This video contains product placement from Hunt Bike Wheels. Conventional wisdom says that aero wheels are faster on the flat and lightweight wheels are faster on the climbs but exactly how much faster? Senior technical writer Simon von Bromley delves into the lab to find out! Brands often produce their aero claims based on testing by professional riders, at speeds that are often unattainable to the “normal” rider. What exactly are the differences in the real world, for a normal rider like Simon? Does rotating weight actually matter on climbs? Are aero wheels actually worth it? Thanks to our sponsors, Hunt for helping to make this video happen by sending us the wheels featured. We have the Hunt 60 Limitless Aero Disc and the 32 Aerodynamicist UD Carbon Spoke Disc. The aero-optimised 60 Limitless wheels use a highly progressive, ultra-wide design, with a 60mm deep and 34mm wide rim. They weigh in at a claimed 1,669g, which are light but not ultra light. On the other hand, the 32 Aerodynamicist UD Carbon Spoke Disc wheels are designed to be as light as possible. They use a shallow, hookless carbon rim which measures 32mm deep and 25mm wide. They also have carbon fibre spokes, which are said to be both lighter and stiffer than conventional steel spokes. The aerodynamicist wheels weigh in at a claimed 1,213g. Do you feel the difference aero wheels make? Or are you a lightweight wheels no matter what rider? Let us know in the comments!

given how slow I go I went with lighter wheels. Other reason was cost. £171 v £360 was a no brainer.

My opinion differs from these comments. I dont care about time savings over the 2 kilometer riding a consistent time. What you're trying to do with light weight wheels is to prevent yourself from burning the match. A lightweight set of wheels can turn that 30% switch back in a match-burning, or non-match-burning event. And that's what matters in the real world of bike riding.

What matters in bike riding is acceleration. That is why you dont see power lifters and body builders racing bicycles.

Interesting but it would have even been better to compare with aluminium climbing wheels like the Zondas.

The fastest is the rim brake version.

For me, not a racer, i ride/have many hills in front of my door and i love to ride cross/ gravel a solid climbing wheelset makes more sense ....

Can anyone tell me if you can use a tube in a situation where your tire is sliced and won’t seal? With the HUNT 32 Aero UD. With of course the tubeless tire. Just curious what you would do in that situation if you cant put a tube in.

Should have added one more option to this experiment using climbing front wheel and Aero rear.

I have 50mm deep wheels that are only 100 grams heavier than his climbing wheels.

Standing on the climb canceled any benefit the deeper wheels had when the hill was not as steep.

what wattage were you holding for each test? It's hard to tell if the results are relevant to me without that information.

Having been fond of criteriums and ridden hundreds, I can definitively say light wheels--at the rim and tire--make a huge difference in acceleration. youtube.com/results?search_query=%23anecdata #Anecdata

My Tarmac came with Roval 60 deep wheels, but the terror from side winds is a real issue , north UK, and had a diffident 'creak' when at the top of the cassette uphills, so replaced with Hunt carbon 35's for a much better all round experience.

flats are longer than climbs. and every climb will be followed by a downhill section. Aero is king on flat and downhill. light wheels are good for climb and ugly contests.

now this kind of test is really not that accurate. you're mentally trying to get the same average speed and without power stats it's kinda impossible to know if that's how much gains you actually get

Why does every single aero/lightweight test have the rider riding up the hill? Start at the top of the hill, no pedaling and just coast down the hill. The force exerted by gravity is absolutely constant. Easy test and very repeatable. For the flat test just use an e-bike, dial up the power you want.

Normal rider doesn't ride in lycras and jersys but in casual clothes.
