Swiss Side opens up their second-generation aerodynamic road wheel tech to mixed-surfaces with new Hadron² All-Road wheelsets. Promising more drag reductions, improved crosswind sailing effect, and stability in a wide range of wind conditions, the wider Hadron² AR wheels become more versatile riding asphalt, dirt & gravel roads.

Much like the Hadron² Ultimate aero road wheels leveraged tech that Swiss Side refined with DT Swiss’ ARC aero road family, these new Hadron² All-Road wheels share tech with DT’s latest ERC endurance road lineup, and the same familiar rim shape. The difference between DT endurance and Swiss Side all-road, is that Swiss Side keeps it simple with a single 45mm deep rim offering, simpler spoke spec, and steel-bearing 240 EXP hub tech that all come together to keep pricing a bit more affordable at less than 10g weight penalty.

Ready for any road surface, the carbon Swiss Side Hadron² All-Road wheelset starts with a wind tunnel-proven 45mm deep  ‘happy medium’ blunt U-nosed aero shape with flatter V-profile sides for improved aero performance. The hooked rim measures 22mm internal, and 28.5mm externally – and subtle, understated graphics.

The wheels are laced 2x with 24 DT Swiss 240 EXP straight-pull hubs rolling on high-quality sealed steel bearings, using T-head DT Aero Comp spokes front & rear, and feature hidden DT Pro Lock alloy nipples. The 12mm thru-axle centerlock hubs include 36T Ratchet EXP engagement & Shimano HG freehubs standard. SRAM XDR & Campagnolo N3W bodies are available separately to work with any 10-13sp groupset.

Swiss Side says the new All-Road wheels are ready for rough roads, cobblestones, and off-road sections with a wide rim designed for 25-65mm wide mixed-surface tires. Race them in the Spring Classics or take them for a spin on your weekend road rides, without having to worry when the pavement ends.
