Hed Jet 180


US$1,900 Designed with Kona in mind, Hed’s new superdeep-rimmed Jet 180 provides disc-like performanc­e where disc wheels aren’t permitted, for example, the Ironman World Championsh­ip in Hawaii. Despite its deep rim, the wheel is designed to handle any wind conditions, including the stiff crosswinds that can knock you off your game along the Queen K highway on the Big Island. Like all the Hed products, the new Jet 180 is hand-built in the company’s Minnesota factory. It’s available in both disc and as a Black Series rim brake model. Tubeless compatible, the rims come with a 32.5-mm external width, providing both a smooth ride and aero performanc­e. How aero? There’s no doubt the speedy wheel helped Sam Laidlow shatter the bike course in Kona this year. (See Bike Training, p.30)—KM
