After years of dreaming about the ultimate bicycle, AeroVelo is excited to finally present Eta: a two wheeled-speed demon designed to significantly surpass highway speed limits on less than one horse power and to break the current land-speed record of 133.8 km/hr. Eta builds off of last year’s Bluenose design (which reached 125.0 km/hr) with several similarities and many key differences.

A lot of what it takes to go break the world record at Battle Mountain is the efficiency of the external aerodynamic shape. A huge amount of work had been done to design and optimize the shape of Eta prior to the start of summer to ensure we get the least drag on the vehicle. In this post we will outline the steps we went through in the design process.
