If you take a careful look around the pro race scene – both road and triathlon – it’s quite common to see funny looking, unmarked, bulge-shaped disc wheels. We find that interesting, because the Stinger disc is a funny-looking bulge-shaped disc wheel… but they leave our factory with Hed stickers. If we didn’t know any better, we’d say that a lot of professionals are choosing to ride Hed Stinger discs without our stickers – in spite of their sponsorship contracts – because they know it’s the fastest tubular disc on the market.
We’ll consider the secret to be out: This wheel is FAST. The wide rim, contoured shape, and traditional internal spoke construction make the Stinger disc the absolute best combination of aerodynamic performance, weight, stiffness, and ride quality. Unlike most other disc wheels, it’s also available with a Powertap hub.
You can spend more money on other wheels, but you won’t find a quicker way to the finish line.
*Also available with all-white HED wheel decals (call for details)
- For all types of bicycle wheels, a hard strike on the rim is likely to result in rim damage. At the point of impact, an aluminum rim will dent, and a carbon rim may delaminate - both are unsafe conditions that require rim replacement.
