The WattShop service is an all-inclusive package that tests all aspects of your performance, providing you with a multi-variable model to analyse, predict and improve your performance in your chosen event.
Using bespoke in-house developed software, testing system and protocols, your aerodynamics, rolling resistance and power output will be tested. Each session includes your set track/wind tunnel time (2 or 3 hours) alongside an hour for brief and de-brief and a 30 minute phone call with your session analyst to discuss your aims, targets and session structure.
You will spend 2 or 3 hours on the velodrome or in the wind tunnel performing aerodynamic testing, where we can test equipment, clothing, helmets and position. Depending on the changes you can expect to perform up to 15 test runs over the 2 hours/20-25 test runs over a 3 hour session.
Finally, you will be debriefed and provided with all of your results along with a complete performance profile and model that allows you to change a broad range of variables and analyse their impact on your performance.
Testing is performed either on the velodrome at Derby Arena in Derby or in the Silverstone Sports Engineering Hub performance windtunnel at Silverstone. Once you have purchased a reservation, you will be contacted to arrange your booking. Once confirmed, you will be sent a questionnaire to complete prior to the test session, along with further information on what you need to bring.
Where booking slots are not currently available, reservation bookings will be put on to the waiting list.
If you require any information with regards to availability or further questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
DERBY VELODROME COSTS
Solo 2 hours = £800
Solo 3 hours - £1050
Paired 2 hours = £1250 (£625 each)
Paired 3 hours = £1525 (£762.50 each)
Note that paired sessions allow us to optimise track time with one rider on the track while the other discusses optimisations or makes changes to the bike. As a result a 3 hour paired session offers approximately the same testing time as a 2 hour solo session.
SSEH WINDTUNNEL COSTS
Solo 2 hours = £1100
Solo 3 hours - £1500
NB, the session registration does not confirm your session. A session time and date will only be booked after the full invoice (sent via email) has been paid.
