Aerodynamic Improvement Considerations With View-Speed Skewers

 

It is easy to view the aero differences between a typical quick release skewer and the View-Speed series 3 and series 4 skewers.

The S3F/R and S4F/R have patents pending.

As you can see the quick release adds drag to the bicycle front and rear.

With the front end of the new bicycles getting the cables internally routed and cleaned up aerodynamically it seems unfortunate to have the quick release skewer sticking out into the wind.

With the skewer almost flush with the fork their is less chance of hooking another wheel. 

And the View-Speed skewers are lighter than the quick release skewers.
