Emporia GC3 Pro Gravel Wheelset
  • Emporia GC3 Pro Gravel Wheelset

    HED’s flag-bearing gravel wheels combine 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 rims utilise the finest grade of carbon to ensure low weight, strength and bump-taming compliance, while their 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 rims have 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.


    HED Sonic Pro hubs are at the centre of the build, with their super-smooth bearings keeping frictional resistance to a minimum. Center Lock disc rotor attachment helps keep the braking positive and composed, and a 5-pawl, 45-ratchet freehub body grants fast engagement when the riding is irregular. Sapim Laser spokes complete the build and are arranged in two-cross lacing patterns to heighten strength and reliability.
