HED Cycling (United States) - Introducing the all-new Emporia GC3 Performance. Borrowing heavily from the design of the Emporia GC3 Pro, the Emporia GC3 Performance features a 30mm deep carbon rim with a 26mm internal width and is priced at $1,650 per wheel set.
When Steve Hed started designing all-road wheels, like the HED Ardennes, a decade ago, his primary goal was to enable cyclists to ride with confidence and a sense of inspiration. He wanted cyclists to "look up". He wanted cyclists to be able to ride faster, sure, but he also wanted them to experience the beauty of gravel riding.
With the Emporia GC3 Performance, the team at HED Cycling has designed a wheel in that spirit, a wheel that is top-performing but, more than anything, encourages cyclists to ride, to explore, to look up.
