Deep-section aero wheels offer some of the biggest speed gains you can find, along with your helmet and clothing. The difference between basic training wheels and the best of this group can be as much as four minutes in a 40km bike leg. In short, aero wheels are essential as soon as you switch from completing to competing.
With a rim depth of 60mm, this is designed as a do-everything wheelset that is adept at climbing and maintaining speed on the flats; a wheel strong enough to handle the Spring Classics, but light enough to inspire sprints out of corners.
With its advanced aerodynamics, it concept studies and months in the wind tunnel; the unrivaled crosswind stability saves watts that would have been spent keeping the bike straight, and provides unequivocal confidence for high speed descending.
Carbon will reduce flex while still absorbing road vibration. That coupled with it already being a lighter construction material, engineers can work with more spokes and rigid lacing patterns so that it can outperform aluminum in any circumstance. Every major tour winner for a long time has won using carbon. The only drawback is cost.
The combined weight of a tubular wheel and tyre is usually lighter than the equivalent clincher, so the wheel can accelerate a little faster.

A set of deep-section aero wheels will give you a significant advantage over alloy clinchers most are specced with.
These aero wheels are fast in two ways. First, their smooth airfoil shapes pass through the air a lot more cleanly than a box-section rim. The tyre is the leading edge and splits the air. Behind it, a deep rim controls the airflow, helping it to come together again smoothly. A shallow box-section rim can’t do this, so air behind it is turbulent, causing more drag.
Secondly, deep wheels aim to ‘sail’ on crosswinds by making the airflow follow the shape of the wheel as it passes over it at an angle, creating forward thrust. In this way the wheels’ own drag decreases as the wind angle increases, until they reach a ‘stall’ point at which the drag sharply increases again because the airflow detaches causing turbulence and an area of low pressure behind the rim. Wide rims enable much higher stall angles, often beyond what you’re likely to encounter on the road.
The power figures are higher for the greater 12.5º wind angle because the drag of the total bike and rider system is higher, even though the contribution of the wheels is smaller. Overall drag will always be lower at 0º (i.e. head-on or no wind) because the much smaller frontal area of the bike and rider outweighs the drag reduction of airfoil shape wheels and the frame at higher yaw angles.
It is possible for most aero wheels, especially discs, to have negative drag at high yaw angles, actually propelling you forward, but it’s slight so the net result is a reduction in total system drag. Track bikes operate in windless velodromes, so their wheels and frames tend to be skinnier airfoils with minimal frontal area.
