Aerodynamic Testing with ERO at the LA Velodrome

ERO Aero Testing utilizes an industry-changing technology, the Track Aero System, which allows us to measure your aerodynamic efficiency in real time as you ride your bike. This groundbreaking system measures your CdA (Coefficient of Drag) as you ride and defines the optimal formula for your bike, your position, and your equipment. Read more about velodrome testing.

Aerodynamic Field Testing

Used for marginal refinements, aerodynamic field testing allows a rider to test small changes to his or her position or equipment in the field, such as a new helmet, skinsuit or wheelset. By testing outdoors in comparable real-world conditions, an athlete can better account for variations that may only occur on the road, such as helmet position, shoulder position, and visibility constraints.
