Velo Science collaborates with Scott Sports SA and Team Columbia in designing Plasma TT time trial bike

Velo Science Limited, a company specialising in aerodynamic development, has collaborated with Scott Sports SA and Team Columbia in producing Scott’s new time trial bike, the Plasma TT.

The Plasma TT will be used for the first time by Team Columbia in the Giro d’Italia which starts in Venice on May 9 2009.

“The last 18 months have been incredibly exciting for Velo Science.” says Simon Smart, Technical Director of Velo Science and ex Formula One aerodynamicist. “Following on from the success we had with the Giant TT bike in 2008, we have taken bike aerodynamics to a new level with the Scott Plasma TT.  For the last 6 months we have been working in close collaboration with Scott and Team Columbia to develop a new bike in time for the Giro. It is a testament to our team work that it has been possible to achieve our objectives in such a short period of time. In parallel we have been keeping ahead with our wind tunnel technology, and finished the Plasma TT project in the Brawn GP Formula One Team’s scale wind tunnel. This has significant advantages over other tunnels with the open jet significantly improving accuracy in cross winds.”

Velo Science is a design consultancy offering engineering and aerodynamic services to the bike and other industries.  It incorporates Drag2Zero®, a protocol developed to enable professional and amateur cyclists to optimize their aerodynamic position in the wind tunnel. 

Velo Science has recently announced that from May 2009 it will be using the scale wind tunnel based at Brawn GP for rider optimization using the Drag2Zero® protocol, as well as for product design and testing.  For further information see www.drag2zero.com or contact Natalie Atkins on natalie@veloscience.co.uk
