Aerodynamic Development Race Optimization (ADRO) manufactures high quality aerodynamic body kits.
Passion for racing brought co-founders Dongwan Yoo, CEO, and Sean Yoon, CTO, together in 2010. They met through a mutual acquaintance and quickly bonded over the aesthetics and performance of race cars. Fast forward several years later, they began creating custom body kits for KDMs as a hobby. As business picked up, they co-founded ADRO in 2020 and began expanding their product offerings.
ADRO products are designed in California, engineered and manufactured in South Korea.
