The patent pending Velocite Syn design is a result of a singular focus on high performance. The only guiding design principle was to make a road bike that delivers real life aerodynamic and riding performance beyond that of any mass start road bicycle to date, without sacrificing rider comfort.

“We use the “real life” adjective to differentiate from high performance in a wind tunnel or ideal test conditions.” said Victor Major, CEO and R&D Director of Velocite Tech. “For example, real life use of a road bike always involves carrying water bottles, and to date no bicycle design delivered optimal aerodynamic performance once water bottles are mounted.”

Velocite Syn frame design and profiles, in particular the down tube, were developed to achieve stable airflow even when water bottles are mounted on the frame. The special profile along with a recessed water bottle mount presents a favourable pressure gradient across a wide angle of attack range. This lowers the aerodynamic drag and minimizes turbulence.

Velocite used custom developed CFD software running on an in house computational cluster. “Having our own CFD software and hardware liberated us from continually watching the costs of our research and development, and allowed us to run many high level simulations and open ended investigations.”, said Victor. “CFD is now used as a marketing buzzword to signify that some high level research and development took place. Thus, it is important to note that not all CFD simulation is done equally well, and even if it was done well it does not mean that the results were used to significantly improve the product design. Often the bicycle design is driven by the marketing influenced industrial design, not functional design imperatives.”, also said Victor.
