Built for cobbles and cyclocross races, the HED Stinger S5 Front Wheel has won countless Grand Tours and represents the ultimate in racing performance. It features a 50mm deep rim with an extra layer of carbon for a more comfortable ride on the roughest roads. The rim bed is deeply channeled to improve airflow, rolling resistance and the seating of tubular tires. It's also been raised to accommodate 25mm or wider tires, making it perfect for larger cyclocross tires. The C2 rim platform dramatically reduces aero drag and improves cornering. Stability Control Technology shapes the rim depth for optimal handling, so the wheel remains stable in crosswinds and aerodynamic performance isn't compromised. Carbon Sonic Flamme Rouge hub and Sapim CX-Ray spokes guarantee ultimate efficiency and overall riding experience. The ideal blend of strength, low weight and stiffness, the HED Stinger S5 excels in the toughest conditions and is one of the fastest, deep section tubulars available.
