... the standard model favors a disc wheel with a lenticular shape to smooth out the air flow, but this design is also a response to the restrictions imposed on traditional dropout spacings.. so I could imagine that at speed, you could see improved aerodynamics as air moved over this spinning surface... but I suspect that it would require sustained high speed to overcome a weight penalty... Don't know the history of the wheel.

Looks to me like it could be a fairing for the crank arms/pedals. It might work. Interesting.
