STAPS getAERO

In perfect position against air resistance

getAERO - Reduce your air resistance!

The fight against air resistance is becoming increasingly important not only in time trials, but also in triathlon and road cycling. When it comes to top performance, time savings or simply optimum performance in competition, the aerodynamics of the athlete is a decisive factor - but always in combination with the stability in the saddle and the comfort on the bike!

With STAPS getAERO we have developed a test with which we analyze your individual biomechanical and aerodynamic properties and optimize your aero position in the laboratory and in the velodrome holistically. Whether you are a triathlete or a road cyclist, an age group athlete or a professional. We put you in your perfect position!

You generate the most drag!

The biggest "brake" in the fight against the wind is yourself! Because 75 to 85 percent of the aerodynamic drag is created by the athlete himself. So what good is the most aerodynamic frame, wheelset or helmet if your riding position is not aerodynamic? Based on our expertise and many years of experience in aerodynamic optimization in professional cycling and triathlon, we first analyze your biomechanical properties using BikeFitting, before we reduce your drag in the velodrome and thus fully exploit your aero potential.

Exclusive partners from the aero scene

We use only the latest technologies to analyze your aero position: with GARMIN’s Track Aero System we measure your air resistance (CdA value) in the velodrome in real time. With pressure measurements of gebioMized at the saddle, the soles and the arm pads, we check comfort and stability on your bike. In addition, you can test the best aero material with us. For this purpose, we provide you with suits, helmets, accessories and much more from our exclusive material partners.

How to find your way to the perfect aero position!

If you decide to optimize your bike position, we recommend a seat position analysis in one of our BikeFitting laboratories - in Cologne, Hamburg or Munich - before the aerodynamics test in the velodrome. In the course of such a fitting, we analyze and optimize your biomechanically best position using dynamic motion analysis based on video analyses and pressure measurements at the saddle, sole of your cycling shoes and arm pad contact points. Many factors are essential for an aerodynamically perfect position, such as a stable position on the saddle, an open hip angle, and no pain or pressure points on the buttocks, soles of the feet, hands or arms.

After the riding position analysis, you come to the aerodynamics test on one of the cycling tracks in Germany, Austria or Switzerland. At this appointment you bring not only your own bike, but also the complete aero equipment, which you would like to analyze during test day.

First you ride a few laps at a competition-like speed, in which we measure the baseline of your drag (CdA value) in real time with our highly sensitive measuring devices. We transmit these data by radio - as in Formula 1 - live to the computers of our STAPS crew.

After a first baseline check, we optimize your aero setup step by step and carry out new measurements over and over again. Lower the handlebars? Arm rests closer together? The cockpit angled? Thanks to our know-how and the experience of more than ten years of aerodynamic optimization, we can see which "adjusting screws" we need to turn in order to fully exploit your aero potential.

Of course, you can also "play" with the getAERO material. Test above all "individual" materials such as helmets, suits and one-piece suits. We always have the fastest equipment available - or you can test your own.

You want to become faster?

Let us optimize you aerodynamically!

getAERO "all-aero-inclusive"

This package is perhaps the most holistic and promising process in the field of aerodynamic optimization worldwide. In our "all-aero-inclusive" package we combine the biomechanical bike fitting PREAERO, which can be done in one of our laboratories in Cologne, Hamburg or Munich, with our complete aero services of getAERO fitting and getAERO equipment testing.

With the PREAERO BikeFitting we create your biomechanical basis for subsequent aerodynamic optimizations. All detailed components of the PREAERO BikeFitting can be found here.

During the subsequent aerodynamics test in the velodrome, we first measure the baseline of your air resistance (CdA value) before our STAPS experts then optimize your position step by step and check the progress again and again with new test runs.

If your aero position is optimized, we will be happy to test your own material with you, but we also have numerous "fast" equipment such as suits, one-piece suits or helmets from our partners in the aero scene on site available for testing.

PREAERO & getAERO fitting

You would like to reduce your drag sustainably? Your aero position still has potential, because you are not yet seated in an aerodynamic position or are even unstable and have to leave your time trial position again and again? Then the combination of a biomechanical optimization by means of PREAERO fitting (laboratory) and the aero-optimization process of getAERO fitting in the velodrome will offer perfect results.

With the PREAERO BikeFitting we create your biomechanical basis for subsequent aerodynamic optimizations. All details of the PREAERO BikeFitting can be found here.

During the subsequent aerodynamics test in the velodrome, we first measure the baseline of your air resistance (CdA value) before our STAPS experts then optimize your riding position step by step and check the progress again and again with new test runs.

Once your aero position has been optimized, you will receive a written evaluation from us with your newly adjusted bicycle measurements as well as your performance and time savings at different speeds and on various competition distances.
