HED took an already fast wheel and somehow made it faster. The H3 Deep (also known as the H3D) is the same tri-spoke wheel loved by speed freaks the world over, but with a 90mm-deep rim. Used as a front wheel, the H3D is faster out to 10 degrees of wind yaw angle. Meaning that 25mph-and-faster riders get a benefit from the H3D because at these speeds, yaw angles are generally low. When used as a rear wheel, the H3D has proven to be faster than any other rear wheel besides a disc, making it the ideal choice for events where discs are not allowed, such as Ironman Hawaii.
