Hed Launches Vanquish

It took them a few years, but a revered brand in the wheel business, has finally released a carbon clincher. I’m surprised they actually did it, but they did, and they look great.

They’re made in the USA too.

What you need to know is they’re $2500 a set, with thru-axles, the disc mounts and a huge 30mm external width.
