I was recently working on a problem to determine the number of watts required to overcome aerodynamic drag and rolling resistance at different rider speeds. What I found surprised me. While I know aerodynamics grows quickly, I didn’t know how quickly.
Our FLO All Sport and Gravel wheels were designed to optimize both aerodynamic drag and rolling resistance. The resulting products are the fastest we’ve ever made. To show the significance of aerodynamic drag and rolling resistance to you, a cyclist, I wrote this article which walks through the math and the importance each is to your overall speed.
