We started our windtunnel test with standing wheels. Then we saw that the best competitor fork had less drag than our F-Splitfork™. Obviously such a test is Non-Significant, because when you ride a bike the wheels are always turning. So we performed a second test with the wheels turning:

  • 7.44%
 

Final conclusion:

Drag is increasingly lower on the F-Splitfork™ as wheel speed is increased. The F-Splitfork™ has 7.44 % less drag then the competitor fork used in this test. The data shows the Ridley F-Splitfork™ out-performed the competitor's forks.
