Wind resistance is definitely number 1 contribution to why you can’t runs fast in the wind. When you ride your bike fast the head wind hits your bike surface create drag like a brake/resistand. The same way you felt when you try to walk or cycle against the wind or try to paddle/swim your way through the water. Only if your body is slippery enough to break through the wind you would have gain extra 5%-10% ease of acceleration.
Wind drag and how to break-in
In my world I used to ride variables of bicycles ranging from blunt designed mountain bikes and bladed structure road bikes. Other than having slippery Lycra clothing as wind breaker, the surface of the bike if the front edge as pointy or nearly sharp front end like the tip of the airplane propeller then I can easily pedal my bike to top speed while encounter head wind in front of me because the sharp bladed design helps to “break-in and enter” through the wind surface and create low drag around the bikes body by sliding through the frame surface parallel to the wind direction. This motion is called “Aerofoil”…same concept seen on the wing of an aeroplane.
XAVAGE concept of Air-breaker
Same applies to car like XAVAGE, to eliminate wind resistance its main body surface in which it made its fist contact with the wind must slice through to break the wind barrier and allow the car to move forward like cutting jelly with a knife. The wind is the jelly and the car is the knife. XAVAGE was design in a way where its main critical surfaces are designed with sharp edge lines and various angular surface to cut and slide through the wind resistance.
Here are the attributes of perfect wind slicer body design.
● Sharp edgy middle/center lines protruded from front to rear including to the windshield to cut, break and dissipate the wind gush into two gushing route: left wave and right wave. Re-routing the wind to both side of the car horizontally by 45 degree allow the car have equal stability via body surface spoiler that extended to the rear.
● “X-colar” lines sculpted like a slide around the top rear engine hood allow the winds to flow violently into two branched section for each left and right side of the car. 1st route into the mid artificial down force spoiler (top hood) and 2nd route passing straight to the rear side of the cannal exited between two rear headlights ramp which helps to produce side wind pressure.
● .The lower portion of the car forces the wind to vent into the car front and sides for engine, disc brakes and internal cooling system. Also the wind also will go through 4 winged spoiler disc brake case where it acts to create down force for the wheels to keep pushing to the ground. This is called “scoop and pump the air into” technique.
● At the front nose, there are lines of “V” groove located between the headlights and hood where the grooved “V” lines extended front top to the sides where the side mirror located. These groove helps to channel the strong gush of impacted air to proper channel and also create equal down force on both front wheels. When the wind exited from these channel it will create huge thrust to the side like Vernier thruster rocket to stabilize the side of the car.
