The AIR 70-DB provides top level aerodynamic performance best suited for calm days. With their deep section 70mm profiles, these wheels are engineered to deliver maximum speed and thrust in medium to low wind conditions while maintaining stability if required for a windy time trial or triathlon.
All covers are interchangeable on the AIR BASE-DB. This lets you pick a setup for the day depending on route terrain and wind conditions. In general the deeper the covers added to the base rim the greater the free speed. This comes at the cost of stability in high winds however. We will be uploading a rim selection tool which will give you a breakdown of rim selection, time savings and stability.
Combine the AIR 70-DB with either the carbon or aluminium base rim. Adding this cover will allow you to completely change the properties of your wheels. Our AERO+ system covers the gap between the tyre and rim creating an overall wheelset that is much more stable with stalls only occuring in high crosswinds.
All of our aerodynamic cover designs have been optimised to reduce drag while maintaining as much stability as possible. We will be uploading our design process and aerodynamic testing results shortly.
