HED Stinger 3 Carbon Disc Brake Road Wheelset – Tubular

Rim Depth: 33 mm

Brake Compatibility: disc

Change is not all the time good–peanut-butter-and-pickle sandwiches are gross, it doesn’t matter what people say–but if it is done right it may be awesome. HED nailed it with the Stinger 3 Carbon Disc Brake Tubular Road Wheelset, which mixes new technology (hey, disc brakes!) with time-tested tubular rims for without equal in cyclocross awesomeness. Pretty much all high-performance wheels are produced from carbon fiber at the moment, so there is no wish to talk an excessive amount of about it. HED did add an extra layer of carbon along the rim to spice up the Stinger’s durability on ‘cross courses, despite the fact that. The rim depth may be a shallow 33mm and the width a generous 22mm, dimensions that lend a hand manage crosswinds, reduce rolling resistance, and increase traction all on the same time. Pretty sweet. Disc brakes provide better modulation and stopping power, but HED wasn’t satisfied by just letting you stick CenterLock rotors on and calling it good. It strengthened and stiffened its Carbon Sonic FR hubs to higher care for the braking stresses generated by discs, and added front and rear grease ports for simple servicing, which is awesome when you’re taking the overall grime of cyclocross into consideration. HED even designed the rotors to be removable, so you’ll be able to run rim brakes if you wish to have. The Sapim CX-Ray spokes have also been redesigned to extend durability and strength. Even better, the entire set weighs just 1200g, so it may not make it tough to throw your bike over your shoulder and run through stumbling blocks.
