This is achieved by ensuring maximum aero stability and predictability in the wind so that the rider remains in their aero position for the maximum time.

Manufactured through DT Swiss, once again the highest possible Swiss quality and durability is assured.

Swiss Side has come to the wheel table with a practical solution using modern technology and design to create a fast wheel-set that handles superbly for its depth. It’s no wonder Andreas Raelert, who holds the world record time for an iron-distance race, and his brother Michael, a two-time Ironman 70.3 world champion, are happy to use these wheels.

SWISS SIDE HADRON 800+ IM PRAXISFAHRTEST (tri2B.com, Aug-2015)

Laufräder verändern am stärksten das Fahrverhalten und das Aussehen eines Triathlonrades beziehungsweise. Rennrades. Schnell sollen sie sein, sprich: gute bis sehr gute Aerodynamikwerte aufweisen, und dem Rad dazu optisch eine ganz individuelle Note verpassen. Der Schweizer Hersteller Swiss Side ist angetreten dies zu bieten, zu einem im Vergleich zu den Aerolaufrad-Premiummarken (wie z.B. Zipp oder Lightweight) fast konkurrenzlos günstigen Preis. Wir haben den Hadron 800+ Laufradsatz im Praxiseinsatz unter die Lupe genommen.

Swiss Side Hadron 485 and 800+ wheels – just in (bikeradar.com, May-2015)

To summarise, the 800+ is an 80mm deep aero wheelset that costs €1,192 (about £850 / US$1,322 / AU$1,680); the Hadron 485 is 485mm deep set that comes in at €1,158 (about £825 / US$1,285 / AU$1,630).
That puts both sets at less than 50 percent the price of equivalent depth Zipp Firecrest models – the industry leading wheels that Swiss Side’s Hadron 625 beat in an open wind tunnel test. You can mix and match front and rear wheels and there’s also a ceramic bearing upgrade for €60.
