2018/19 RocketDev Team: Join us in reinventing athlete aerodynamics!
Successful applicants will become part of an exclusive group of cyclists and triathletes actively working together to develop the first direct-force drag meter, meaning wind tunnel accurate readings but under real-world conditions.
Body Rocket is dedicated to reinventing athlete aerodynamics by integrating wind tunnel technology directly into your bike.
We are developing the first direct force drag meter, meaning wind tunnel accurate readings but under real-world conditions. Unlike a car or aircraft, bikes can’t be completely designed in terms of aerodynamics because the rider is 85% of the drag, and each person is different.
It’s estimated a typical pro has a CdA of 0.18-0.25, while an amateur has a CdA of 0.25-0.3. What does that mean? At 300 Watts that means 2.5 kph, or over 1 hour it’s a saving of 3 minutes 37 seconds! Just because they have access to a wind tunnel.
We’re building a community to help change that. Real-time drag data means real-world understanding. Actual race data, testing time limited only by your own schedule, deeper understanding of CdA changes with fatigue, ideal setups for flat courses vs. hills. We could go on!
Join us on our journey. Be part of the team as we go through lab testing, wind tunnel testing and, finally, road testing. Help us shape this into a useful tool, for pros and amateurs alike.
Community Development – what does it mean?
As a RocketDev Team rider you will be part of a community which will help us develop and understand the data we begin to collect with Body Rocket. Body rocket is the first of its kind and is capable of capturing hundreds of data points across the riders body. With exclusive access to track testing and open road session the data you gather will be vital in us expanding our knowledge and refining Body Rocket’s applications in the real world!
Working alongside our coaches and engineers you will share your experiences throughout via our website and social media platforms along with exclusive RocketDev Team meetups during which you will get a chance to train alongside experienced Olympic athletes and socialise with your fellow members.
Body Rocket is 100% committed to reinventing athlete aerodynamics and your honest feedback will be vital in ensuring we meet the demands of our athletes and continue to push the boundaries of aerodynamic data capture.
