Minimize Drag

A wind tunnel optimization at Faster is the best investment you can make in reducing your aerodynamic drag.

100 grams of drag is = to 1sec per Km in speed!

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!

Data is confidential

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.

FULLY AUTOMATED PLATFORM & DATA CAPTURE

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.

HEADS UP DISPLAY & LASER TRACKING

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.

WIND SPEED OPTIMIZATION BETWEEN 5-50MPH

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.

3D SPEED LAB OPTIMIZATION
$700
The 3D Speed Lab Optimization incorporates all elements of the 3D Fitting but further refines position with the use of the wind tunnel. The athlete will become more aerodynamic without compromising biomechanics and comfort on the bike. All bike fit and wind tunnel data are sent to the customer in a report following the optimization.
BASIC WIND TUNNEL - HOURLY RATE
$450
Use the hourly rate to test how body postition, or equipment changes such as helmets, wheels, and kit will affect aerodynamics in performance. Cycling industry manufacturer testing of prototypes or evaluation of existing products. Faster takes privacy seriously and all data is owned by the athlete or manufacture who is booking the wind tunnel time.
FULL SERVICE WIND TUNNEL - HOURLY RATE
$650
Many athletes or manufactures prefer to have full support from our staff and use of the facility during their wind tunnel testing. The Full Service option includes: Engineering Support/ Data Compilation, Support with testing protocol, Full-Service Shop Services and Mechanic, Private Office with WiFi, Locker Room and Showers, Use of Fit-Studio Space, Use of in-house helmets and wheels for testing.
ENGINEERING SUPPORT / DATA COMPILATION - HOURLY RATE
$200
This involves any consulting time during the wind tunnel testing and evaluation of data with our engineers.
MULTIPLE HOUR DISCOUNT RATES AVAILABLE
