WHAT IS THE STAC VIRTUAL WIND TUNNEL
Accurate, Affordable, Accessible Aerodynamic Analysis.
HOW IT WORKS
A 360° image of a cyclist is captured using an iPad and scanner over a 2-3 minute timeframe and sent to STAC for processing. STAC converts the data into a 3D digital model and performs an aerodynamic analysis with CFD software, the same software used by aircraft manufacturers and Formula 1 teams. Deliverables include CdA values, images, analysis, recommendations and access to an online 3D viewer to analyze positions and compare them with a library of athletes.
