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. Other wheels (even our own) 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.
The original and best carbon three-spoke wheel receives some special tweaks that make it even faster.
It won't have escaped your attention that the iconic HED H3 has been winning big since Graeme Obree rode them to the Hour record in 1993. Most recently the H3 was used to win the 2011 British National TT Championships in 2011 as well as being used to claim a 2011 World TT Championship Silver medal (the Gold was claimed by one of our Jet wheels!!)
The HED Flamme Rouge H3 comes in either a clincher version or a tubular version. Both of these versions of the H3 come with a lightweight alloy braking surface. (For the all carbon, tubular H3 please see the "H3C".
This wheel is also available in a track specific version.
