65 Aero Carbon Disc Brake Wheelset - Tubeless by Reynolds
If you're gonna go deep on deep-dish carbon hoops, you may as well not hold back. The tubeless, disc brake-equipped 65 Aero Carbon Wheelset isn't Reynolds' deepest option in the Aero family (hi there, Aero 80), but it does represent the ceiling that a lot of crit and circuit-race specialists balk at surpassing. The TT specialists and run/bike/swim crowd may disagree, but for the dedicated roadie, 65mm is about as deep as it gets. Before going any further down the aerodynamic rabbit hole, though, consider the freehub. 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 straight-on air resistance. In reality, you spend 95% of your riding time between zero and 20 degrees of yaw with a wind angle anywhere from zero to 100 degrees in relati...

Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River or enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
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.
