The HED GT3 is increasingly being used as the fastest choice in a front tubular for the most important races in the world. It is the next evolution of the iconic H3 and offers a wider stance improving ride quality, aerodynamics and cornering stability. This front wheel is typically pared with a disc rear and delivers the performance riders with seven figure salaries require to beat the best.
If you are wondering why HED needed to update the H3, it is because riders began choosing wider tires. Gone are the days of 18 and 19mm tires for time trials. Riders now embrace the comfort and rolling speed advantages of wider rubber. The GT3 features a super-wide 26.5mm rim, aerodynamically optimized for use with todays 21 and 23mm tires.
The GT3 is simply a fantastic wheel for time trial and triathlon use. Its solid construction makes it a top choice for athletes with busy travel schedules (and exposure to airline baggage handlers). There are no spokes to break, and the wheel can handle a lot of abuse.
