Turning wheel aerodynamics upside down.

Reynolds is using what it calls Dispersive Effect Termination (DET) on the Aero 58 Wheelset to eliminate the drag-increasing balloon effect caused by tires being wider than rims. This delivers an aerodynamic benefit, increases lateral rigidity, increases your comfort, and decreases rolling resistance. The Aero focuses on mitigating turbulence, not accepting it like other manufacturers do. Testing performed at the A2 Wind Tunnel shows the Aero experiencing less drag in watts at 30.75mph, at every conceivable yaw angle (0-18 degrees), than any offerings from Zipp, ENVE, HED, and Easton.

This means that the Aero's handling "sweet spot" is extended to a window of 7.5 degrees higher than the competition. One of the most amazing things about this new design is that as you go faster you don’t have to exert as much energy to propel yourself forward—the design starts to feed off the drag itself.

Reynolds believes that every wheel needs to follow four engineering guidelines. The wheel must be lightweight, yet structurally sound. It must reduce turbulent airflow in order to create a low-drag system. The aerodynamic efforts cannot compromise the steering and handling of the bike, and the wheel must generate an aerodynamic advantage from its lift-drag ratio.

Great Wheel set

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've owned the Aero 58's for a little over a year. They have been exceptional. Rugged, fast and stable. My first bike was a Fuji GranFondo 2.1 and the bike fit expert at Faster in Scottsdale recommended the Aero 58's. I had been using the Dura Ace C35's. The Aero 58's are actually lighter than the C35's and incredibly smooth riding. I'm a large rider, 6'4" and 90kg. These wheels are extremely stable in crosswinds up to 25mph. I've only felt a slight push at the front with very strong wind gusts we sometimes get in the Phoenix area.
The only downside of these wheels versus my C35's are in downhill braking. The Reynolds stop well enough but as the braking surface heats up on steep downhill sections requiring lots of braking, the brake squeal becomes very loud.

As others have mentioned it takes a few minutes to reset the brake calipers with the Reynolds pads and adjust for the wider rims each time I change wheels.

That said, I would not trade my Aero 58's and use them for 80% of my riding. I've recently upgraded to a Pinarello Dogma F8 and am anxious to see how the Reynolds ride with this bike.

In short, amazing. Ermugerd. I've had the opportunity to demo the 58 Aeros a few times, and two things really stand out: These wheels are just ridiculously, almost shockingly fast. And they are hands down the most stable aero wheel I've ever ridden in cross winds.

Off the line, they wind up quickly, especially for such a deep rim, and once they get up to speed they just want to keep rolling. It's noticeable on flats for sure, and kind of punches you in the face on descents. I'm a tiny climber with an affinity for compact gearing, so going downhill fast isn't exactly in my wheelhouse without a lot of effort, but these wheels are like rockets. They allowed me to keep up with, and coast past (!!!) much larger riders on some screaming descents that had my little 50T chainring completely spun out. Even on other similarly deep wheels, this doesn't happen. People noticed, and it was awesome.

In the wind, these wheels are unbelievably stable. Again, tiny climber means getting buffeted around a lot in the wind, so usually wheels this deep are off the table for me on windy days. Not so with these. They managed a particularly windy day in the Southern Utah desert beautifully. You can feel the wind push, of course, but the front wheel just stays true. No weird wheel wobble or frantic counter steering to stay on the road, just solid, confident lines.

Also, they corner on rails. I paired them with Vittoria G+ Corsa tires, and would love to rock that combo on a super technical crit course.

I was so impressed with Reynolds' design that after just three days of test riding on the 58 Aeros, I sent in an order for two sets of 46 Aeros (having one set in a household of two cyclists just wasn't going to end well). Same overall characteristics and awesomeness as the 58, just a little bit shallower rim depth to serve as an all-around daily wheelset in the mountains. The 58s can definitely hold their own on the big climbs though, so if I lived somewhere slightly less mountainous or end up with a second set of wheels, these are at the top of the list.


Stiff, check. Fast, check.

The Reynolds 58 Aeros are an amazing wheelset. I've ridden these quite a bit and have been impressed with how stiff they are. Stand up and go. I also tend to ride 'stupid' and find myself hitting potholes and things I shouldn't be riding over. I've put 5k miles on these and have not had to touch them yet. Straight as an arrow. The Braking surface is exceptional and when you want to stop- you'll stop. High quality hubs (DT 240s) put the icing on the cake. If you are considering a fast wheel- try the Reynolds, you'll love them.

Hit me up with any questions!

Exactly what you need!

Having ridden and owned wheels from every major manufacturer around right now, Reynolds makes the only wheels that make my bikes feel like home.

The Aero 58 is the best mid-deep section wheel out there; beyond being stiffer and lighter than everything else in this category, they also handle far better than any competitor.

Add to all of this, DT Swiss 240 hub internals, and you have one of, if not the best wheelset money can buy.

Hoooo Waaaa! Hooo Waaa!

Upgraded to a set of Reynolds 58 Aero's on a 2-13 Trek Madone 5.2. I'm Running 700 x 23 Continental Gatorskins because I primarily ride in the west Phoenix desert and deal with cactus spikes. The Gatorskins have been flawless. A pure race tire will shave a tad more weight and add some performance at race speeds but Ill take the trade in outright flat protection.

The bike and ride have been totally transformed. In addition to a noticeable significant weight savings from the already decent stock wheels, there is also a noticeable difference in speed. Although these are are very deep wheels cross winds seem to affect them less than the stock ones. The stock Reynolds free hub on this set is set up for SRAM/Shimano 11 speed cassette. My particular 2013 Madone 5.2 runs a 10 speed. I am running an 11/25. This set up requires the use of a 1mm spacer. All carbon wheels require carbon specific brake pads. After changing out the brake pads both calipers required readjusting to accommodate the 58 Aero's slightly different dimensions. The whole process took 30 minutes. Carbon wheels are not a necessity and are likely the most expensive upgrade one does for a bike. But if you are serious about your riding and bike regardless, this is the one upgrade that will do more for your bikes outright performance than anything else. Wether you race or not these wheels are worth every dime!

Hoooo Waaaa!
Hooo Waaa!

Whats Your weight and would You still recommend these wheels after 2 years? :)
