Velosense was founded in 2017 by Formula One Aerodynamicists John Buckley and Barnaby Garrood
Combining Formula One technology with the very latest in microsensor technology, Velosense have created a device for measuring a cyclists drag in real-time, in real-world conditions.
The cycling industry - both professional and amateur - is increasingly making use of a wide array of technology and data to improve performance. Understanding and optimising power output is at the forefront of this, but as yet there has been no accurate or commercial solution to measure wind resistance, which can account for up to 95% of the total power expended by the cyclist.
After three years of development using computational fluid dynamics, wind tunnel testing, and real-world experimentation, a completely novel aerodynamic probe design was created, and Velosense Ltd was formed to take these developments to a commercial market.
