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.
