AERO 55 / 80 TT Combo
The TLR Aero 55/80 combo is a great choice for TT and triathlon riders who presently don't have the budget for an ELITE wheel set.
Rims are 25.5mm wide with 55mm deep front and 80mm rear giving high performance and minimal impact during windy conditions.
We have found for most riders that the 55mm wheel is the optimal choice for a front wheel and on the rear the 80mm dish provides great aerodynamic and centrifugal momentum advantage.
(Confident riders should consider using the ELITE R.70 front with the R.80 rear)
AERO prices are reduced through the use of TLR branded Bitex hubs. For an inexpensive hub the Bitex model is light, reliable and fast - so a good choice for a lower priced wheel.
AERO wheels come in either rim brake or disk brake configuration.
If you are using rim brakes, the high temperature brake track and high performance Swissstop brake pads stop you safely and don't damage your wheels.
AERO series carbon clincher race wheels are 26mm wide.
The 26mm wheel gives the option of fitting a 23mm, 25mm or 28mm tyre with each size having it's own advantages.
For most applications our recommendation is to go with a 23mm tyre as this size gives the optimal aerodynamic advantage. Additionally, when using this setup the tyre has a flatter radius when fitted and this gives slightly more road contact for better grip and a much more solid feel on the road without sideways tyre "bulge" movement.
NOTE. Some older bike frames have problems fitting a 26mm wheel so please check your frame before proceeding to purchase.
