AERO 72/90 Mixed Set

A New Way of Thinking

Reynolds is pleased to offer its AERO Wheels in Mixed Sets. The AERO 72/90 set combines the best of aerodynamics, stability, and stiffness. The DET™ shape ensures low drag while providing superb handling in crosswinds. The unique combination of shallow rim depth in the front and deeper depth in the rear allows racers to roll almost effortlessly on courses while maintaining maximum steering control.

Reynolds Racing Design Hubs with DT Swiss 240 Internals.

Available in Clincher and Tubular.

MSRP:
$2930

Technology

CR6 (Carbon Rim 6) is the precise method of assigning different carbon fiber and lay-ups to6 rim regions.

Reynolds specifies type of fiber, epoxy and resin adjusting the specs to achieve the perfect tensile strength, stiffness and elongation for each rim model.

Each batch is certified according to Reynolds’ specifications.

CTg stands for Cryogenic Glass Transition, a patented braking system developed by Reynolds.

The two components are Reynolds' proprietary Cryo-Blue Power polymer brake pads and hybrid carbon-fiber laminate (CTg brake track). With CTg, braking temperatures are 100*F (38*C) cooler than with other technologies.

BWI stands for Brake Wear Indicator. It is a 10mm wide red line that Reynolds embeds into the brake track.

The indicator, centered over the valve hole on both sides of the rim, becomes visible when excessive wear has occurred to indicate that the wheel needs replacing.

DET smoothes turbulent, excited, energized airflow and re-attaches it to the aerodynamic surface, effectively reducing aerodynamic drag. DET is Reynolds’ superior aerodynamic technology used on RZR 92 and all AERO wheels.

ISH is a “step” contour at the outer perimeter of the clincher hook that helps create a predictable airflow over the surface of the rim. It also increases the lateral stiffness of the wheel. ISH is used on 46 AERO, 58 AERO, and 72 AERO.

AERO 72/90 Mixed Set

REYNOLDS AERO WHEELS BEST ON TEST

Design-wise, the first thing you notice is that these have a far sharper edge to the rim than anything else on test. What you can’t see is that the rim profile of both is subtly different, too, while the baby of the range, the aero 58, has a third different profile. Out on the road, these met our expectations and some. They’re just fast.

But what impressed us most was the sure handling, even in poor conditions. They’re remarkably steady in the wind – you’ll still find yourself being blown around, purely because of the depth – but they’re predictable and you don’t end up riding along worrying that every gust is going to result in an impromptu meeting with the floor.

“Crosswind unpredictability was a thing of the past with these wheels, even gusts were only felt as minor nudges in the bars, something that cannot be said for their competitors.”

Winter PressCamp Part II

Reynolds Cycling was the first company to put a carbon clincher into large-scale production. That gave them an advantage in terms of market penetration but it also meant that early adopters satisfied with their wheels didn’t necessarily progress to their newer technology. I’m beginning with this shot of the inside of the rim to show just how clean their molding is. I’ve seen a lot of carbon wheels and that level of precision at the inner wall and bead hook isn’t common. http://redkiteprayer.com/index.php?s=reynolds
