Ardennes Black takes the revolutionary Turbine Braking Technology of the Jet Black and applies it to our 25mm-wide Ardennes Plus clincher. Translation? 25% shorter stopping distances in dry conditions, and 70% shorter stopping distances in wet conditions. Additionally, the consistency of stopping distances has improved by nearly a factor of five. That's not a typo.
Like all Ardennes Plus wheels, they're designed for maximum ride quality, rolling speed, stiffness, and tubeless compatibility.
The Ardennes Black replaces the Ardennes Plus FR, making it the top choice in the Ardennes line. Equipped with new black Sonic hubs, it's time to see and feel the benefits of True Speed.
