Jet Plus Track Clincher(tubeless compatible)
If you had to pick one series of Hed products that are the fastest, most versatile, and best bang-for-your-buck, it is our beloved Jet Plus line. The Plus rim technology is the next evolution of our groundbreaking C2 rim, and features a 25mm-wide profile. This offers a host of benefits, including better aerodynamics, handling, and stiffness, along with increased tire volume for improved ride quality and rolling speed. Riders everywhere are choosing fatter tires, and our Plus rims are the perfect match.
While many people only think of skinny tires, tubular wheels, and high pressures for track, more and more people are finding the performance benefits of clinchers and wider tires on today’s aging track surfaces. In fact, some of our internal testing has shown faster times with Jet track wheels and lower tire pressures than some combinations of tubular wheels. If you’re looking for the convenience of clinchers and the ability to change tires on race day, look no further than Jet Track wheels.
Available in 4, 6, 9, and Disc.
Stinger Track (tubular)
While many riders choose clincher rims for their convenience, a distinct segment of racers, diehards, and traditionalists continue to choose tubulars for their light weight, ride quality, and wide range of tire pressure. We can’t disagree – there’s something eerily soothing about gluing up a fresh pair of tubbies.
The Stinger is available in a host of iterations to suit any need on the track. With track-specific Sonic hubs, you can have any depth from the super light Stinger 3 to the ultra deep Stinger 9. No matter the track surface or condition, there is a Stinger that is perfect for the situation.
Available in Stinger 3, 5, 6, 9,

Ardennes SL Track
We revolutionized the bicycle wheel in 2007 with the introduction of our 23mm C2 rim. Slowly but surely, most other wheel manufacturers felt the pressure to move to wide rims. Rather than feel content with ourselves, we continued to invest in new technology, debuting the 25mm-wide Plus rim in mid-2013.
Those looking for a budget-friendly set of track wheels for training and racing should look no further than the Ardennes Track. With Hed 24-hole Sonic Track hubs, you have a choice of either 25mm Plus clincher rims or 23mm tubular rims – both without a braking surface.
1. We do NOT recommend hanging a bike equipped with Jet wheels from hooks - this can damage the carbon skin and will not be covered under warranty.
2. All threaded Hed track hubs use the Shimano 1.29” x 24 thread specification.
