H+Son Hydra rim
Drawing obvious design cues from the hugely successful Archetype, the Hydra is a lighter, wider, tubeless-ready hoop (of course, you can still use standard clincher tires & tubes if tubeless isn't your thing).
Crafted from G609 alloy, the Hydra weighs a mere 440 grams and promises to be part of a light, strong wheel. The 25mm width is optimized for the fitment of 25/28c tires, providing a more comfortable ride without the squishy feeling commonly associated with using bigger tires.
⚠️ Originally intended for disc brake use, the Hydra does not have a reinforced brake surface and are not compatible with rim brakes.
