PROJECT TURBO™

3rd GENERATION AERO CARBON WHEELS

BLADEX TURBO Rim

Transforming Crosswind into Power

The traditional rim designs all intended to reduce the drag caused by the cross wind, our TURBO™ rim takes advantage of the cross wind, and turns it into speed.

This patented rim design creates curves on the rim surface, these curves transform the cross air flow to spin power forward.

As CFD(Computational Fluid Dynamics) result shows, the drag is reduced remarkably.

 

TURBO™ VS Traditional Rim CFD Results

TURBO Rim CFD Result

 

 

The 1st Generation Aero Wheel Design

The first generation road bike rim used to construct a narrow and “V” shaped rim, with a V shaped rim, the front wheel with tire makes a nice leading edge which has good aerodynamic performance. But lately the industry realized that the back half of the wheel has a sharp leading edge, so makes a backward airfoil, which means the back half of the wheel actually is creating drag.

The 2nd Generation Aero Wheel Design

Zipp 404 VS BladeX SDM Rim Shape

The 2nd generation rim design does much more better, as it is wider and U shaped, which brings significantly better handling and low drag in cross wind.
