Conical drag Maximizes the large, wide line storage format Stores line without coiling Provides consistent drag torque Weighs in with incredibly low mass Force SL represents the worlds lightest full-drag true large arbor reel. The conical drag, first developed for this reel in 1996, allows the structure of the reel to maximize the large, wide line storage format pioneered by the Waterworks, without the mass of a disc-dedicated structure. The F2 SL can pick up line quickly, store it without coiling, provide a consistent drag torque and still weigh in with incredibly low mass.

Marketing would like for you to believe that speed is entirely hinged on weight. After all, anyone can make a wheel deep and light, but it takes real prowess, dedication, and genius to create a wheel with the aerodynamic profile of the Reynolds 90 Aero. Simply put, empirical testing at A2 has proven that no other wheel matches the 90′s low drag numbers or stability. The reason for this is simple. At Reynolds, speed is everything. Now, we’re going to be forward — the complexity of the Aero design is deep, but we’ll walk through it together. To start, one needs to understand the prevalent ideology in aerodynamic wheel design, and to do so, we need to understand drag. What is it? Simply put, it’s the restraining force that acts on the wheel when its direction of motion is counter to the free stream of airflow. Now, airflow near the surface of a wheel is turbulent by nature, and when it comes close to the rim surface, it becomes a turbulent boundary layer. This is the start of two kinds of drag, skin friction and pressure drag. Currently, wheel makers are attempting to harness the turbulent layer, reattaching it at the rear section of the rim. The reasoning behind this is that the system reduces pressure drag, but in return, the wheel sees gains in skin friction. However, this is viewed as a comprising trade off, as skin friction has around a ten-fold lower drag value than pressure drag. To maximize this turbulent system, we’ve been seeing builders create a constant, rounded edge at the spoke face. For those attempting it, it’s been viewed as a leap forward in design. However, Reynolds finds it to be counterintuitive. We’ll explain. You see, the science of aerodynamics has developed almost as a case of supply and demand. As aviation technology develops, engineers are forced to develop more efficient airfoil designs, and these designs take the shape of what’s called a NACA profile — think of a stretched out tear drop shape. In recent years, though, some wheel desi…

While some shoe makers view comfort as an afterthought to rigidity, the Fi’zi:k R3 Donna Shoes strike the balance between them. This doesn’t mean that the R3 forgoes a carbon fiber outsole or stiff upper, not even close. Instead, Fi’zi:k studied how to integrate each portion of the R3 in order for them to work cohesively. As a result, you get a shoe that operates as a dynamic system, not a long independent string of features. The R3 Donna features two hook-and-loop straps along with an aluminum, ratcheting buckle. This system allows you to fully tune the fit and volume of the shoes both pre-ride and on-the-fly. The bottom two straps control the snugness of the fit at the metatarsal and instep areas. These straps are best adjusted before you hit the road and left alone thereafter. The ratcheting strap is what dictates the entry and exit adjustments. The loading lever is made from aluminum that’s been mated to a stainless steel base. It has a double-click adjustment capability with a full-release mechanism at the base of the lever. Together, the three strap system eliminates any internal foot slippage that depreciates your efficiency. To evenly distribute pressure across the top of the foot, Fi’zi:k made the strap dimensions wide. The strap design allows you to easily lengthen or shorten the strap in order to precisely dial-in the volume of the shoe. Also, each strap has been crafted from fully-adjustable length sail cloth in order to bolster durability while maintaining a low overall weight. For an extreme control over volume, or simply to efficiently clean the inside of the shoe, Fi’zi:k designed the tongue pad to be fully-removable. To further control slippage, the R3 Donna has shaped the heel cup at the aft position of the shoe. This feature keeps the foot in the perfect position on hard up-strokes and while climbing out of the saddle. As a result, you’re powering the pedals comfortably and efficiently. This has been further heightened by a variable stiffnes…
