COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMIC TESTING

Fast on paper

The TF1 design showcases a striking aerodynamic high fork and head tube tucked between the rider’s arms, which literarily opens up the entire front of the bike. This revolutionary design introduces three separate aero F-Ducts reducing drag around the rider.

REDUCING AIRFLOW BLOCKAGE ON THE FRONT OF THE BIKE.

LOWERING OVERALL BIKE + RIDER DRAG

IMPROVING DOWNSTREAM AIRFLOW CONTROL

PERFORMANCE TESTING
Letting the numbers tell the story

Independent executed performance test delivered excellent aerodynamic results of the Kú TF1 and validated earlier Computational Fluid Dynamic test results

Felt iA versus Kú TF1

Cervelo P5 Disc versus Kú TF1

TEST CONCLUSIONS

The answer to the question “is it fast?” based on the performance test was an overwhelming “yes it is!”

CDF VALIDATION

During the CFD testing the Kú TF1 showed decreased rider drag and increased bike drag in comparison to the Cervelo P5 Disc. The CFD results were validated during the performance test and demonstrated consistency

KÚ CYCLE VS FELT iA

The Kú Cycle TF1 demonstrated and improvement in CdA of 8% over the Felt iA in a straight swap of rider across the two bikes.

KÚ CYCLE VS CERVELO P5

The Kú Cycle TF1 demonstrated a CdA of between 0.9% and 2.2% of the Cervelo P5 disc. Considering the estimated maximum margin of error for the test of 3%, the result validates the early design stage simulation CFD results.
