We buy aero wheels, aero bikes, aero helmets as part of our never-ending battle against drag. Nevertheless, the human body is the biggest drag culprit of all, so you'll be amazed what a little thing like reducing the air friction at the foot will accomplish. The Castelli Aero Race Shoe Covers DM will give you all the advantages Garmin riders like Dave Zabriskie rely on every time they click into their P4 Cervelo.Castelli has been developing these shoe covers for over four years, and everything that it has learned about cheating the wind has been poured into their construction. The Aero Race Shoe Covers have been cut to reduce the drag around the shoe and lower ankle. Their cuffs come up quite high (to the bottom of the calf) in order to increase the aero benefits. At the rear an aero mesh insert has been added to aid in the separation of smooth air. The covers will cling to your leg with the silicone leg gripper, but will not pinch uncomfortably. The presence of a camlock zipper at the rear of the Shoe Cover means you'll never be struggling into or out of this bootie. The Castelli Aero Race Shoe Cover DM comes in a sleek Black or White, and in sizes from Small to XX-Large.

I'm in need of a new set of drop bars, I'm not getting on with the ones that came on the bike mostly because the transition from the hoods dips before coming backup to meet the tops. I'd much prefer a smooth transition from the tops into the hoods. I've come over from mountain biking (had the road ... Read More »
Down to these two. Not a racer; just the weekly group rides. Avg in the 20 to 21mph range for our rides. I guess I'm trying to determine if the aero spokes in this case is purely bling. Blackset race is a bit lighter, and has a higher spoke count. I can get the CX-Ray spokes for the Blacksets b ... Read More »
Alright all you guys that like to "complicate" things with multiple wheelsets... ;) How do you decide which wheels you are going to use? Obviously the aero wheels for TT, triathlon, maybe crits.......but what about road races with a fair amount of climbing? In particular, thinking about using some 6 ... Read More »
