Nottingham Trent University's Sport Engineering team is proud to announce a new technical partnership with innovative wheel producer Parcours.

Launched in late 2016, Parcours aims to make aerodynamics more accessible to all riders, both through price point and a straightforward, transparent approach to testing and data. Parcours offers a full range of wind tunnel-tested carbon fibre wheelsets, delivering tangible aerodynamic gains.

The partnership will grant Parcours access to NTU's cutting edge research in sport engineering to help their team discover ways to overcome some of the hurdles their riders face every time they hit the road.

In return, Parcours will be supporting NTU with equipment and technical expertise for their ongoing cycling science research and athlete testing. Dr Steve Faulkner from NTU's Sport Engineering team says, "This is a really exciting opportunity that will benefit both students and our research into sport engineering. Working with Parcours will allow us to apply the work we do in the lab, and apply and test on elite athletes during their training and racing."
