A wind tunnel optimization at Faster is the best investment you can make in reducing your aerodynamic drag.
Air accounts for 70-90% of the resistance you feel when pedaling on a flat road. By improving your aerodynamics, you could potentially shave minutes off of your time!
Your data is owned by you - we take confidentiality very seriously. Any manufacturer that prefers, can have all of their data saved on their own thumb drive and deleted off of Faster's computer.
The FASTER platform is completely automated for 350 degrees of rotation in the wind flow — this is unique. This means the athlete is moved through a range of wind angles without stopping a “shred.” Data is captured WHILE the platform is rotating which provides new ways to evaluate drag information. This is highly valuable information for a cyclist or bicycle component manufacturer. They receive a complete picture of how data translates to an ‘on the road’ experience.
A 50” LED 3D panel visually floats data and graphics in the athlete’s visual field. This allows for biometric feedback and road awareness presentation. Visual feedback is critical in assuring the athlete is in a sustainable position. Our laser tracking of a road center line allows rider’s heads to follow consistent reference position as angles change.
The FASTER wind tunnel is optimized for wind speeds from 15 to 35 mph (wind speeds relevant to the cycling industry) and the platform load cells are tuned to wind loads for bikes and riders ranging from 1 to 15,000 grams.
