The TLR Aero 55's are for road riders who want to go a "little deeper" with their carbon wheels and possibly for a small triathlete worried about going too deep on their TT bike
(If you are a small person who wants a setup for a TT bike talk to us about matching a 45mm front with a 55mm rear for a custom TT Combo.)
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.
