The 72 AERO goes big offering rim aerodynamics - The engineers in the Reynolds composite studio have given the 72mm the nickname, “The Kona Wheel”. This mid-depth wheel truly combines the benefits of the 58 and the 90, and is ideal for a triathlete on a rolling course, as well as a criterium racer. The AERO 72 picks up speed quickly, building momentum and propelling the rider forward, yet can handle windy conditions better than its deep-dish sibling, the 90mm. DET graces the rider with better cornering, decreased rolling resistance, and a more comfortable ride.
Developed using CFD and validated in the A2 Wind Tunnel, Reynolds AERO wheels remain in the sweet spot 32% longer than the competition. The sweet spot is the area requiring less effort/watts. AERO wheels with DET require less watts to move forward delivering an aerodynamic advantage. DET™ paired with AERO’s wider 26.2 mm rim bed results in a wheel that has an incredibly stable ride that steers with ease, is more predictable in crosswinds, has increased lateral stiffness, and a ride quality that will encourage speed.
The 72 AERO at just 1680 grams per set puts lightning on your bicycle. On a rolling triathlon course, wide open criterium or circuit course, the deeper rim picks up speed quickly, builds momentum, maintains speed and motors the rider forward. The 72 AERO with its deeper profile handles well in windy conditions and tight turns.
(DET) Dispersive Effect Termination - Dispersive Effect TerminationTM (DETTM) is a revolutionary rim shape designed by Reynolds Cycling, and applied to its new line of wheels, the AERO. DETTM smoothes turbulent, excited, energized airflow and re-attaches it to the aerodynamic surface, effectively reducing aerodynamic drag. It also challenges the popular perception that turbulence in the boundary layer of a bicycle rim is beneficial. Instead, the unique “V”-shaped rim is designed to minimize airflow turbulence.
