    The final 1000 meters leading to the finish line - at the Tour there is a red pennant marking the last kilometer. At the Giro, riders hit the Ultimo Kilometro. When the race gets to the Flamme Rouge, nothing is held back. The sprinters trains are at full speed, or the breakaway riders are eying each other tensely, or the climbers are grimacing as they struggle for the valuable seconds that could put them on the top step. The Flamme Rouge marks the point where you give it everything.

    It marks the same thing for HED. Flamme Rouge wheels are the ultimate. If it can save weight or save watts, we use it.

    The aero section on Jet 6 FR wheels is molded from a stiffer and lighter Uni fabric, saving 42 g per rim. Flamme Rouge Sonic hubs are built to the same exacting tolerances as regular sonics, but reduce weight with a carbon hub shell. Abec5 bearings are used for durability and low rolling resistance. Ti skewers are lighter than stock steel ones. The C2 alloyed rims on FR wheels are lighter, stronger, and stiffer than unalloyed models. For 2012 Jets are tuned with HED's proprietary SCT (Stability Control Technology) - adding improved crosswind handling to their stellar ride and cornering characteristics.

    The closing meters of the race are where everything counts; Flamme Rouge wheels are built for one thing only. They are built to win.

  • Jet disc carbon clincher

    The HED. disc is where it all began, and in 2011 the Jet Disc took the world TT championship.

    What makes a wheel better?

    Lighter, stiffer, stronger, faster ... any of these are an improvement.

    With our new construction technology, the Jet Disc is all of these. Jet discs are a hybrid wheel, built with spokes for strength and durability. When the substrate wheel is completed, trued, and stress relieved, disc sides are bonded to the hub rim and spokes. With a two part building process, the disc sides can be made lighter and shaped more readily, without losing any strength.

    The new disc incorporates a toroidal bulge near the rim and a radius on the large transition leading from the hub to the bulge. These shapes make the Jet Disc not only faster than the Standard disc, they make it faster than any other disc. ...... faster then most competitors tubular discs.

    Pure speed - it will never get old.

  • H3 Plus

    It’s no secret that Hed pioneered wide rims for road bikes.  Oddly enough, this feature was absent from the one wheel that is an established industry icon and one of our fastest wheels: The H3.  For 2015, we saw the tubular version morph into the next generation, the GT3.  In 2016, we proudly introduce an all-new clincher, the H3 Plus.

Why change?  It’s not that the H3 got slower – it’s that the 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 H3 Plus features a super-wide 25.5mm rim, optimized for use with modern 22 - 25mm clincher tires.

With its wide profile profile and new 60mm rim depth, the H3 Plus is ready to tackle your next time trial or triathlon.  Coupled with modern tire sizes, you’ll enjoy a smoother, more comfortable ride, better grip, and more rolling speed.  It's fast.  It's other-worldly-cool.  It's the H3 Plus.
