Specialized went inside the wind tunnel to find out which downhill tuck position is the fastest.
How do you gain speed when you’re fully spun out going down hill? Most of us get into some sort of aerodynamic tuck. But which position is the fastest? Specialized went inside its in-house wind tunnel to test three positions: in the drops, on the tops, and sitting on the top tube. The imaginary test course was a -6% descent with no pedaling. Watch the video to find out the results.
