When only the very best will do, the Hermes Sport Premier line rises to the challenge. Featuring the finest German-made hubs and ultralight rims, these wheels represent the creme-de-la-creme of our product range.
Since it’s introduction in late 2010, the Excellence has been well received as the mainstay of Hermes Sport’s high end wheel line, and remains the lightest, fastest aerodynamic carbon wheelset we make. Newly refined for 2012, the Excellence comes in weighing a spritely 1070g, with an industry-beating heat capacity of 230 degrees celsius, with a further ability to handle temperatures of 320 degrees C for short bursts. In practical terms, the Excellence, in addition to being the among the lightest wheelsets to be found anywhere, is also one of the safest carbon wheelsets ever made, free from the risk of heat-related failure. With the fine Tune hubs that made it one of the most distinctive wheelsets to be found anywhere in the peloton, the Excellence is the choice when victory is on the line, and the wind must be overcome.

Our top-of-the-line aluminum clincher wheelset. Among the the lightest wide-rim road wheelsets commercially available at 1300g, this wheel, professionally built in the USA by our expert wheelbuilders will please anyone looking for day-in, day-out performance combined with the convenience of an aluminum clincher rim. Reliability and weight are further helped by our exclusive use of the new Tune Superspoke, which yields both a 20% decrease in weight and a 20% increase in fatigue life over it’s next lightest comparison.

For rough-and-tumble reliability at excellent value and weight, the Hermes Sport Classic line is here to deliver. All wheels in this line utilize our fine house-brand hubs, but feature the same US-workmanship which make the Premier line first among their peers.
The wheel which began it all. Our original carbon aerodynamic wheelset, this has been a top seller since its inception back in 2009. Never one to sit still, the Aerodynamic wheelset continues to be refined for 2012. Sapim CX-Ray spokes come standard, and improvements in hub weight and carbon layup bring weights of the carbon clincher version down to 1440g, and the carbon tubular version down to 1370g. Years of use and abuse in the nastiest criteriums, cyclocross races have yielded one of the strongest, safest carbon wheelsets on the market, thanks in no small part to the ability for the rims to handle braking temperatures in excess of 400 degress fahrenheit. Where To Buy
After over a year of planning and design, Hermes Sport decides to get dirty for 2012 with our new MTB wheelsets. Bringing the same performance and durability found in our road wheels to a new Carbon wheel line for offroad usage has our great endeavour for 2012.
ODB // ODB GG
The new ODB wheelset is our first genuine foray into the world of off-road mountain biking, and it’s been a strong start. Boasting excellent weights (1450g 29er wheelset, 1380g 26″ wheelset), and the option for both tubular and clincher rims, this wheelset is a go-to option for anyone who prefers the dirt as their playground. Strong enough and with a wide enough rim (27mm clincher, 25mm tubular) for all-mountain use, the ODB wheelset and its bigger brother, the Tune hub-equipped ODB GG remain light enough to satisfy both cross country racers and cyclocrossers in need of disc brakes on their bikes. Convertible through-axle front hubs (9/15/20mm) come standard on the ODB, and the ODB GG has the option for the new 12x142mm through axle rear standard as well. Where To Buy
