Wind Tunnel Testing and video


Wheel Energy designed this new piece of equipment large enough to evaluate a complete bicycle (with or without rider), bicycle components (handlebars, forks, seats, wheels & tires, etc) as well as riding gear (helmets, shoes, boots, etc). With so much focus these days on reducing rolling resistance from tires, it makes perfect sense to look into other areas of the vehicle to reduce overall ‘drag’.

Wind Tunnel testing plays a key roll in preparing bicycle race teams for competiton around the world.
