In this episode I chat to Daniel Cain who is putting his university degree to good use in inventing a brand new aero wheel platform (AIR). As a keen racer he recognised the limitations and cost of existing wheels on the market and came up with the concept of a base rim with interchangeable aero attachments to give you the full range of 50, 70mm and full disc options. The discussion with Daniel goes into detail on the aerodynamic characteristics of deep section rims and the special modelling software that he has developed to design his different covers. More details can be found at (www.streamlinecycling.co.uk) with pre-ordering opening soon.
