Black Inc THREE – Front Wheel

The THREE is your absolute fastest front wheel option for time trials and triathlons, or it can be run as a pair when a rear disc isn’t an option. It’s so fast that, in the right conditions, it can generate negative drag, like a disc. Front wheel only.

As a front wheel, the THREE is the best partner to the ZERO rear disc for time trials and triathlons. As a pair, it comes into its own at the Ironman World Championships, where disc wheels are prohibited on account of the frequent strong winds. For being so close to the performance of a disc, the THREE is the best wheelset for Kona.

That speed is achieved through rim and spoke shapes that were designed, tested and refined using advanced virtual wind tunnel software, known as CFD (computational fluid dynamics). The deep section rim and spokes are shaped to slice through the air in calm conditions and to generate the “sail effect” when crosswinds create an off-centre wind angle. In certain conditions, the THREE can even create negative drag, pulling itself through the air and deducting from the total drag of the bike and rider system. Crucially, it does so while behaving in a stable, predictable, confidence-inspiring manner.

The one-piece wheel structure is made from ultra-high strength carbon fibre with a dedicated layup to optimise the balance of compliance and lateral stiffness. The THREE is offered as a tubeless-clincher for both disc and rim brakes. It is also available as a tubular for rim brakes.
