aerodynamics (noun) // aero-dy-nam-ics //:
A branch of dynamics that deals with the motion of air and with the forces acting on bodies in motion relative to air.
When you ride into a headwind, you can physically feel more air smacking your face and fighting against your pedaling efforts than you would on a calm day. Conversely, when you're flying down the road with a tailwind, you experience not only a lack of resistance, but even a surge forward aided by the breeze. But even when the wind isn’t blowing, you’re still riding into the mass of air all around you, and it’s always going to resist your forward momentum. This is aerodynamic drag, and it’s the most significant detractor to speed. You can have the most structurally efficient frame and the most powerful legs, but if you’re not aero, you’re not riding as fast as you could be. Our engineers are experts in the field of aerodynamics, and their driving force is to eliminate all of the obstacles that slow you down. Simply put, if we lower your bike's aerodynamic drag, then you’ll spend less energy and go faster over the course of your ride. Put another way, you’ll have more gas in the tank at the end of a long day in the saddle, ready to launch a race-winning sprint while others fade.
