Performance to looks, these wheels are nothing but polished! Our engineering and design teams here at HED weren’t content with just having the best performing alloy gravel wheels on the market, they wanted these wheels to scream art and class. Ergo, the Emporia GA Pro Silver Edition Featuring the same supremely wide 25mm internal width as the Emporia GA Pro, the Silver Edition is designed to pair with a wide range of gravel tires without pinching tire sidewalls like other narrower wheels on the market. This equates to increased tire volume, a smoother, quicker ride quality – wheels as fast as they are flashy!

Improving on the Ardennes was never going to be an easy task. When HED’s team of engineers started working on alloy gravel wheels, it did so with nearly a decade of “wide” rim expertise in the rear view, having pioneered wider internal rim widths with the Ardennes Plus in the early 2010’s.
When it comes to gravel, however, “Plus” just isn’t wide enough. This is where the idea for our entire line of Emporia gravel wheels started.
The Emporia GA Pro – Silver Edition is the next edition in our Emporia alloy gravel line, building off over a decade of high quality rim design and throwing in a dash of bling to create our lightest, flashiest alloy gravel wheel yet.
At 1,535g and a 25mm internal width, the Emporia GA Pro – Silver Editions beat many of its carbon competitors in both weight and width.
Why does that matter? Gravel is one of the most demanding cycling disciplines to design for – terrain can be so variable that it is necessary to leave no stone (or pebble) left unturned. When it comes to wheel design, a point of major importance is the pairing of the wheel with a variety of tires, ensuring that the tire bed allows the tire to perform at its absolute best, dampening vibration and enabling speed.
With a lighter, wider wheel, HED’s Emporia GA Pro – Silver Edition is agile and allows a wide range of tire sizes to roll without pinching the tires’ sidewalls. This allows for the tire sidewalls to provide the natural suspension they are designed for, enabling the rider to roll at lower tire pressures and experience a smoother, suppler ride quality. That means more comfort, more speed.
Pair that with HED’s signature Fat Lip Technology, with rim strengthening reinforcement at the rim bead, and you have a set of wheels that are gravel-ready through-and-through.
The Emporia GA Pro – Silver Edition is 700c only and with hubs that are centerlock disc brake-specific.
If you’re looking for best-in-class gravel wheel performance and a healthy dash of flash, the Emporia GA Pro – Silver Edition is for you! Get your set and prepare to shred some gravel.
