The H3 has propelled more Grand Tour riders to the podium than any other wheel. Why? It is not a secret. The H3 is the ultimate in all wind conditions. Whether it is a headwind, crosswind, or tailwind, the H3 is fast.
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
Other wheels are certainly speedy, but all other wheels have a specific wind range where they excel. The H3 offers speed no matter where the wind is. The pros know this, and many count on the H3 as their no compromise TT wheel choice.
Our H3 wheels offer full on aero performance in any conditions. The key to the wide range of performance is the combination of a 55mm deep rim section, the airfoil section spokes and the smooth transitions between the two. The 55mm deep rim keeps drag low at shallow yaw angles. When the yaw angle goes past 15° the aero spokes work to keep the wheel from stalling, and drag stays flat. The optimum wind angle for the H3 is an amazing.
Some time in 1985 Steve Hed emerged blinking from the gloom of his garage with a prototype aero wheel in his hand. Twenty-five years, hundreds of hours of wind tunnel testing and dozens of top-level professional victories later, we’re making the fastest wheels in the world. In the past three years alone, the winners of all three Grand Tours and the winner of the Hawaii Ironman have won on HED wheels. As every serious cyclist knows, wheels are a major source of drag. How do you lower that drag? That’s where HED comes in. We have gathered a frankly mind-blowing amount of data from both wind tunnel and real-world testing. We’ve exhaustively measured variables like rolling resistance, crosswind handling, cornering and wheel stiffness and factored them all into the equation. OK, so Steve doesn’t build them in his garage any more, but every HED wheel is hand made by our expert wheelbuilders in Shoreview, Minnesota. Although our wheels are constantly evolving as we gain more knowledge, the top-quality workmanship that goes into making them will never change.
