Numerous research has shown airflow around an object can be influenced by altering the surface properties. Under the right conditions, increasing the surface roughness can decrease the drag experienced by an object. This technology is used in both the aerospace and Formula One industries.
Using this knowledge, it is possible to influence the drag of a cyclist by focusing purely on a cyclist's clothing. In Michael Hutchinson's book 'Faster', he observed the best cycling clothing apparel could give more aerodynamic advantage than upgrading to a better time trial bike. CyclingTips also published an article showing that clothing apparel offers the "Biggest Bang For Your Buck" in terms of performance benefits1
The yellow and white regions on the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) flow visualization show the high drag regions on a cyclist. We know up to 70% of the effort you exert can go towards overcoming wind resistance, and that your body and clothing contribute collectively 80% of the resistance you encounter*. Our cycling apparel focuses on reducing turbulence in these regions. We have invested considerable time and effort (and money) to test our cycling apparel.
We are cyclists that want to deliver the best possible products to cyclists. We are committed to continuous improvement. Why spend thousands of dollars on cycling components alone? You can achieve similar benefits at a fraction of the price through the most advanced fully integrated aerodynamic cycling apparel on the market.
