Even when the wind is coming at you from an angle, and most of the time it will be, HED's H3 wheels slice through the air with amazing efficiency. Three airfoil-shaped "spokes" that transition gently into a 54mm deep rim are the key. The rim cuts through the air when the wind is mostly head-on, and when the wind is from an angle, the tri-spoke design goes to work to keep the drag low. All this means the H3s are faster in any conditions than a traditional spoked wheelset. And to tame all that velocity, the aluminum braking surface is durable and gives you solid, predictable braking in all conditions. That's the reason why you've seen these wheels ridden by the fastest time-trial and triathlon riders in the world.
