Body Rocket.

Real-time aero.

No more guessing.

More speed.

You’ve invested in the carbon bike with aero bars, the carbon wheels, the teardrop helmet. What’s left to improve? 

 

The answer is YOU.

 

80% of aerodynamic drag is created by your body: your position, your clothing and the way you move as you ride. 

The problem is, right now the only way to accurately measure your aerodynamic drag is to pay for an expensive test session at a wind tunnel or velodrome. 

 

Even then, the results you get under lab conditions are likely to vary significantly from those you’ll experience on the open road. It can be hard to judge whether you’re replicating the same optimal positioning you were shown in the lab. 

That’s why Body Rocket is a game-changer. It’s a device that fits on your bike, measuring drag on every ride.

How does it work?

 

Data collected by sensors on your seat post, handlebars and pedals are beamed wirelessly to a Garmin cycle computer, giving you precise, real-time feedback as you experiment with different positions, movements and kit. 

 

Then, after each session you can sit down and analyse the data on our app to identify incremental improvements. Get answers to questions such as: 

What’s my optimal riding position? 

 

Will adjusting my saddle help me go faster? 

 

Which helmet is more aerodynamic? 

"This provides a real-time black & white opportunity to understand what’s working and what’s not working, and that is absolutely fantastic!"

 

Yanto Banker, Former Pro cyclist & Founder of LeCol

How is this different to other on-bike aero measurement tools on the market?

These rely on estimates to calculate drag. Body Rocket’s patented aero system directly measures drag force, using the same technology as the gold standard wind tunnels.  

Our device doesn't have to make estimates for rolling resistance, drivetrain losses, and weight changes like other on-bike aero systems, which are all significant sources of error. Body Rocket has been validated through wind tunnel testing, where all other devices simply can't be.

That means constant, reliable data. No need to find a smooth, traffic free road with no stop signs. Ride with it all the time and understand the full picture of your aerodynamics.

“The reason I invested my money into Body Rocket, is because it solves the biggest problem that cyclists have."
