Swiss Side HADRON Ultimate 625 (Procycling Review August 2017)

"The aerodynamic experts at Swiss Side with longterm experience in Formula 1 racing are not only focusing on top aerodynamic performance and maximum sailing effect of their aero wheels, but also ensure steering stability when cross winds hit. 

This was proven during the test out on the roads. While riding the HADRON Ultimate aero wheels you feel the outstanding stability when cross winds hit. The wheels come with ceramic bearings as a standard for a price of EUR 1900/set. The rear wheel could be a little stiffer. This might be a compromise for the top aero performance of the wheels."

20 of the best 2017 road bike wheels (April 28th 2017)

Hadron 485 and 625 made it into the top 20 road bike wheels in 2017, recommended by!

Hadron wheels (named after that big circular tunnel near Geneva, of course) are available in rim depths of 48.5mm, 62.5mm and 80mm (front)/85mm (rear). All share the same fundamental construction, with aluminium rims and carbon fairings. Swiss Side says it's done an enormous amount of work to perfect the aerodynamic design of these rims, focusing on aerodynamic drag and also minimising the sensitivity to side-winds.

They've performed well in a wide variety of riding. We won't pretend that we can accurately determine the difference compared with other quality aero wheels of a similar depth, but they certainly feel like they're in the same ball-park, holding speed really well and making a rather satisfying hum in the process.

They use a hybrid aluminium-carbon rim to give aluminium-rim brake performance and class-leading aerodynamic performance, at a price way below the big players like Zipp and Enve. And by god they sound good.
