With movement, drag works against the cyclist. It’s impossible to eliminate this force completely, so designers aim to reduce it as much as possible. Aerodynamic experts utilize high-tech tools to produce the most aerodynamic specialized bikes possible. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) enables experts to simulate air flow across specific shapes and surfaces. With this information, the team is able to design the frame that best fits you. A comprehensive Racing Data Acquisition System (DAQ) gathers information about speed, power, rider position, and wind direction to precisely measure the drag. The team then uses this data to design the sleekest body possible. Experts also have access to a fully functioning wind tunnel that simulates various riding situations with movement and wind speed for testing purposes.
Frame design and materials also set specialized bikes apart from pre-fabricated options. Frames consist of various composites, chosen based on the type of bicycle. A strong heavy frame would be excellent for a mountain biker while a speedy lightweight model would be preferable for a racing cyclist. Aluminum alloys offer strength, affordability and are light weight. Various combinations will determine the final stiffness, strength, and weight of the product. After the frame is constructed according to material specifications, testing follows to ensure that every frame performs to your expectations.
Suspension and Shocks
The design team prioritizes suspension to ensure the smoothest ride. By isolating the chain and brake loads, you experience more comfort and better control. Whatever the terrain, the chain and brakes move and rebound independently. The tires maintain increased ground contact for added stability. The end result is less impact, which usually means less fatigue. You will also immediately notice that smooth rides are faster. Even seat posts are designed to flex upon impact, which helps maintain pedaling force. If you’re focused on downhill racing, you can put your confidence in special racing shocks designed to provide all the control and adjustability necessary for ultimate performance. With bump absorption and superior traction, riders will achieve impressive speeds on straightaways and corners.
Specialized bikes can be created for men and women in both road and mountain styles. Some products are also designed for multi-use, suitable for both off-road and road riding. You can explore BMX/dirt products designed for tracks and skate parks. With these bikes, riders can handle dirt jumps and street riding with ease. Turbo electric bikes are also available, offering an elite combination of performance and speed. Imagine achieving speeds of up to 28 miles per hour with electric battery technology while experiencing the smoothest ride possible. This sleek design and performance is sure to please even the most experienced cyclist.
