FLO Cycling – CFD and Wind Tunnels. Are they for Design or Marketing?

The goal of a wheel designer is to create the fastest wheel possible while also reducing drag as much as possible.  With the design of the FLO 30 underway, I was asked a really great question recently that I thought deserved some attention.  Does CFD and time in the wind tunnel really help you design […]

FLO Cycling – Cycling Wheel Aerodynamics – How Speed, Time, and Power are Affected by Reducing Drag

Note: For an updated version of this blog article displaying the time savings for our new 2016 model wheels, read this article.There’s a list of common questions we see from people trying to understand the importance of cycling wheel aerodynamics.  These questions include the following: 1.  Your CFD simulations and wind tunnel tests used wind speeds […]
