ULTIMATE STABILITY – UNRIVALLED AERODYNAMICS – INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCE
Engineering at its finest. With industry first features such as our hidden valve system and high flange, narrow profile front rim brake hubs, the AEOX® ZEPHYR wheels take carbon wheel performance to another level. Tubeless compatible, full carbon clincher, designed with AeroCoach’s years of experience in CFD, wind tunnel testing and real world aerodynamics. Suitable for road racing*, triathlon and time trials – available in rim brake or disc brake options.
THE AERO EXPERTS
We performed extensive testing with the ZEPHYR wheels to make sure that you have as much information as you need, to go as fast as possible. See below for our comprehensive testing data.
ZEPHYR wheels are designed to be the most versatile deep section wheel possible. We have designed the wheel to be super fast regardless of tyre width, and recommend 23mm or 25mm tyres – please note that the installed size will be larger than what is written on the sidewall because of our wide rim bed, so a 23mm tyre will spread out to circa 25mm.
For time triallists and triathletes looking for the fastest option possible we recommend a Vittoria Corsa Speed 2.0 tyre in either 23mm or 25mm. For long distance triathletes and road racers ZEPHYR wheels combined with Continental GP 5000 25mm tyres are the best option. See below for the aero data for a front ZEPHYR wheel vs the competition (all with Continental GP 5000 TL 25mm tyres):
COMPARISON DATA – ZEPHYR + DISC
How much does a disc speed you up? See below for the benefit of opting for an AEOX® disc rear with your front ZEPHYR.
Part of what makes the AEOX® wheels fast is the custom stiff high flange narrow front hub (rim brake version). Look down at the wheel from your cockpit and the spokes disappear inline with the rim – reducing frontal area and overall wheel drag with no effect on stiffness compared with other time trial wheels. The AEOX® hub has been designed to provide top level aerodynamics in a stiff, race worthy package. Disc brake wheels use the AEOX® straight pull disc brake hub.
MULTI PURPOSE VALVE CUTOUT
An unique feature of an AEOX® wheel is the valve cutout. A custom valve cap allows for the valve to either stay completely hidden, partially hidden or exposed as normal.
LASER CUT BRAKE TRACK (RIM BRAKE)
Smooth and efficient braking with our special laser cut braking surface and AEOX® carbon brake pads. Please note that you must use the supplied brake pads with your AEOX® wheels.
All the AEOX® wheels are compatible with tubeless tyres and kits. Please note that tubeless tyres must be set up by a professional cycling mechanic.
Each wheel comes with pre installed tubeless compatible rim tape, an AEOX® tubeless valve, AEOX® carbon brake blocks and full instructions.
We can provide custom coloured decals for an additional surcharge. If you would like a custom colour decal with your AEOX® wheel please get in touch!
