Aero Fenders for Bicycles

Aero Fenders for Bicycles

This one will be a long development. It is about reducing the viscous aero friction. Therefore advanced complex aero marginal gain. The idea was to buy the https://nullwinds.com/ kit. But the cost and the weight turned me off. But than I had a JUGAADDD idea! 30 grams per pair. Cost ?(100% recycled). Estimated 1 kmh gain at 40 kmh.
