The Aerotest

  • Get faster in one day!
  • 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, analyze 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 strategies or anything else 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. You can receive this advantage in only one day. The power and weight usually require a lot more effort.

Aero is everything!


Preperation

You need a...

Power meter

GPS-Tracker

Speed sensor with magnet (no hub)

1000 m route

Scales

At the test route you have to calibrate the sensors.

For preperation at home use our Guide


Execution

You are riding two identical tests for validation of one setup the chart and text describes:

Aerotest ablauf

1) Accelerating to your planned power performance (watts).

2) Start point: Start your device.

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!


Features

Our system for you includes...

Self doing aerodynamic testing of CdA-Value and Crr-Value

Fully automated with the Aeroapp

Wind gust detection

Wind calculation

Outlier detection

Calculation of measurement error

Automatic detection of inbound and outbound ride and multiply setups

Blind testing system (No chance to change the CdA)

Using of modern machine learning algorithms

… and much more

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

Get faster with planed testing

The simplest aerodynamic optimization can be achieved by appropriate equipment. If you exchange your normal water bottles in the frame with aerodynamic bottles, there will be a high probability this will already make you faster. You can save a lot of time by using the right helmet, a corresponding one piece suit, aerodynamic wheels, good head, body, and hand positions and so much more. The possibilities are unlimited. Let yourself be inspired by the short video to start your first aerodynamic testing approach. Take the chance and easily become faster in cycling.
