Swiss Side Aero Tips

The Tyre Factor

Swiss Side has spent a lot of time investigating tyre performance because this is extremely important.
Choosing a tyre which provides the best aerodynamic performance is a priority. Clinchers perform better than tubular tyres. The sidewall profiling on the tyre is actually very important due to a complex aerodynamic effect called the “boundary layer transition.” According to our testing, the best aerodynamic tyre on the market right now is the Continental GP 4000s II 23c. The worst aerodynamic tyres are smooth with no sidewall tread. Clincher tubeless tyres offer lower rolling resistance than clincher tyres with tubes. This is important because power is power whether that is aerodynamic drag power or rolling resistance power. The best tubeless tyre we have measured in the wind tunnel is the Schwalbe Pro One 25c. Interestingly, the 25c has the same aerodynamic performance as the Schwalbe Pro One 23c, but with lower rolling resistance.

In Sachen Aerodynamik spielen die Laufräder beim „Gesamtpaket“ Radfahrer und Fahrrad eine entscheidende Rolle. Was macht Laufräder schnell und wie schneiden die Topfelgen mit 80mm-Profil der Hersteller DT Swiss, Swiss Side und Zipp im Windkanal ab.

Swiss Side Aero Tips

Aluminium Vs Carbon

For Aerodynamics, the choice of materials does not play any role at all. The materials play a major role in the complexity of production and the cost. Metals (mainly aluminium) are much easier and cheaper to produce. Carbon fibre offers benefits in lighter weight and more control on the wheel stiffness characteristics, however, it’s very expensive, with material cost and labour cost. Carbon wheels take a hundred times longer to manufacture than aluminium wheels.
