Outdoor aerodynamic testing system (aeroTEST)

  • Test your aerodynamic (CdA- and Crr-Value) by yourself
  • All you need is a power meter, gps-tracker and optionally a speed sensor
  • Do it fully automated with our Garmin app (aeroAPP)

It’s time to become even faster on your bike. Use our high-end aerodynamic outdoor test with all GPS-trackers and power meters to measure and optimize your CdA- and Crr-Values. Use our apps (aeroAPP) for full automated testing and guiding. Visualize, analysize and share all the data with our online platform (aeroDATA) to become more aerodynamic. It tracks and sums up all your test data, offers you a wide range of evaluation and display options, a competition time forecast tool, social features and much more.

So why testing?

No training, no nutrition, nothing makes you so much faster in one day than optimizing your aerodynamics. Our outdoor aerodynamic testing system allows you to specifically test and improve yourself.

In the adjacent figure, it can be clearly seen that aerodynamics has a significantly higher influence than power and weight. It should be remembered that this advantage can be gotten in just one day. The power and weight usually require assembly.

In the following diagram you can see the effect of selected aerodynamic optimizing

The aeroTEST guide

All you need is a power meter, a GPS tracker and a flat track, and you can test your aerodyamics, your CdA- and Crr  value. If you need high precision, you can use a speed sensor and reduce the error by two. Look at the video, to see what conditions you need for the testing. We also have a help page and support, if you need any guidance for testing.

1 Accelerating to your planned power performance (watts).

2 Start point: Start your stopwatch.

3 Outbound trip: Ride with constant power and seating position for 1 kilometer in one direction.

4 End of outbound trip: Remember the position, it will be the start point for your inbound trip.

5 Turn around.

6 Accelerate to the same power performance as before.

7 Inbound trip: Ride with constant power and seating
position.

8 End of inbound trip: Stop the time.

9 Roll out: You’re done or ready for the next test.

Garmin Connect IQ App (aeroAPP)

You can test completely automated with our Garmin ConnectIQ App (aeroAPP). This will guide you through the test and show you all relevant data. The aeroAPP lets you automatically test so that all tests are valid and a corresponding measurement error can be specified. Also, do you get an overview of time benefits and performance savings. It’s time to get faster!

Social Platform (aeroDATA)

Use the aeroDATA to collect and analyze all information about your aerodynamics> it combines your scientific measurement method (aeroTEST), your bike split forecast tool (aeroCAST) and much more.

Far away from the wind tunnel or velodrome, and much cheaper, you can independently find out how to optimize your speed > become more streamlined and thus faster.

By comparing the CdA values and temporal results of different equipment, different positions (seating, head, etc.) or other bike settings, you can identify aerodynamic optimization potential > discover your speed.

Velodrome aerodynamic testing system (aeroDROME)

  • High-End velodrome aerodynamic testing system (CdA-Value, Crr-Value)
  • Fully automated with the aeroAPP
