What’s better than the all around performance of the HED Vanquish 4? That same performance all blacked out with a stealth appearance. That’s exactly what you’ll get with the new HED Stealth Vanquish 4s, but as the Limited Edition moniker would imply, these will be in limited supply…
Starting with the Vanquish 4 rim profile, these wind tunnel tested and proven rims offer a 40mm depth, and a 21mm internal width with 30mm external width. That should make them perfect for a modern road bike (optimized for 23-28mm tires) or even as a fast gravel wheelset.
The FC10 carbon rims are tubeless ready and ship with the necessary rim tape and tubeless valves.
For the Stealth LE version, HED worked with Chris King to offer a U.S. made hubset to match the U.S. made rim set. Offered in 100 x 12 and 142 x 12mm thru axles with Centerlock brake mounts, the 24h hubs are laced to the rims with Sapim CX-Ray spokes.
Offered in 700c, the Stealth wheelset will be limited to just 50 pairs which will sell for $2,600 with a double padded wheel bag.
