Hed Cycling is a manufacturer of premium quality bicycle wheels and components. Based in Minneapolis, MN, Hed prides itself on being US-operated, and with most manufacturing and assembling done in their own US factory.
Founded in the mid-1980's by Steve and Anne Hed, the company continues to embody his design philosophy even after his tragic passing in 2014. Known as True Speed, this mantra encapsulates a theme of bringing every rider the best possible, most reliable, fastest, and most well-rounded cycling products.
Steve’s legacy lives on, and the company is now run by Steve’s wife, Anne, in an all-new Minnesota factory. In 2014, Anne was awarded the Established Business Owner of the Year for Minnesota, by the National Association of Women Business Owners. More recently, Hed was a winner of the 2016 FedEx Small Business Grant, and was nominated for the 2016 Deubener Award and Forbes Small Giants.
