The Stinger 50 is an all carbon wheel ideal for road racing. Utilizing a 50mm rim depth, it is much more aerodynamic than a traditional alloy rimmed road wheel. While this rim depth will make you faster, it is not so deep that handling will be compromised in crosswinds or a crowded peloton. With its superior strength and ultra-lightweight design, climbing with the Stinger 50 will feel no different than with a lightweight traditional wheel.
The Stinger 50 is built with sonic hubs, bladed 6/4 ti spokes front, and bladed steel spokes rear. 700c only. Hed strongly recommends carbon-compound brake pads for use with all Stinger wheels.
