When Alex Dowz tried to retell the World Clock record in November, he put it on a version of the Hanzo Time Test bike, which had not yet been released by the Factor.
Special conversation with Bicycle news, Britain reveals its technological choices as well as its tactics and target power as it seeks to beat Victor Campante’s 55,089 km record.
The Doucesc time test of the 6,000-foot Auguscalitens in Mexico will officially mark the launch of the factory Hanzo Time Bike, which he and his Israeli start-up team have been using since Giro di Italia. . As a result, unfortunately we can’t bring you pictures of the British bike – it still only has a frame for it – but he says all the decisions have been made, the last few promises of what will happen are tested on the track.
On Thursday, the six-time British national time champions champion unveiled his strategy for the test, as “violent nitrate loading” angered him with berotoot bullets.
I either ride to Victor’s program, or it takes lap time to break Victor’s time record. And then, for the last time I didn’t have five minutes, and now that I have done one, I know that if I am in a good place, I may have 20 minutes left.
I’m not really far from it, I just want to break the record.
In terms of power, Dawsett’s experiment focuses on latency times rather than energy, but states that he has the estimated watt he needs.
I think the 350s [watts] Mark, give or take, we expect, that Victor was around the 340 mark and that I was a little bigger than him and that technology has moved a little since then.
He noted that the Coefficient of Drag x Frontal Area, which is an effective measure of the driver’s dynamic range, may vary between different wind tunnels, but it is easily aimed at improving each time.
“If I do a windmill session, then the windmill session is not about CDA, it’s about the number below the beginning of the session.”
However, for the European nurses among us, he put us in the normal range:
“I made many different tunnels and tracks and methods to get CDN and I got everything from 0.16 to 0.23. As much as we can, I’m around the 0.18 mark, but that pinch has been taken by salt. “
Dawset is a very serious driver of optimization, so he chose two special additions to his set.
The newest is the stunning ሮ 950.00, a new Aerococ Athena chain that sells for ኪ 60 / 2.4 watts (or 25 cm per foot). The second comes in the form of a 3,250.00 leather and oversized leather jacket made by the British company Vorteq. As we reported during the Giro de Italia Expert Technology Gallery, Dowstet has been using the brand’s over-the-top shoes throughout the year.
Dowsett Time Record Technology Choices
Frame: Version Factor Hanzo version
Base bar: Owned by Funk Hanzo
Aero extensions: Iroquois Ascalon
Tires: “We try to see. I have the option of camping [Campagnolo Ghibli double-disc track wheels] I got it from the last test and the HIV kindly gave me some tires. We try to make sure we use the best setup in Mexico.
Tires: Vittoria Pista Tubular
Tire size: “That depends on the wheel[mm wide tyre] Front and 23[mm] In the background. On HDs, 23, because they have a 28mm edge.
Tire pressure: Depends on tires and track
Power meter: “I have two different options. 4iiii We have to see if a particular track can do something. They work amazingly, we need to make sure they check all the boxes on the track.
“The other option is a Power2Max spider-based crank, and no other power meter works.
Finally, it doesn’t matter after the gun is gone, and that’s if there are quicker options no I do not Power meter, we take that.
Chain: Aerok Athens
Computer: Hammer head Caro 2, mounted under the saddle
Carriers: “Ceramic speed everywhere … I do things like I take out all the seals. Even though I don’t need it, it makes me happy.
Kit: Vorteq custom leather upholstery and oversized shoes
Helmet: “Probably HJJC. It’s the same speed as POC Temperature. POC is absolutely faster than anything, but as soon as you get your head out of that place, it falls off the cliff. That’s it. It’s very emotional for movement. But you can look around and it doesn’t hurt much. ”
“I’ve never tried Kask Mistral, so it’s something we do in a wind tunnel this afternoon.”
Dawset’s World Cup test is set for November 3, and the Belgian company Campanetes has promised to protect Dawset if it can win. However, current world champion Philippo Ghana also averaged 57.5 km / h in a 30-minute test. After doing so, he ended up competing for the title.
