We’ve been thinking – how much time could you save, each commute, each day, and each year, if you swapped your standard commute bike for a top of the range aero bike with the ultimate wheelset?

With time savings in mind, we put it to the test, and the results were significant.
In our commuter challenge video (link below), we established the pro’s and cons of various types of commutes by bike, but this time we thought we’d look at things from a different perspective. So, we time James (recognise him from somewhere? Link below) on his normal commute, using his normal bike. And then, we lend him a Canyon Aeroad with SRAM Red 22 and some super fast, brand new Zipp 808 wheels, and super fast Zipp tires.
Dan follows him on two consecutive days on exactly the same route, in similar conditions, making sure James does all the work on the front so as not to skew the results.
