Emporia GC3 Pro Gravel Front Wheel
  • Emporia GC3 Pro Gravel Front Wheel

    HED’s flag-bearing gravel front wheel combines a comprehensive blend of traits to guarantee the fastest, most comfortable ride, full of traction, control and confidence, even within the most ambitious multi-surface adventures.

     

    The rim utilises the finest grade of carbon to ensure low weight, strength and bump-taming compliance, while its 31mm deep HED patented aerodynamic profile slices through the air and grants stability across windswept plains, valleys and coastlines. The 26mm wide internal rim format accepts 32mm to 55mm wide tyres, better supporting their sidewalls for decreased rolling resistance, extra traction and improved comfort at lower inflation pressures.

     

    The rim has also been designed with a hookless tyre junction to optimise set up with tubeless-ready tyres, creating a firm and reliable hold when traversing the roughest terrain. Additionally, the hookless design affords stronger rim walls, giving the rider peace of mind when the most brutal hits are encountered.

     

    A HED Sonic Pro hub is at the centre of the build, with its super-smooth bearings keeping frictional resistance to a minimum, and Center Lock disc rotor attachment helps keep the braking positive and composed.  Sapim Laser spokes complete the build and are arranged in a two-cross lacing pattern to heighten strength and reliability.
