As Ironman Florida steadily approaches, investing in an aero wheel would only benefit my aerodynamics on race day. The quickest fix, and the one product that I have been told again and again to buy was the WheelBuilder Aero Jacket.
The idea is simple – put a plastic cover on either side of your rear wheel to reduce drag. The installation was just as straight forward.
I have a set of Easton EC90 tubulars and use them primarily for races only. The installation of the aero cover took about 15 minutes. All I had to do was take off the cassette and skewers. Then, align the two covers and place the plastic fasteners through each hole. When finished with the fastening, I spun the wheel to troubleshoot any spot that could have warped the cover. Make some final adjustments, double check that the fasteners are 100% tightened…and done!

I will be test riding this on Sunday, as race week approaches!
