The Jet 6 Flamme Rouge (FR) is the first and only clincher wheel to win a TT stage in the Tour de France. This do it all wheel is perfect for your favorite local race to the final TT in the tour. With its aerodynamic design, it can win any road race to the fastest time trial. A HED C2 rim bonded to alight 60mm unidirectional carbon aero section provides the perfect combination of aerodynamics and weight. This wheel handles like a shallow wheel in the windiest conditions. The aero section on the Jet 6 FR wheels is molded from a stiffer and lighter 1K fabric (saving 42g per rim).
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.
Rims are built with the same exacting tolerances a regular sonics, but reduce weight with a carbon hub shell and forged titanium ratchet ring.
Abec 5 bearings are used for durability and low rolling resistance.
Ti skewers are lighter than stock steel.
The Scandium alloyed rims on the FR wheels are lighter, stronger, and stiffer than unalloyed models.
