All research is under the direction of Cyclologic Founder & CEO Paraic McGlynn
"The Cyclologic 'SWOPED' handlebar research project will unpack all the science behind why Coefficient's sweep + slope design are revelatory for our test riders and the burgeoning Wave community. We are highly impressed by Coefficient’s focus on validation and interest in Cycling Science and their thirst for truth rather than marketing hyperbole.
"We are in the process of studying this new cockpit ecosystem in our MOTIONMETRIQ lab. Coefficient Cycling leadership has given us a clear design brief on the underlying neuromuscular reasons driving the rider feedback already received. We are looking forward to providing our findings as we progress through controlled, science-based rider testing. There’s more to learn about the Wave bar and why it improves rider comfort and performance. We are rolling up our sleeves with the Coefficient team to get answers and drive future innovation.”

As Paraic mentioned, preliminary testing results are impressive. Cyclologic's handlebar research project will measure a variety of performance influencers including metabolic and respiratory efficiency, rider stability, aerodynamics and more.
Paraic, aerodynamicist Aaron Ross, along with professional riders Chloe Woodruff and Evan Pardi visited the San Diego Wind Tunnel on February 26, 2021. Results will be shared on the Coefficient Science page in April, 2021; with additional aerodynamic and metabolic performance posted throughout the year.
