This is a demonstration of the use of our Track Aero System to test helmets for the BMC Racing Team. The work was done with our partner from the world renowned Mapei Sports Service, Dr. Andrea Morelli, and the BMC Racing Team at the Valencia Velodrome.
Jim Manton, owner of ERO Sports, launched the new service during a press launch at the VELO Sports Center on March 5th and 6th. The service is based on some cutting-edge technology called the Track Aero System, developed by Alphamantis, that allows a positioning coach to evaluate the aerodynamic efficiency of a given position or gear.
In November 2012, a group of over 30 sports scientists, aerodynamicists, bicycle manufacturing engineers, and elite cycling coaches gathered at the VELO Sports Center in Carson, CA to attend a symposium called, The LA Aero “Thing”. The by-invitation-only symposium was hosted by the VELO Sports Center and Alphamantis Technologies to demonstrate the ability to collect real-time drag area (CdA) on a rider going around the track.
More details will be available soon, but for now, enjoy the view from a 3d RC quadcopter. Note: if you don’t have a 3D stereo viewer or glasses, you can just turn off the 3D in the bottom right toolbar of the YouTube frame.
