Why are aerodynamics important?
100 GRAMS 10 WATTS 1 SECOND
80% of an athlete’s energy at racing velocity goes to overcome the fluid (air) to propel them forward, as the athlete increases the power required to move forward increases.
Simply said, for an athlete to double their speed requires 4x the amount of energy.
Applying basic physics to aerodynamic drag for a moving athlete, the reduction of 100 grams of drag equals .98 seconds per kilometer. Thus reducing the time required for the athlete to travel one kilometer by ~1 second at equal power generation. Translating to a form of power measurement, a 100 gram reduction in drag is approximately 10 watts of power saved, to travel the same distance at the same time.
