Mavic Wind Tunnel Test

E-mail Print PDF

I was invited to participate in observing this Mavic sponsored test, but opted out for a variety of reasons:  one of which was that I didn't want BTR to be associated with the myriad of things being written about this particular test session at the tunnel here in San Diego by journalists, observers, and other "hangers on".

Nonetheless, my interpretation of this plot (after the jump!):

 

 

...is pretty much the same as it was after observing a few of these sorts of tests about a decade ago: if you are using field testing (i.e, beta=0) to determine differences in wheel/tire aerodynamics..well, you've got your work cut out for you.
