Convert your training wheel into a disc! Wheelbuilder can custom trim wheel the AeroJacket covers to fit almost any type of wheel. AeroJacket disc covers are easy to install and give you wind cheating aerodynamics at a fraction of the cost of a disc wheel. Custom trimming is available for all PowerTap models so you can train and race with power on the same wheelset.

Aerodynamic Data

Wheelbuilder spent a day in the San Diego Low Speed Wind Tunnel with the objective of comparing our AeroJacket disc covers to uncovered wheels and disc wheels. The obvious advantage of racing with a disc cover is cost, however this data quantifies the performance advantage. Click here to learn more.

  • A covered wheel has dramatically lower aerodynamic drag than an uncovered wheel.
  • Disc cover performance is virtually identical to disc wheels through the entire range of yaw angles: 0-30 degrees.
  • A covered 81mm deep wheel outperformed flat disc wheels in every wind condition. The covered Zipp 808 has less drag than the fastest disc wheel tested beyond 10 degrees of yaw.
  • A typical 30mm training wheel with disc covers approaches the performance of a flat disc at 7.5 degrees of yaw, but exceeds performance of all disc wheels tested at wind angles greater than 12.5 degrees.
  • The lens-shape on a disc-cover's non-drive side causes wind to pass around it like a wing, producing forward thrust. This effect is more pronounced on covered shallow wheels beyond 20 degrees of yaw.

Includes

  • Drive side: flatter disc half; has "align valve stem here" decal.
  • Non-drive side: lens-shaped disc half; has valve stem hole cutout.
  • 10 plastic fasteners (male/female pairs); 8 to do the job, 2 spares. Additional hardware is available.
  • 2 vinyl adhesive valve hole covers

Installation and Troubleshooting

Ordering: If your wheel is not listed in the "Common Wheel Types" drop down menu, select "Other, please specify" and indicate the wheel or rim type in the "Other wheel, specify type" text box. In the "Other wheel, specify rim depth" rim profile dimensions, please indicate the depth of your rim. Click here for info on how to measure your rim profile.

  • The covers might not lie completely flat when they are trimmed extremely small. This applies to very deep profile rims in excess of 80mm.
  • A rim height of at least 16mm is required.
  • Disc covers are not intended for continuous training use. Remove covers between races.
  • DO NOT use Loctite on fasteners. Loctite will disintegrate the cover material and cause fasteners to pull through.
  • AeroJacket Disc Covers take 1-2 days to fabricate. Please account for 1-2 days fabrication time when choosing an appropriate shipping method.
