HED Goes Deep with Jet 180 Rear Wheel

To the rejoice or triathletes and time trialists, HED has decided to go deep with the launch of its new Jet 180 rear wheel. 

Despite having a very disc-like appearance, as one can glean from the images, the new Jet 180 is in fact a spoked wheel, comprising a series of inter-laced spokes in conjunction with a traditional hub.

“The 180 is designed to go very fast and handle great in all wind conditions.  It is a simple concept that has proven itself quite complicated to execute. If you’re racing where aero discs are not allowed, where extreme crosswinds are likely, or if you just don’t want a full aero disc – we hear you.  The 180 is your wheel,” boasts HED.

Weighing in at 1,800 grams, the Jet 180’s tubeless-ready rim has a maximum external width of 32.5mm and an internal width of 21mm that’s been optimized for 25mm to 28mm tires.  

Offered in both rim and disc brake variants, the made-in-Minnesota Jet 180 sells for $1,900, which has a lead time of 4 to 6 weeks.
