Swiss Side Aero Tip - Gravel Tyre Width Effect

Swiss Side Aero Tip - Gravel Tyre Width Effect

Tyre width is an important topic for grip, rolling resistance and comfort. But what is the effect on aerodynamic drag? The results from our wind tunnel test show that increasing the tyre width increases the aero drag and reduces the sailing effect. The measurement data was very consistent with both the Schwalbe and Continental tyres tested. The differences per 10mm increased tyre width, were around 3.6W at 30km/h, increasing to almost 12W at the higher speed of 45km/h.

Therefore aerodynamics in gravel riding do matter. Find out just how much you could gain in a gravel riding thanks to our latest test report and analysis.
