Topping off the HED Jet FR line of wheels is the Jet 9 FR. A 90mm deep aero section combined with a 23mm C2 rim and SCT shaping. Deep wheels are generally easy to make aerodynamic, but with poor shaping they are nearly impossible to handle in the crosswinds. Hed's proprietary stability control technology ensures the Jet 9 will ride as stable as any low profile wheel.

Since the introduction of the C2 platform in 2008, Hed has experienced a dramatic improvement over previous designs: aero drag was reduced substantially and the use of wider tires dramatically improved cornering. Stability Control Technology (SCT) is Hed's proprietary rim profile tuning process. Each rim depth is shaped for lowest aero drag and fine-tuned to maximize stability in crosswinds.

• The aero section of the Jet 9 FR wheels is molded from a stiffer and lighter 1K fabric (saving 54g per rim).
• Flamme Rouge Sonic hubs are built to the same exacting tolerances as regular sonics, but reduce weight with a carbon hub shell and forged titanium ratchet ring.
• Abec5 bearings are used for durability and low rolling resistance. Ti skewers are lighter than stock steel.
• The Scandium alloyed rums on the FR wheels are lighter, strong, and stiffer than unalloyed models.
• Lightweight and unidirectional carbon aero section.
• 18 front and 24 rear silver bladed spokes.
• Carbon FR Sonic hubs.
• Rear hub grease port with aluminum port cap.
• Titanium skewer, rim tap and valve extender included.
• Rider weight limit 190lbs.
• Stallion build available for riders 191-225lbs.
• Weight: 895 grams.
• Width: 23mm.
• Depth: 90mm.
• Imported.



HED Cycling

Back in 1984 Steve Hed started his company by building disc wheels. At that time, Hed was the only company that made them affordable to the masses. With his wind tunnel experience and solid manufacturing knowledge, it became obvious to Steve that his disc wheel provided a huge aerodynamic advantage. Using them for front wheels, however, created steering problems that sometimes could be outright catastrophic. In order to solve this problem, Steve simply invented the deep section carbon wheel that we all see today. In hindsight this seems like a simple solution but back in the 80's it was quite revolutionary.

Over the past 26 years, Steve Hed has spent his energy developing the best cycling equipment available. When it comes to wheels, the end goal is simply to make them as fast as possible. It may sound easy but the journey to building the world's fastest wheels is a complicated one. In the pursuit of speed, Steve continually pushes the envelope to its fullest; no stone is left unturned. Hed is known for building the world's most aerodynamic wheels, a title that all wheel companies wish they could claim. Most people do not realize that Hed goes a lot further than just aerodynamics to bring you the fastest wheels on earth. Other important issues such as tire performance, stability in crosswinds, lateral stiffness, drivetrain efficiency, durability, comfort, quality control, carbon fiber manipulation, and weight are also carefully considered. Each wheel addresses these aspects in different ways and this is truly where the art of True Speed is born.
