I see a number of folks talk about the aerodynamics of Kinlin rims, but I have yet to any test data.

Is there publicly available aero data for Kinlin rims? If so, can someone please post a link?

I haven't been able to find anything, and I've been looking for quite a while now.

I'll keep my eyes peeled though..

Educated guesswork.

There is an old Tour mag online that tested a bunch of wheels and I *think* one set used the XR300 rim (because it had the same dimensions)... and it did really well, even with a 23mm tire.

But I think the XR270 (it's wider and rounder) would be at least as good, and the XC279 (a lot wider and rounder) would be significantly better. Rounded wide rims are all the rage. I can attest that my set with the XC279 behaves very well in gusty crosswinds, which is another benefit.

Agreed rruff. I think the 279 is definitely the most aero out of the entire Kinlin lineup out on the road. In crosswinds it's so much better than the 300.

what do people think of the aero of the XR-200 wheels? I've read in another older forum that it is quite "Kamm" What does that mean?

Kamm tail... Should make a good shape on the front of the wheel so long as you use a narrow tire... 20mm max. Not so good on the back side though.

The lastest aero data really favors a wide rounded shape. The XR200 is a fine rim, but unless you are really going after a weight target, a Pacenti or XR279 makes more sense.
