The latest in high performance technology: Aerocap Presta

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

You can sabotage your fellow competitors by turning theirs sideways before a race!

AEROcaps work best in high speed conditions above 70 MPH. Greatest impact is typically achieved at vehicle top speed. Your results may vary depending upon specific wheel configuration and other factors.

Porsche used to have a valve stem support so they would not deflect at high rpm. Maybe we need a version.

I'm surprised no one has said train harder instead of buying these. It's all in the engine. Stop trying to buy speed and spin to win

Why spend hours training when you can just buy this thing and put it on in less than a minute?
