The advantages and disadvantages of an Aero wheel set

When it comes to aerodynamics, wheels play a decisive role, but only at high speeds from around 40 km/h. Rim height and aerodynamics are inseparably linked. The high rim dissipates the airflow better, thus ensuring less drag and you can put more speed on the road. Additionally every racing bike with high-profile wheels looks faster and more aggressive and becomes a real eye-catcher on the road. High profile wheels are the epitome of a fast and beautiful aero or time trial bike.

A disadvantage of these wheels, however, is that the height of the rim makes them more sensitive to strong crosswinds. Furthermore, the weight often increases because the wheel has a higher rim.

The high art is to find the perfect mix and balance between handling, weight, aerodynamics and wind sensitivity. Every manufacturer finds his own way here and implements his own standards and ideas of the perfect wheel.

Modern aerodynamic carbon high profile rims not only have lower air resistance, but also possess a number of other properties:

  • Low susceptibility of the wheelsets to cross winds and gusts
  • Reduced air resistance with lateral inflow up to the gliding effect (possibility of propulsion)
  • Very stiff wheelset due to new construction compared to the predecessor, optimized carbon layer structure and laminated spokes
  • Good braking behaviour and longer wheel life due to local laminate reinforcement on the brake tracks
  • Very good braking performance of the DISC version, not least thanks to the innovative pentagon hub
  • Better steering behaviour and improved aerodynamics compared to the previous model
  • Light weight despite high rim
  • The models FERNWEG C 63, FERNWEG C 85, FERNWEG T 63, FERNWEG T 85, FERNWEG EVO 63 and FERNWEG EVO 85 are UCI-compliant (comply with the applicable UCI rules)
