Great news that Timo Bracht will be using Smart ENVE System wheels again this year. He visited the Drag2Zero wind tunnel facility a few months ago to work on his riding position.
Timo is currently ranked No 2 in the Kona Pro Rankings, having had a great year last year which peaked with his 5th placing at Kona, where he was riding a set of Smart ENVE system wheels. He is doing everything he can to live up to that ranking and needed no persuading about how valuable a wind tunnel session could be. He was great to work with and we look forward to seeing him riding with his new position at his next race. Timo will be using Smart ENVE System 6.7 clinchers and 8.9s this year.
We are seeing increasing numbers of triathletes in the wind tunnel who are finding real gains on the bike leg of their competitions after a visit. Visit www.drag2zero.com for more information. More than just an aero fit, having tried triathlon this year for the first time, Simon Smart appreciates what is required, and looks at tuning position taking into account aerodynamics, power, comfort and with triathletes, the need to run after the bike leg.
