Best Aerodynamic Innovation
1. Cervélo P5
Cervélo squashed the shortcomings of its last tri bike by building the $6,000 P5 for ride quality, storage and realistic fit. It’s a Cervélo, so you know it’s aero.
2. Mavic CXR80 wheel
Mavic used a plastic bumper to smoothly integrate the rim and the tire, helping this $2,800 wheel-and-tire set excel in wind tunnel testing against some of the best.
3. Giro Air Attack helmet
Created to split the difference between aero and road, the $240 Air Attack creates less drag than road helmets and cools better than full aero alternatives.
