3 SPOKE AERO WHEELSET
 

A wheel with fewer spokes and a deeper rim reduces the disturbance to the air caused by the wheels, and hence causes less drag. The modern 3-spoke aero wheel has comparable aerodynamic drag to an old disc type wheel, but has far less instability in cross-winds. The aero wheel set is also slightly lighter than the original wheelset by 450g as is normally the case. The cost of this modification is very high, but the improvement is instant.
