Saving You Watts

Go further, faster with the FLO 45 Carbon Clincher. This wheel was designed to save you watts by taking aerodynamics into consideration. Thanks to a drag-reducing aerodynamic profile, the FLO 45 Carbon Clincher ensures the watts you put into the pedals are not wasted spinning your wheels, but are used to move you forward. Explore the tabs to the right to learn more about how to shave off time and watts by choosing the FLO 45 Carbon Clincher.

Aerodynamically Optimized

The goal of making a cycling wheel aerodynamic is to reduce the drag. Drag on a cycling wheel makes it more difficult to move the bike forward through the air, and consumes the watts you put into the pedals.

The FLO 45 Carbon Clincher was designed to reduce the watts consumed by drag so the watts you put into the pedal move you forward. Be aero and be faster.

Learn more about our aerodynamic design process.

Rolling Resistance

The goal of lowering the rolling resistance for a cycling wheel is to make the wheel easier to roll. Rolling resistance occurs at the contact patch where your tire makes contact with the road surface. The higher the rolling resistance, the harder to move the bike forward, and the more watts wasted.

While this line was not specifically designed with a wide internal rim shape for rolling resistance, you can still benefit by changing your tires to create a smaller contact patch. We suggest using 25mm-28mm tires.

Total Power

Total power is calculated by adding the total watts consumed from aerodynamics and rolling resistance, with the goal to have your total power number as low as possible.

The graphs on the left show how many watts the FLO 45 Carbon Clincher can save you over a standard bike wheel, Mavic Open Pro.

TIRE PRESSURE CHART

Optimize your tire pressure for your weight, riding surface, tire casing width, and internal rim width by using the tire pressure recommendation table below. The pressures listed are starting recommendations. We suggest experimenting with your tire pressure to find what is the fastest for you and the roads you ride. Remember, being slightly lower is better than being slightly higher.

Follow these steps to use the table:

                        • Weigh yourself and your bike together.
                        • Find your wheel model.
                        • Determine your riding surface. This will be a pavement or gravel variant.
                        • Measure the width of your inflated tire on your rim.
                        • Find your tire width under your road surface type.
                        • Match your riding surface and tire width to your bike and rider weight.
                        • Use this pressure (psi) and enjoy your ride!
