Nova2 aerodynamic testing performed using a real-life scenario testing protocol – The Lew-Ross Real World Tunnel Protocol.
We used the Lew-Ross Real World Tunnel Protocol as this gave us more relevant information regarding how our wheels would perform for a cyclist in normal riding conditions. At the end of the day when we all cross the finish line it is the performance in the real world that counts; that is why the drag-stall laboratory style head-on-only winds don’t really count for anything more than normalised testing conditions experienced in a wind tunnel.
The consistent success that we encountered over our competitors at multiple yaw angles coupled with reliably returning the highest lift coefficient at these yaw angles further solidified the proven scientific aerodynamic benefit of choosing to ride the Nova2 Elite Road Series. The performance was proven in real world testing scenarios through an independent aerodynamic testing facility in the USA which is what one should be considering if real world results are in fact the primary reason for a wheel set purchase.
