Diamondback IO Aero Road Bike
Diamondback’s Wake Control System is formed by engineering strategically shaped depressions called vortex generators into the trailing edge of the truncated airfoils. These depressions set up mini areas of counter-rotating turbulent flow. When placed in a specific pattern, the counter-flow areas interfere with natural air flow across the frame and significantly reduce the wake that leaves the bike. The IO’s vortex generators better control the wake and significantly improve the aerodynamic performance compared to other aero road bike designs, says Diamondback.
