Disc Wheel Valve Hole Covers

Will something like this sticker fit the valve hole in the disc?

I wasn't getting forum notifications. I'm sorry for the delayed response. Unfortunately, those covers will not fit. Our valve hole in our FLO DISC is 35mm by 81mm. We just use clear packing tape. It works well.

Take care,

Curious if you guys have done any aero studies of covering the valve hole versus leaving it uncovered?

veloracer01,

All of our wind tunnel studies on the disc have been done with clear packing tape over the valve hole on both sides. We've never tested without covering the valve holes, so I can't give you a direct comparison. All I can tell you is the numbers you see on our website are a FLO DISC with covered valve holes.

I hope that helps,

Chris
