THE THIRD GENERATION AERO CARBON WHEELS
Converting Crosswind into Power
The 3rd Generation Aero Wheels
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 convert the cross wind flow to spin power forward.
As CFD(Computational Fluid Dynamics) result shows, the drag is reduced remarkably.
TURBO™ VS Traditional Rim CFD Results
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
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.
