These are the latest generation of HED's Belgium Series C2 clincher rims. Available in 3 spoke count drillings and featuring a width of 23mm, these are some of the most coveted rims on the ''cross circuit.
As a leader in wider road and cross rims, HED continues the C2 with a wider footprint, which translates to more volume inside the tire, allowing you to run 10-15% lower tire pressure for increased ride quality. The wider profile also means more rubber on the ground. That means you can turn faster and tighter, with more control.
HED continues to be a leader in wheel design, and the Belgium C2 rims are an excellent choice for any cross, commuter, or touring rider that''s looking for a little more volume in their tires.

Through Treefort, i got a great price on the HED Belgium rims. The wheel was built with 32h Shimano Ultegra hubs and some nice black spokes; they look great. They replaced an older set of Kysrium Elite wheels with much fewer radial spokes. Using the same tires, I am amazed at how different my Kona Esatto ti feels. They feel stiffer laterally yet more compliant overall...in a good way. Despite some additional weight compared to the Elites, these things roll great; in fact, they're as fast or faster. In a word, they're smooooth. Rougher roads are a dream to ride, and i find myself riding the road bike more than the gravel bike. Overall, a huge upgrade and decent value for about $400.
