Here is the ultimate cross wheelset! This is a set of HED Stinger 5CX carbon disc brake wheels that I purchased new late last summer (2015). They are Shimano/SRAM 11 speed compatible and 50mm in depth. The "CX" part of the name indicates that they have a wider tire bed made specifically for wider cross tires. They were used for 8 cross races, and that is it! I trained and warmed up on different wheels, so the wheels are barely used and the tires have tons of tread life left. The tires were purchased new when the wheels were purchased new, so both are less than 1 year old. The tires were glued up by my LBS with the method that combines multiple layers of glue and CX Tape, which is supposed to be quite strong. I'm assured they should have a season left in them before the tires will need to be reglued. The tires are a bit dirty, but they are in excellent shape. I also put aquaseal on them to protect the sidewalls, but this was after 1 race was already completed. That is why they look a bit dirty beneath the sealant if you are curious. These are QR and center lock rotor compatible, and they do not come with rotors. 6 bolt rotors would also work if you add the center lock to 6 bolt adapter. If you have thru axles these can be converted if you buy the thru axle conversion kit from HED.
Here is what you get:
They are in excellent condition, but they have been used so perfect, brand new wheels should not be expected. I assure there is nothing major, and the only thing I am aware of is a small nick in one of the stickers on the rim (see picture). So nothing to worry about since these are cross wheels and those things happen! More details can be found at the HED website if you look at the Stinger Disc Brake page. MSRP on the wheel set alone is about $2,200 and the tires are about $250. Get them both for much cheaper!
