Let the wind slip right by
The H3 is highly acclaimed for its unique design, which is matched only by the number of times it's been ridden to the podium. The H3 features incomparable speed, revolutionary lateral stiffness, and superior handling abilities. Whether you're looking for the cream of the crop of time trial wheels or an extra advantage for your next triathlon season, the HED H3 FR Clincher Road Wheels are the answer.
While other companies are just now starting to improve upon the carbon clincher wheel, HED has been fine-tuning perfection for decades. Just as the favorite child gets an extra scoop of ice cream, the H3 FR clincher has enjoyed numerous technological innovations and improvements to further cement its position at the top of the heap. To begin with, the H3 is extremely aerodynamic. The H3 utilizes three main components to achieve its low drag ratios: a 54mm deep rim section, airfoil section spokes, and the smooth connection points where the two join. The H3 design has perpetually concentrated on eliminating drag resistance from every angle of the wheel. The deep rim section is designed to minimize drag at shallow yaw angles, and past 15 degrees, the shape of the airfoil spokes allow airflow passage to keep the wheel from stalling.
The HED H3 FR Carbon Clincher Road Wheels have an intense focus on rigidity and stability. The carbon layup, resins, and fiber orientations of the H3 are at their most advanced stages to date. The result is a startling amount of lateral and torsional rigidity. To ice the cake, HED has also developed a 'secret weapon' that it calls Stability Control Technology, which effectively tames crosswind at any angle to the wheel. SCT is so secret that HED will not detail the process publicly, but the performance value is instantly recognizable upon usage.
Unparalleled quality control, aerodynamic design, and rim shape innovation set the H3 FR Clincher Road Wheels apart from the pack. Decades of H3 podium finishes have reinforced that HED is better following the beat of their own drum, and that eventually, all others will follow.
The HED H3 FR Carbon Clincher Road Wheels include a titanium skewer and alloy rim cap, and they have a maximum recommended user weight of 250lb. Please note that these wheels are sold individually, and that the rear is available with either a Shimano/SRAM or Campagnolo 11-speed freehub.
