The AeroPod is a high-tech cycling gadget that is designed to be able to measure the amount of aerodynamic drag that a given cyclist endures, allowing them to go about improving their performance.

Designed to be installed onto the handlebars, this cycling gadget requires new users to first carry out a short calibration ride, at which point it creates a customized user profile and uses it as a baseline for future measurements. All future rides then involve the AeroPod calculating the cyclist's aerodynamic ride by taking into account parameters such as applied force, acceleration and hill slope.

By using an array of sensors to measure and deduce aerodynamic drag, the AeroPod empowers competitive cyclists with data that they can then use to alter their performance and achieve improved results.
