Wind Tunnel Test

Klik hier om het artikel in het Nederlands te lezen! Our aerodynamic engineers, Bart and Charlotte, have made the design of the VeloX 9 as aerodynamic as possible and produced it over the last months (read more about the production of the shells here). The next step is to measure the aerodynamics of the shells, […]

Coating Process

Klik hier om het artikel in het Nederlands te lezen! At high speed the air drag makes up for 70 percent of the total resistance, that is why a good coating is so important. The layers must be applied thinly in order to save weight and to keep the aerodynamic shape intact. An as smooth […]

Fitting Moment

Klik hier om het artikel in het Nederlands te lezen! All components are produced accurately, but sometimes reality appears to be different from the ideal world of a computer model. That’s why we organized a fitting moment on sunday the 28th of April! The most important components were put in the VeloX 9, including the […]

Production Aerodynamic Shells

Klik hier om het artikel in het Nederlands te lezen! Our biggest enemy is air resistance: that is why the aerodynamic shells play such a large rol when trying to break the speed record. Using CFD analyses we designed an aerodynamic and stable shape for the shells, but this digital shape needs to be translated […]

Frame Production

Klik hier om het artikel in het Nederlands te lezen! The frame is the skeleton of the VeloX 9 and is designed and produced by our Structural Engineer Flip. The most important functions of the frame are providing the stiffness of the VeloX, protecting the athlete in case of an accident and distribute the internal […]
