Swiss Side Shows-Off New HADRON2 Classic 500 Disc Brake Wheelset

The Zurich-based brand Swiss Side launched its all-new HADRON2 Ultimate disc brake wheels last summer, which were met with much acclaim thanks to a further reduction in aerodynamic drag with no compromise to their handling and stability. 

According to Swiss Side, the same attributes are now available in the tubeless HADRON2 Classic 500 disc brake wheelset, which features the same rim design as the disc brake HADRON2 Ultimate, but rely on the more cost efficient DT Swiss 370 hubs and heavier gauge aero spokes.

The result is a wheel that posses all of the aerodynamic advantages of the Ultimate range, but with an even stiffer construction at a significantly lower price. In fact, Swiss Side claims the new wheelset yields a 10% reduction in aerodynamic drag, along with a 26% increase in stability. 

“Our target at Swiss Side has always been top performance at an affordable price,” says Jean-Paul Ballard, CEO and Co-founder of Swiss Side.

“We are therefore proud and very excited to continue fulfilling this promise, by now offering the new generation HADRON2 aero rim shape also for the Classic model in the 500 (50mm) rim depth. This is simply the fastest, best quality and best value for money wheelset on the market today.”

The HADRON2 Classic 500 is aimed at cyclists who are looking for a highly-versatile, low-weight, agile wheelset with “unshakeable handling characteristics in windy conditions that’s as comfortable and fast on flat and rolling terrain, with the reactivity and stability required to take on mountain climbs and descents in any weather with full confidence,” boasts Swiss Side.

Additionally, the 20mm internal rim width has been optimized for 25mm and 28mm tires, but can also accommodate rubber up to 32mm.

The HADRON2 Classic 500 disc brake wheelset sells for 1,624 Euros, which is compatible with Shimano, SRAM, Campagnolo and XDR 10,11 and 12 speed free-hubs.
