Making vast improvements to your Time Trial is easier than you think, Velodrome Shop guide you through some simple steps to improving your Track Cycling Time Trialling

Change your Aero Helmet

Traditional Aero Helmets are designed to achieve very strong aerodynamic performance in a linear position.

The nature of cycling means prevents us from adopting this position outside of a windtunnel.



Adaptive aerodynamics are designed to produce outstanding aerodynamics when your head is in ANY position, saving your energy and improving your time.

This characteristic promotes effective mobilisation of the bodys reserves without losing the benefits of aerodynamics.

The results of Casco's wind tunnel testing of the Casco Speed Time produced dramatically improved aerodynamics for Time Trials and Triathlons in comparison to the traditional cone-shaped Time Trial helmets that have previously dominated the sport.

Helmets following the traditional cone-shaped design for aerodynamics cause a huge loss of speed and aerodynamics with even centimetre variations in the cyclists head position.

These movements are impossible to restrict but the Casco Speed Time negates the effect of head movement and provides cyclists with the faster helmet ever produced.

Mavic Track Cycling Wheels

Every Olympic Medal and every World Title in recent years has been won using Mavic Wheels, simply the best aerodynamic wheels ever!



The convex lenticular body of the Mavic Comete Rear Disc Wheel provides exceptional aerodynamics with excellent rolling efficiency and superior rigidity for perfect power transmission.

Countless alternative solutions are available for a lower price but the quality of the Mavic Comete in comparison to other brands speaks for itself, after all every single World Championship and Olympic Title in recent memory has been won using this product.

The was first used at the Atlanta Olympics in 1996, the Mavic iO Track Wheel is the international reference on the track.

Time Trial Specific Tubular Tyres

You've got your aerodynamic wheels and are ready to Time Trial, however don't forget your Tyres.

One area most cyclists seem to attempt to save money despite it being the only area that touches the track.

Retail versions of the Vittoria Pista Evo and Dugast Pista Latex Cotton used by professional riders offer the same performance characteristics but with a longer lifespan.
