As we're entering what we expect to be the final phases of our testing before heading to market, it's fun to see some of the graphs and data the Aerobar Edge provides. Here's a sample of one of the graphs from a recent low-key 90 minute ride. This graph provides an easy-to-read visual of patterns (this person obviously pulls out of aero about every 10-15 minutes). It's accompanied by a table that allows you to -at a glance - see % of and total time in the aero position, as well as how Power, …Read more
The Aerobar Edge made it's first official race debut yesterday at Ironman Arizona on the bike of Brad Cooper, 11 time Ironman finisher and 4 time Kona competitor. Data showed he was in aero almost 90% of the 5:01 bike time to put him in 4th place after exiting the water in 12th. He moved up to 2nd on the run before suffering a breakdown around mile 12 that resulted in a slow hour walk from miles 12-16 as hundreds of people passed him. Fortunately, he was then able to rally at mile 16 and …Read more
We are pleased to announce that the Aerobar Edge has now received both FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and IC (Industry Canada) approval. While this may not seem to matter to you as an end-user, it is a critical step required before the device can be made available to the general population. Exciting news!
More to come. Stay tuned!!Read more
We received some very encouraging news the other day and thought we'd pass along: the patent for the Aerobar Edge has been approved by the patent office!!
More to come (and we actually have a couple of additional patents moving through the process), but the primary patent is a go!
Stay tuned for moreRead more
A performance guarantee?!? Really? Indeed! We are absolutely positive based on our testing with Triathletes and Time Trialists that if you train effectively with the Aerobar Edge, you WILL IMPROVE YOUR PERFORMANCE. However, we realize this may be the first you've ever heard of or seen the Aerobar Edge. There are a lot of claims in our sport, but very few guarantees. This is one you can take to the bank.
The details are down below, but here's the short version:
1 - Use the Aerobar …Read more
Once you've completed your ride with the Aerobar Edge, it's time for the fun part: the Aeronalysis! Simply download your file and you can analyze to your heart's content. Here is a peek at just some of the data and graphs you'll be able to review...
The Aero Overview gives you a quick glance at the % of your ride and the total time you spent in the aero position (in the example above - 83% and 2:40:33). It's your "aero-at-a-glance" chart. We also have a more detailed table ( …Read more
As triathletes, we are part of a sport that doesn't come cheap. Unless, of course, we compare it to the cost of inactivity - but that's a discussion for a different day. The fact is, it costs money to compete, and very few of us have unlimited funds with which to work. So the question comes down to this: "What are the best investments I can make to get faster?"
You've seen the cost of the Aerobar Edge. You've also likely plugged your own numbers into our intriguing Aero Quotient (AQ) …Read more
An interesting lesson came to light during our drive from Colorado to the start of the Race Across America in Oceanside, CA. We are driving 2 Ford Explorers. Same model, same year, same everything - EXCEPT one is aero (no bikes on roof rack) and the other is non-aero (2 bikes on roof). We all know that makes a difference in fuel economy, but interestingly, it makes a significant difference! Upon each fuel re-fill, the "non-aero" bike required 10-15% more fuel!
This is a great reminder of …Read more
