SWISS SIDE & RAELERT BROTHERS BRING THE INSTRUMENTED BIKE TO THE WIND TUNNEL

Tue, Jul 07, 15

In conjunction with the Raelert Brothers partnership, Andreas Raelert worked with the Swiss Side aerodynamics team in the wind tunnel on the Instrumented Bike Project. The highly accurate wind tunnel results from this session were then transferred directly to the measurements made out on the road while riding the Instrumented Bike in real world conditions.   A Quick Look Inside The Instrumented Bike:“One of the numerous functions of the Instrumented Bike is to actively monitor the rider position,” says Jean-Paul Ballard, Swiss Side Technical Director. “Amongst the array of sensors on the bike, the rider’s body position is constantly monitored, which is...
