Reynolds Aero 80 Carbon Wheelset - Tubeless

Though Reynolds reserves its warlike naming convention for the Performance line, its Aero 80 Carbon Tubeless Wheelset is far more aggressive than almost any other wheel in the company's arsenal. Its formidable depth recommends it for the solitary missions: triathlon, time trials, impossible moves off the front with 50k remaining. It's built for those times when there's nowhere to hide, when the quality of legs are the deciding factors. It's built for the cyclist who is confident in relying on their own engine in the race of truth. At 80mm deep, aerodynamics are obviously the Aero 80's primary feature, but the hubs warrant a shout-out before we dip into the aero depths. The new Aero wheels mark a significant departure for Reynolds. We've come to expect DT Swiss hubs on Reynolds wheels; however, these are built with Industry Nine hubs, instead, which up the engagement factor from "responsive" to "virtually instantaneous." Going with I9 also means that the hubs and the rims are all manufactured stateside--the hubs in North Carolina; the rims in Northern Utah. But now to return to those deep rims. Aerodynamics aren't just about depth, of course--the science of speed runs, um, deeper than depth. Case in point: Reynolds' Dispersive Effect Termination (DET). DET Begins at the rim bed with a maximum width of 26. 2mm, which brings the rim up to the tire's width and creates a generous cradle to glue it to. There are myriad benefits to this design, included reduced turbulence, which causes drag, and increased lateral rigidity and comfort. The rim's deep dish is shaped in a NACA-profiled, tapered V-shape that ends with a sharp trailing edge. The Aero's shape smooths airflow over the wheel, and when that air passes the spoke face, it's easily reattached at the rear of the rim to reduce stall. DET also means that this stall-free sweet spot extends to 20 degrees of yaw--a full 7. 5 degrees more than the competition. It's rare to have a real-world circumstance of a straight-on a...

October's Featured Park
Arches National Park is known for its' remarkable natural red sandstone arches. With over 2,000 catalogued arches that range in size from a three-foot opening, to Landscape Arch which measures 306 feet from base to base, the park offers the largest concentration of natural arches in the world.
October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
