It’s like having a wind tunnel on your bike!

Newton CdA Wind Tunnel firmware key adds Velocomp’s exclusive power, aerodynamic (CdA) measurement and analysis capability to your Newton:

Snapshot Drag Coefficient

Want to determine your best riding position to beat the wind, or test the aerodynamic impact of changing your gear or equipment?

Your Newton will display a point-in-time, Snapshot CdA aerodynamic drag coefficient (CdA) on your screen whenever you coast. The lower the CdA number, the more streamlined you are. Try out different riding positions or change gear and let Newton quantify the aerodynamic benefits.  Snapshot CdA does NOT require use of a direct force power meter (DFPM).

Continuous Drag Coefficient **

Looking to establish your optimal combination of aerodynamic positioning and equipment to maximize power? Want to know instantly if you’re deviating from your optimum ride position?

When riding with Newton and a DFPM installed on your bike, Newton will display instant, continuous aerodynamic drag coefficient feedback on your screen even while pedaling!

Time Advantage **

How much time do you pick up when you go into a tuck?

How much time does it cost you when you sit up to drink?  

These are just some of the many questions that Velocomp’s exclusive Time Advantage feature answers–answers that are included as part of the CdA key.

Time Advantage measures (in seconds) the cumulative amount of time you’ve gained (or lost) due to changes in your ride position or equipment during your solo ride and reports it in real time on your screen.

When riding with a Newton and DFPM, your Newton displays in real time, on your power screen, your actual Time Advantage on your Newton screen.

Continuous Drag Coefficient **

Looking to establish your optimal combination of aerodynamic positioning and equipment to maximize power? Want to know instantly if you’re deviating from your optimum ride position?

When riding with Newton and a DFPM installed on your bike, Newton will display instant, continuous aerodynamic drag coefficient feedback on your screen even while pedaling!

**Continuous Drag Coefficient and Time Advantage require the use of both Newton, and an approved ANT+ both-leg direct force power meter (DFPM)

    Purchased the upgrade firmware for the Newton (wind tunnel / power stroke) Amazing. Dont know how they do it, but it works like a champ. This allows me to evaluate my ride performance and energy expenditure so I can manage my output very good. On my rides- all over 100 mi, this helps greatly. And its great to be able to actually SEE my aerodynamic info in real time! I told Boeing to call me if they have aero problems on any of their aircraft! The Newton with power stroke and Wind tunnel is the absolute best bike computer by miles. Money well spent.

    Love the windtunnel funktion of the Newton. You can learn – especially as a tt-rider or triathlete – about your best riding position and how gear incluence the cda.
