Hed Ardennes disc break wheel

I have hed Ardennes wheels on my 2017 cannondale evo disc brake bike. These wheels are simply the best wheels I have ever owned. I used to have zipp 303 and eastons. Hed wheels have zero flex, bearings are silky smooth. I running Vittoria corsa speed 25 cc tubeless tires and the responsiveness is top notch especially on climbs. I recently went with new set up 11/34 cassette and 50/34 compact as I like to spin my up the hills rather grind. What else can be said the best wheels in this price range! Highly recommend!
