Stac Virtual Wind Tunnel

The Virtual Wind Tunnel (VWT) is an exciting new innovation by Canadian startup STAC Performance, co-founded by Andrew Buckrell. It allows triathletes and time trialists to get a complete, accurate aerodynamic analysis done in an affordable and convenient way.

We start off the process with scanning which is the critical part. So we want to capture a good physical model of someone. This only takes around 2-3 minutes to complete. During this process you will be on your bike in the race position holding a static positioso we can reconstruct this model in 3 dimensions.

Once we have the digital model this will get uploaded along with other changes that you want to test out such as a different helmet, lower front end, narrower etc so that the report can be produced, see example here. You will be entitled to 3 additional amendments to the original pose which came be can be chosen by yourself of a joint discussion. Further amendments can the be made once the report has been received back but this will incur additional costs.

Let me know if you have any further questions or would like to make a booking

My cycling career started in 2005 when I purchased my first road bike and I was immediately hooked. Since then I have completed numerous cycling challenges including Ironman, Lands’ End to John O Groats, Mt Ventoux (all 3 ascents), London to Paris, the BBAR challenge which included a 12hour TimeTrial and more recently the Mallorca 312.
