Emporia GC3 Performance Gravel Wheelset
  • Emporia GC3 Performance Gravel Wheelset

    Taking all the technology from the range leading Pro series and blending it with high-grade materials, the Emporia RC3 Performance gravel wheels offer punch, comfort and composure at a more accessible price point.

     

    150 GSM carbon fibre is hand-sculpted in HED's Minnesota facility into a patented aerodynamic rim profile to result in a reactive, compliant, resilient and fast ride across the most challenging multi-surface adventures. A hookless inner rim format with a 26mm width ensures secure, easy mating with tubeless-ready gravel tyres, better supporting their sidewalls to decrease rolling resistance and improve traction at more forgiving inflation pressures. Additionally, the hookless format enhances the rim's strength, markedly bolstering its ability to withstand the heaviest hits.

     

    GP Performance hubs house silky-smooth bearings, and a four-pawl freehub grants near-instant engagement during frequent changes in riding pace. Sapim Race DB spokes lace the rims to the hubs in reliable, stiff two-cross lacing patterns.
