In this month’s edition (2015 Nr.2) of both the english TOUR-International online publication and the german print TOUR Magazine, the Swiss Side Hadron 625 is featured as a reference aero-wheel set for a unique test comparing expensive vs affordable aero road bikes. The aerodynamic performance between 16 of the industry’s best aero road bike frames, with price tags from EUR 1’700 to 10’000, is put to the test in the wind tunnel.
The question asked by TOUR, is whether or not good aerodynamic performance can also be purchased affordably? TOUR magazine also once again, objectively compares the trade-off between aerodynamics and weight, as the more affordable aero road bikes tended to be slightly heavier.
The conclusions are clear… Aerodynamic performance always trumps weight and the wheels make the biggest difference! With the Swiss Side Hadron 625 and a reasonably priced affordable aero frame, you can have top level performance and speed, without having to pay top dollar!
