The draw: Wet weather braking

Since 1984, HED Cycling has been one of the industry leaders in wheel technology, and its new Jet 9 Black wheelset is no exception. The wheels feature HED’s plus rim, with internal diameter of 21mm, allowing for better rolling resistance and improved aerodynamics. The standout feature of the Black series is the Turbine Braking Technology, which not only looks cool but also, HED reports, allows for 25 percent shorter stopping distance in dry weather, and 70 percent shorter in wet conditions.
