A huge benefit of having pro riders on Hed wheels is the input they give to make
them better. After suggestions from Hed pro teams for a deeper and stiffer wheel
for road racing, Hed came up with the Stinger 7. This is the deepest wheel Hed
recommends for road racing.
The Hed Stinger 7 Flamme Rouge Carbon Tubular Bicycle Wheelset is ideal for the
sprinter…super stiff! The sidewalls are reinforced to provide that stiffness
without compromising the overall weight of the wheel. The reinforced side walls
help eliminate flex in a corner or when you are going all out towards the line.
Triathletes will also benefit for the deeper more aero faring. The 7's will
provide increased aerodynamics but not compromise handling at all. The deeper
section will help on the long stretches of roads triathletes face but not move
when faced with a crosswind.
Like all the Stingers the 7's are tuned with SCT Technology. Meaning Hed made
the wheels deeper and faster but tuned them to be rock solid in cross winds.
