Do you want a wheel that’s light, aero, comfortable, stiff, and fast?  Do you like having your cake and eating it too?  If you answered yes to any of those questions, hunker down for a slice of Stinger 5.

Stinger 5’s are similar to the 6’s in that they’re considered to be ‘do-it-all’ wheels.  What’s the difference?  The 5 leans towards lighter weight, while the 6 leans towards aerodynamics.  It should be noted that – outside of our Stinger 6 – the Stinger 5 is the most aerodynamic rim we’ve tested that’s less than 80mm deep.  Some folks even go a little crazy by pairing a 5 front and 6 rear, for the best of both worlds. 

Stingers feature our new 545 rear hub, with 5 pawls and 45 ratchet teeth for faster engagement, along with large bearings for long lasting durability and drag-free operation.  Disc brake option available.
