compliance which enhances the efficiency and smoothness of your pedaling. This innovative and unique build will lead you to the fastest and smoothest possible ride.

HED used premium 110GSM carbon on this wheel, keeping its weight all the way down at just 1,135 grams. This carbon also maintains extreme lateral stiffness through your highest efforts on the road. The rim has an internal measurement of 21mm to support both tubeless-ready or clincher tires. Added support helps knock down rolling resistance and impact resistance. Rolling resistance is further mitigated with the help of a Sonic Pro Hub with smooth bearings and 5-pawl engagement. The HED Vanquish RCD Pro Disc Brake Rear Disc Wheel has everything you need to crank out your most powerful ride.

The Vanquish RC Pro Revolution.

At a time when most other bike wheel brands rushed to the market with full-carbon clinchers, featuring carbon rim brake tracks, HED chose a more calculated approach. At HED Cycling, we don’t use materials (carbon or alloy) just to use them. We use the best application of material for the riding discipline – whether it’s on road or off road – in order to create the fastest, most reliable products possible.

To date, our Jet RC Plus and Jet RC Black rim brake wheels are more aerodynamic, more comfortable, safer, and lighter than our competitors’ full-carbon rim brake wheels. When we threw our hat in the ring of full-carbon clinchers, we did so with precision and artistry.

Enter the Vanquish RC Pro Series, our full carbon, disc brake masterpiece. Holder of the patent for the most aerodynamic bike wheel in the world.

From the start, the HED R&D team made a commitment: if we couldn’t make a full-carbon rim brake wheel that performed better than our iconic Jet wheel series, we wouldn’t take it to market.

It needed to be light and responsive. It needed to be faster than anything we had made before. It also had to be safe and reliable. Since other full-carbon rim brake wheels on the market can warp and become subject to blowouts as heat is applied through braking, we maintained alloy brake tracks in our Jet series and adopted best-in-class disc braking technology for our full-carbon wheels.

At HED, compromise is never an option. Period.

Each Vanquish RC Pro rim is made by hand in the U.S.A., right here in Minnesota, and each one goes through an unprecedented level of quality control. Between this level of craftsmanship and the unprecedented aerodynamic performance of the Vanquish rim profile, the result is truly something special. There’s a spirit to these wheels: a superb, searingly fast ride quality; a true embodiment of HED’s philosophy of Proven Speed.
