AEOX WHEELS TYRE DATA


Looking for more information about setting up your AEOX® wheels? See below for all the tyre and aerodynamic information. 

Also please feel free to use our handy tyre calculator to check what tyre pressures you should be running with your AEOX® wheels, on standard tarmac roads. Please use the tyre pressures as a guide, you can lower pressures for wet conditions or very rough surfaces, or increase them for super smooth roads. Happy riding!


Enter your weight in kg including clothes and helmet.

Nominal tyre width is what is written on the sidewall (actual tyre width will be greater when installed on AEOX® wheels due to the 19.6mm internal rim width).
Recommended PSIs should be used front and rear for time trial/triathlon bikes, and for road bikes you can decrease 2-3psi for the front wheel.

DATA

AeroCoach AEOX® wheels are designed and engineered with tyres in mind. It is extremely important for overall performance that you select the right tyres for your wheels, both from an aerodynamic as well as rolling resistance perspective. We have conducted extensive aero testing in the wind tunnel, on the track, out on the road and in the lab performing rolling resistance testing to ensure that our recommendations for tyres will make you fast regardless of your goals.


There are three types of AEOX® wheels, each with different characteristics:

1. ZEPHYR - CLICK HERE

ZEPHYR wheels are 78mm deep and the most versatile aerodynamic deep section wheel on the market. Incredibly stable in the wind, they can be used with many different types of tyre without losing any aerodynamic performance. For example changing from a 23mm Vittoria Corsa Speed 2.0 tyre to a 25mm Corsa Speed 2.0 has almost no impact on overall speed (0.1w difference), unlike some competitor wheels which can have up to a 5w penalty with a width that is 2mm away from optimal!

- We recommend that time triallists use a 23mm Vittoria Corsa Speed 2.0 with a ZEPHYR wheel (or an AEOX® TITAN wheel).
- We recommend that short distance triathletes use a 25mm Vittoria Corsa Speed 2.0 tyre with a ZEPHYR wheel.
- We recommend that long distance triathletes and road racers use a 25mm Continental GP 5000 TL tyre with ZEPHYR wheels.

The graph below shows how changing tyre will affect the overall performance of ZEPHYR wheels:

2. TITAN - CLICK HERE

AEOX® TITAN wheels are super deep, super stable and the fastest wheel we've ever tested. Coupled with an AEOX® disc in the rear it is the ultimate in aerodynamic performance.

We designed the TITAN to work optimally with a 23mm Vittoria Corsa Speed 2.0 tyre - there is a 2.2w penalty from running a 25mm Corsa Speed, but the 23mm tyre (as printed on the sidewall) spreads out to around 25mm when installed on the 19.6mm internal rim bed.

- We recommend that time triallists and triathletes looking for no compromise speed use a 23mm Vittoria Corsa Speed 2.0 with an AEOX® TITAN wheel.

Please see below for aerodynamic data against a range of competitors, as well as the ZEPHYR front wheel.

3. AEOX® DISC - CLICK HERE

The AEOX® disc wheel is the fastest we've tested, see HERE for an entire page dedicated to its aero data. There is practically no aerodynamic impact from changing to a 23mm or 25mm tyre with an AEOX® disc. Please bear in mind that due to reduced clearance in the rear of the bike, you may be unable to fit a 25mm tyre depending on your bike model. Please check with your frame manufacturer as to the maximum tyre width permitted - 25mm nominal tyres will spread out to 26-27mm when installed on an AEOX® disc.

- We recommend that time triallists use a 23mm Vittoria Corsa Speed 2.0 with an AEOX® disc.
- We recommend that short distance triathletes use a 25mm Vittoria Corsa Speed 2.0 tyre with an AEOX® disc.
- We recommend that long distance triathletes and road racers use a 25mm Continental GP 5000 TL tyre with an AEOX® disc.
