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 deep version of the H3 wheel is the version that Lance Armstrong first rode in the 2005 stage-one Tour de France time trial, when he blew past Jan Ullrich in a dramatic statement of intent. It has the same 90mm deep rim and three teardrop-profiled carbon spokes.
Wind tunnel and real-world tests have proven that the HED H3D is super-fast, but it works best at low yaw angles, which means that the best riders get the biggest benefits from it.
The HED Flamme Rouge H3C Deep comes in an all carbon tubular version only. This wheel is full carbon including the braking surface. (For the aluminium braking surface clincher or tubular H3 Deep please see the "H3 Deep".
This wheel is also available in a track specific version.
