New Nerd Alert podcast, episode 1: Go faster with aerodynamics made simple
As cyclists, we are forever chasing the elusive free watts of power, extra few kilometers per hour and a few less grams on the scales, all with the goal of going faster.
In this first mini-series of Nerd Alert podcasts, we aim to dispel the myths, understand the technology, and bring you the information you need to get more speed from your equipment.
The first episode sees James Huang and Caley Fretz sit down with Specialized’s director of integrated technologies, Chris Yu, and Professor Robert Chung (creator of the “Chung” method for at-home aerodynamic testing) to discuss all things aerodynamics and just how much it matters. Without spoiling too much, it turns out we’re likely all wasting plenty of energy and speed.
