NeilPryde Bayamo Review
Designed in collaboration with BMW Group DesignworksUSA using sophisticated Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations, extensive wind tunnel testing and input from the UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team's TT specialists. BAYAMO is fast and trim, meeting the highest standards for aerodynamics, stiffness and comfort.
BAYAMO features NEILPRYDE's unique Kamm-tail aerofoil. While a traditional aerofoil profile performs well at narrow yaw angles, it is inefficient at the wider yaw angles of up to 30° experienced by a rider during time trials and triathlons. The narrow profile and long trailing edge of a traditional aerofoil are also structurally unsuitable for withstanding the dynamic forces of a powerful rider. The NEILPRYDE Kamm-tail takes advantage of the phenomenon where the "tail" of the aerofoil is truncated, cheating the wind into behaving like the truncated surface is still present and minimising drag. The subtle chamfered trailing edge also reduces turbulence at wider yaw angles, dramatically improving aerodynamic performance.
The profile of the NEILPRYDE Kamm-tail aerofoil is 10% wider than those found on other leading time trial bikes. This has the dual benefit of delaying flow separation, further reducing drag and providing an inherent shape that is up to 60% stiffer than traditional aerofoils.
The result is a frame that balances the aerodynamic performance with stiffness to weight ratios necessary for a professional level race machine.
