HED Belgium Plus R45 20/24
If you want to count grams but don’t want to sacrifice performance, the HED Belgium Plus 20/24 is waiting for you. Laced to Chris King R45 hubs, with our ultra-smooth bearings and lightweight hubshells, the Belgium Plus 20/24 is thirsty to climb, sprint, and ease your suffering as you tackle every major climb you can get to.
The HED Belgium Plus 20/24 versatile rim with a deep cycling heritage. At 25mm wide, the Belgium Plus will provide a wider tire profile and a rounder contact patch that reduces rolling resistance and creates a more supple ride, and they come tubeless ready to make the ride even smoother. HED goes above and beyond, shot-peening every rim and welding the seam to make them one of the strongest rims available. Finishing it off, the low spoke count, 20h in the front and 24h in the rear, reduces the build weight to fine tune this scalpel.
The R45 is the culmination of over 30 years of bearing experience and more than 20 years of hub building experience. Our R45 rear hub combines a redesigned RingDrive™ system with 45 teeth for lower drag and near instant engagement, a lightweight hub body, and our legendary made-in-house bearings.
Our bearings, available in steel and ceramic, surgical grade steel races that are machined simultaneously to ensure perfectly matched inner and outer races. The quality and speed of our bearings are what sets us apart from the competition and they are what you will feel and notice on every single ride. As Chris King bearing tracks burnish they get faster with age and all our hubs and bearings are fully serviceable for years upon years of demanding use.
The patented Chris King RingDrive with 45-points of simultaneous engagement will get your power to the ground fast, provide unmatched engagement, and give you that legendary Chris King angry-bee sound.
We recommend a rider weight limit of 165lbs, to ensure long-term durability. We recommend the HED Belgium Plus 24/28 for riders seeking similar wheel characteristics and increased durability.
