aerobody uses optical sensors to measure the positions of the head, torso and abdomen relative to the stem.
During wind-tunnel tests, velodrome sessions or time-trials it is near impossible to maintain a constant body position as the rider fatigues. Body position is the single biggest driver of performance¹. aerobody instantly alerts the rider to deviations in body position and allows correlation of positioning to aerodynamic drag.
Competitive cyclists can spend thousands of pounds optimising position in the wind tunnel, without knowing if they can maintain it on track. Until now.
