Disc brakes are all the rage these days; for good reason. They offer great braking in all weather, especially mud-laden cyclocross, dusty gravel races, and cold winter training rides. What do disc brake bikes deserve more than anything? A great set of wheels.
Ardennes Disc Brake wheels can be had in several variations. The RA Plus is our lightest, fastest, and fanciest version, using Sapim spokes and our 545 J-bend hub. The Ardennes RA Performance Disc offers incredible performance at a great price point, featuring a reliable 4-pawl hub.
All clincher Ardennes RA Plus Disc Brake wheels use the same 25mm wide, tubeless-compatible rim, to bring the most out of your tires.
All Ardennes Plus Disc Brake wheels accommodate every modern axle standard: Quick Release, 15mm front thru axle, 12mm front thru axle, and 142x12mm rear thru axle. For each set of wheels, please specify which axle you need at the time of order. Ardennes RA Performance Disc wheels come stock with 12mm or 15mm front thru axle end caps, and rear 142x12mm axle; QR kit sold separately.
Disc Brake compatibility = Shimano Centerlock.
