For the first time the aerodynamics of a moving skater has been measured.
Aero tunnel measurements have always been static until now. But thanks to Red Bull, the Jumbo Visma ice skaters got the chance to perfect their skating posture in a whole new way.
Red Bull placed a tunnel in the Thialf stadium on October 4. By filling it with smoke and with the help of innovative camera techniques, it was possible to visualize the air flow around a moving ice skater. Actiflow will now start working with all the collected data.
It was a special day and another great collaboration between Red Bull, Team Jumbo Visma and Actiflow!
