Hed Jet Disc

The draw: Disc aerodynamics and the ride of a spoked wheel

Most discs ride roughly because a solid foam core is less absorbent than a spoked wheel. although it isn’t the most glamorous construction, hed bonds thin sheets of carbon around a spoked wheel to create the Jet Disc, making the handling and ride feel outstanding. The covers on the wheel are equally aerodynamic to foam core construction, and this wheel tracks through tight corners instead of jittering and bouncing around like most discs.
