I have seen both independent tests of the Stinger 9 and Jet 9 and would be interested to know, how these two stack up against each other. I don't think the shapes are identical, but I could be wrong. Another thing is, that it is very hard to figure out when HED is making changes to the rim shape, making it even harder to try and find out which version is tested in a test.
To give an example: In the Tour test from earlier this year, the 808 Firecrest Clincher tested clearly better than the Jet 9. In Bontrager's whitepaper on their new D3 wheels, the Stinger 9 did better than the 808 Firecrest Tubular. Is this because of difference testing methods, a difference between Jet 9 and Stinger 9, or the tire (or something completely else)?
Thanks in advance for any input.
