Aero 80 Carbon Disc Wheelset
As the deepest wheelset in Reynolds' arsenal, you'd expect the Aero 80 Carbon Disc Wheelset to drop some serious drag and ride fast, and you'd be correct. What's perhaps equally as impressive is its ability to build such a deep, quick wheelset that's also extremely stable in crosswinds and come in at such an impressive weight when put on the scales. If time trials or triathlons are your thing, your bike is disc equipped, and you're looking for a no-compromise wheelset, few on the market can touch what Reynolds has on offer.
As with the rest of its Aero line, Reynolds uses a true aerodynamic shape, known as Dispersive Effect Termination (DET), refined in the wind tunnel and on the open road that's stable across a wide range of yaw angles, and actually provides lift, for an aero benefit that's truly remarkable. The shape smooths the airflow over its surface reducing turbulence and lets you get the most of the watts you put into the pedaling to the tune of 4-5-watt savings at 30kph over its previous Aero wheels.
The carbon hoops are tubeless ready and feature a wide, 19mm internal rim bed that provides plenty of support for wider tires, letting you run lower pressures for better handling, grip, comfort, and less rolling resistance. Additionally, the wider rims increase lateral stiffness for more efficient riding and a responsive feel. Reynolds leans on the hub experts at Industry Nine, known for its precision built hubs, that further maximize lateral stiffness with best-in-class 6-degree engagement so you can get right back on the gas out of the corners or at the turnaround point.
