    Other manufacturers of tri spoke wheels? (650 or 700c, clincher)

    I know HED has the 3, and Zipp at least used to make one. But I can't seem to find any others.


    I used the search, but it's not getting any of the terms I used.

    Corima makes a good tri-spoke.
    I have raced on HED 3's. They are truly awesome for performance but somewhat noisy and fairly rough. You will like them.

    Xentis, Token and other asian "brands" have trispokes coming this year. Don't remember if they will have any clinchers.

    Hed is currently re-fitting the Hed3 line for deeper rims. I think $700 to do one 90mm wheel? Also, when the patent expired on the Hed3, Zipp bought it. That's what Steve Hed said anyways.

    I have a pair of Crosswinds. I've got the road and track hubs and have ridden them for TTs and on the track. They make a cool whooshing noise at speed. I don't think they're rough, but I guess that depends on tires and pressure. Don't seem to get blown around too much when it's windy.

    I like them, but haven't really ridden any other aero type wheels, so can't provide any comparisons.
