Sebastian Kienle in the wind tunnel of Mercedes-Benz

Reigning Ironman World Champion Sebastian Kienle works with an aerodynamics and acoustics expert for the Mercedes-Benz V-class to calculate the perfect aerodynamic in his RS1 Dream Kona Aero Racesuit in the Mercedes-Benz wind tunnel in Untertürkheim.

As a triathlete, Sebi knows that aerodynamic drag is one of his toughest opponents, which is why he wants to learn to sit on his bike as aerodynamically as possible. Together with Mercedes-Benz, Sebi was able to work on this very thing in order to ensure he has every chance possible to re-claim his World Title again in 2015.
