Video: Mavic, Cervelo Meet in the Windtunnel to Develop New Bike-Rider-Wheel Designs

FROM MAVIC: As you know, aerodynamic properties of wheels vary significantly depending on the frames in which the wheels are being used. Engineers from Mavic and Cervélo met to explore wind tunnel test protocols in which wheels and frames are tested together as a unit. In doing so, they hope to create new bike + rider + wheel solutions to optimize airflow around the complete system. It turns out that a combo of the right wheels in the right frame is faster than the sum of the separate parts.
