It’s the wheel that wouldn’t die.
It’s the wheel that wouldn’t change (much).
It’s the ‘Trispoke’, the ‘3-spoke’, or simply the 'Hed 3'.
Design for the original wheel began in the 1980’s, and save a major overhaul to the hub design in 2007, it has remained largely unchanged.
Do you know how tuff HED 3 wheels are? Well it can certainly chop up your mid-ride snack into a smoothie!
