HED Jet 6 Black Wheelset
The Jet 6 has been one of our more popular wheelsets and the Jet Black 6 promises to be even better. The new Turbine Braking Technology promises more stopping security in any condition, which will allow for more confident descending and general riding. Aesthetically we like the all black wheel for the sheer intimidation factor. There is an aspect of stealth to the wheel that we find appealing, especially on the aero Jet.
This wheel is part of our HED Special. Receive a FREE GARMIN EDGE 520.

Today, the Jet 6 is better than ever with the Jet Black. The new Jet Black comes with a new and improved braking surface to accompany the 60mm aero section made specifically for the C2 rim. HEDs C2 rims are wider than you average rim- increasing both cornering performance and lowering drag. This means the new Jet 6 are more aero, they roll better, corner better, and they’re lighter.
HED’s new turbine braking technology allows for greater stopping power through a series of uni-directional grooves on the braking surface. You can expect stopping distance to decrease by 25% on dry surfaces and up to 70% on wet surfaces. Imagine what this can do for your descending confidence?
Crosswinds you ask? No problem. The aero profile of the Jet 6 is optimized for lots of wind conditions and it takes a strong crosswind to stall them out. These wheels have won everything from local crits to the Ironman World Championship, and they’re still setting records. The Jet 6s also climb well. Tests done by HED show that these wheels perform better than a wheel that is 300 grams ligher with a traditional rim profile as long as grades stay below 7.5%. For The Cycling House that means during our winter camps in Tucson these wheels are faster up Mount Lemmon (which never rises above 7%) than a much lighter wheel. And on the flats…..buh bye.
