SLR Disc Brake
I I really like my EZ Disc, it makes me go faster – Ben CapperTested out my new disc cover today. Well happy with it. Can’t give you any time savings data until TT’s next spring. Don’t know whether it’s as good as a disc wheel but it’s a fraction of the price and certainly looks and feels quicker than my zipp 808 without it – Giles HeamanMy new EZ Disc covers, fantastic solid covers saved a fortune not paying for a disc wheel, light and robust, can be purchased from Clinton Butcher – Ken Howarth
“After a last minute test on Wednesday night I was all set. Gears quite, gold chain on, Ez disc fitted!
The course of choice was the p164, a sporting route full of ups and downs, that finishes with a long drag uphill.
So was the EZ disc the right choice?
Yes! This week was not a fast one with 10km of head wind and no direct tail wind. But with my Ez disc on for the first time I managed a 15-20 second PB!
As soon as the bike hit the flat it felt mighty, cruising in the 40s (kph).
True the disc added weight and made the bike less nimble but that made it really nice and stable to climb in the TT bars.
Its not like any other disc wheel covers either, its stiff and strong, doesn’t rattle or flex.
What it is, is an opportunity to speed your TT bike up for not very much cash. Or for anyone that wants a disc to save some cash to speed your bike up in other places, like a better skin suit or an aero bike fit.
So in short, after no session I got a PB on a slow day with the only difference being the cover. Now I think its faster but before I do make any claims I will be doing some testing.”
