Breakthrough Patent US 9,878,745
AERODEFENDER™ Wheel Fairings simply shield only the uppermost portion of the wheel to effectively minimize overall vehicle drag, while simultaneously increasing steering traction for more predictable control at high speed.
• MINIMIZE Vehicle Drag for Unmatched Speed GainsSlice through headwinds; Rising effectiveness in stronger headwinds.• Enhance Steering Traction for Predictable Stability in CrosswindsReduce ground slip force, yielding more available cornering traction.• Reduce Cyclic Pedaling Fatigue by Slicing through HeadwindsReduce natural cyclic pedaling effort, yielding greater propulsive efficiency.• Outperform ANY Aero Wheel Against Stronger HeadwindsShift magnified upper wheel drag onto un-magnified vehicle frame.• Enhanced AERO Enables Use of Wider Tires and Stronger RimsEliminate most of the substantially increased wheel drag using wider tires.• Cost-Effective AERO Performance for Mid-Range Bicycles
Provides high-end aero performance to wider mid-range bicycle market.
Patent US 9,290,041
AEROCROSS™ Wheels with SPOKE FINS™ streamline the round spoke, substantially reducing drag on the bicycle wheel itself—even in the presence of substantial crosswinds—while providing unmatched crosswind stability and safety to the cyclist in gusty wind conditions.
• Laminar Flow MINIMIZES Spoke Drag in Windy ConditionsMaintain low-drag laminar flow across the spoke even in crosswinds.• Unmatched Crosswind Stability Enhances Pedaling EfficiencyEnables aerobar position far longer under gusty crosswind conditions.• Crosswind-Induced Propulsion for Enhanced Drag ReductionFin-generated lift in crosswinds propels wheel for greater wheel efficiency.• Outperform ANY Aero Wheel in Strong CrosswindsBecoming the most cost-effective aero wheel for use in windy conditions.• Essential Drag Reduction for High Spoke Count WheelsFin lift propulsion in crosswinds further augments high spoke count wheel efficiency.
