- Would you like to cycle faster without having to train more?
- Have you ever wondered which seating position or equipment would make you even faster?
- Do you want to find out how aerodynamics or changes of watt or weights affect your next bike split?
With our aeroDATA you can experience all that and much more.
Use the aeroDATA to collect and analyze all information about your aerodynamics. The platform combines your collected measurement data with a variety of evaluation options; linking your scientific measurement method, your bike split forecast calculator and much more.
Regardless of the spatial distance to a wind tunnel or a velodrome, and even less expensive, you can autonomously measure and evaluate your aerodynamics. Find out how to become more streamlined and therefore faster.
By comparing the measurement results of different equipment, different positions (seating, head, shoulders, etc.) or other bike settings, you can easily identify aerodynamic optimization potential and find out how to save valuable time and get more speed out of your watts.
You will need a power meter, a GPS device and a flat test track to measure your aerodynamics. If you also use a speed sensor, the measurement accuracy increases. The video shows you the exact requirements and the procedure for a successful completion of the test. In addition, you can find a lot of information in the Support section of this webpage, or feel free to contact our team.
- The simplest aerodynamic optimization can be achieved by appropriate equipment. If you exchange your normal water bottles in the frame against aerodynamic bottles, with a high probability you will already become much faster. You can save a lot of time with using the right helmet, a corresponding one piece suit, aerodynamic wheels, good head, body, and hand positions and so on. The possibilities are manifold. Let yourself be inspired by the video for your first aerodynamic testing approach. Take the chance and easily become faster in cycling.
The process of a test ride looks like this. You have to do at least 2 tests per setup.
1 Acceleration: You speed up to your planned power performance (watts).
2 Start Recording: Start your stop watch, GPS device etc.
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 starting point for your inbound trip. Do NOT stop the recording.
5 Turn: Take your time to turn around.
6 Acceleration: Speed up to the same power performance as before.
7 Inbound Trip: Ride with constant and same power and seating
position as before.
8 Stop Tracking: Stop your stop watch, GPS-tracker etc. and save the ride.
9 Roll Out: Well done. Now, you can test other positions or equipment.
With our Garmin aeroAPP you can test fully automated. The app guides you through the test process, showing you the measurement accuracy of the tests and thus the validity of the results in real time and much more. Start your aerodynamic journey, right now.
