Getting your wheel combination right can be the difference between winning or losing a race, or setting a new PR. Besides having a proper bike fit, using a good set of wheels may make the most difference in your bike split.
We rent HED wheels. HED is a locally-owned firm, with a world-wide reputation. They have been at the forefront of wheel technology for more than 15 years, and continue to build on their history of excellence and innovation.
Try out some of these super-fast wheels for your next race or training ride, and experience the performance for which they are renown.
The price of a rental is $160, covering a 5-day period (Wednesday through Sunday or Thursday through Monday). There is a $1600 deposit (this is not actually rung up on your card, but if you skip town with the wheels, then we will have to charge you to cover our cost).
Rentals require payment in full when you reserve them, and are non-refundable. The rental price includes the labor involved, such as swapping out the cassette and adjusting the shifting if necessary.
If I decide to purchase the wheelset within 30 days of the rental, then the cost of the rental will be applied to the purchase price.
You will be required to read and sign this rental agreement at the time of checkout.

HED Jet 4 (Front Wheel)
Good, better, best ... supreme. What comes next?
Jet Flamme Rouge wheels represent the finest clincher aero wheel technology in the world.
For 2011, they feature 1K carbon aero sections (saving 30g per rim), scandium C2 outer rim, titanium skewer, hub hardware, new rear wheel lacing pattern, and a new grease port rear hub.
Stability Control Technology is also applied to our aero shapes providing sure footed handling in crosswinds. Ride like a pro, go Flamme Rouge.
HED Jet 6 (Front & Rear Wheel)
The first Aero clincher wheels, ever since 1990. The new 60mm aero section made specifically for the C2 rim make the Jet 6 better than ever.
They're more aero, they roll better, corner better, and they're lighter. Even in crosswinds, the Jet 6 wheels are fast, it takes a strong crosswind to stall them out. These wheels have won everything from local crits to the Ironman World Championship.
Climbing? They're plenty light for climbing. Unless your race is all uphill in the mountains, Jets are going to get you to the finish faster.
HED Jet 9 (Rear Wheel)
What makes the Jet 9 so good, and so much better than its predecessor?
It is all interrelated. The new wheel is more aero, it has lower rolling resistance, it corners and handles better, and it more comfortable - all increase speed, and all are a result of our C2 rim 23mm technology.
The Jet 9 is an excellent race wheel, and it happens to be strong enough for everyday use by sub-190lb riders. As a front wheel they are a good choice for athletes that ride at 25mph or faster in light and medium wind conditions. For those athletes that are riding 25mph or less the front wheel should be reserved for days when the winds are light.
