PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

As far as aero wheels are concerned, the Stinger 6 marks the start of a new era. Built with a brand new rim profile, at 15 degree wind angle the Stinger has 100g less drag than previous models. The wheels are faster and designed to accelerate in a wider range of wind conditions than ever before. All of this is made possible with Hed's Stability Control Technology.

Tire efficiency, cornering speed, handling, strength and stiffness, and even comfort are important factors for overall speed. All these areas are addressed in the Stinger 6. The C2 tire well secures the tire in a wider and slightly deeper 'cradle'. With increased support of the tire carcass, sidewall flexion is reduced, and less flexion vastly increases corner stability and general handling.

Since the introduction of the C2 platform in 2008, Hed has experienced a dramatic improvement over previous designs: aero drag was reduced substantially and the use of wider tires dramatically improved cornering. Stability Control Technology (SCT) is Hed's proprietary rim profile tuning process. Each rim depth is shaped for lowest aero drag and fine-tuned to maximize stability in crosswinds.
 
• 18 front and 24 rear silver bladed spokes.
• Sapim CX-Ray bladed spokes.
• Carbon FR Sonic hubs
• Rear hub grease port with aluminum port cap.
• Titanium Skewer and valve extender included.
• Rider weight limit 210lbs.
• Stinger wheels are designed for 23mm tires.
    - Aerodynamically this is the fastest setup we found.
• The C2 tire well is most impact resistant with 22mm or larger tires.
• Riders 180 - 210 lbs should run 24mm or larger tires.    
• Minimum tire pressure for Stingers is 120 psi, max 135.
• Weight: 823 grams.
• Width: 28mm.

ABOUT THIS BRAND

HED Cycling

Back in 1984 Steve Hed started his company by building disc wheels. At that time, Hed was the only company that made them affordable to the masses. With his wind tunnel experience and solid manufacturing knowledge, it became obvious to Steve that his disc wheel provided a huge aerodynamic advantage. Using them for front wheels, however, created steering problems that sometimes could be outright catastrophic. In order to solve this problem, Steve simply invented the deep section carbon wheel that we all see today. In hindsight this seems like a simple solution but back in the 80's it was quite revolutionary.

Over the past 26 years, Steve Hed has spent his energy developing the best cycling equipment available. When it comes to wheels, the end goal is simply to make them as fast as possible. It may sound easy but the journey to building the world's fastest wheels is a complicated one. In the pursuit of speed, Steve continually pushes the envelope to its fullest; no stone is left unturned. Hed is known for building the world's most aerodynamic wheels, a title that all wheel companies wish they could claim. Most people do not realize that Hed goes a lot further than just aerodynamics to bring you the fastest wheels on earth. Other important issues such as tire performance, stability in crosswinds, lateral stiffness, drivetrain efficiency, durability, comfort, quality control, carbon fiber manipulation, and weight are also carefully considered. Each wheel addresses these aspects in different ways and this is truly where the art of True Speed is born.
