Wind tunnel testing is one of the most cost effective ways of improving your performance. An average rider travelling at 40 KPH will have 2kg of drag pulling him/her backwards. You can train hard to produce more power to overcome this, you can spend a fortune on equipment which will itself be generating about 500 grams of drag, or you can optimize your body position in a wind tunnel… which may be the single best way of reducing drag and increasing performance.
We have now analysed the position of over 250 cyclists in the wind tunnel and have a proven track record with World Champions and amateurs alike. It is not unusual for us to find a 20% improvement in performance for those visiting the wind tunnel for the first time. When you consider that this could cost you [x%] of the cost of a new bike, visiting us in the wind tunnel is one of the most cost effective ways to make you go faster…….
Drag2Zero wind tunnel testing for cyclists operates from the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One wind tunnel in Brackley, Northamptonshire.
