Coefficient Cycling optimizes real world performance by thoughtfully blending three essential features – rider comfort, metabolic efficiency, and aerodynamics – into every product. This comprehensive analysis looks closely at how the Coefficient RR handlebar improves a cyclist’s aerodynamic position. It includes a  brief company and product history, a thorough overview of aerodynamic testing protocols, and test results.

Testing in the wind tunnel

Cycling aerodynamicist Aaron Ross developed the protocols, managed wind tunnel testing, tabulated the results and wrote the conclusion. Two handlebars were evaluated: the Zipp SL70 Aero and Coefficient RR. Professional cyclists Chloe Woodruff and Evan Pardi participated as test riders. Component-only test results are shared as well.
