During cycling competitions, it is vital to be able to deliver exceptionally high output at particular moments, e.g. during an ascent, when making a break for it, or during the sprint finish. In order to evaluate your output, you can use an isokinetic ergometer to check your pedalling frequency when delivering a particular output.
In order to evaluate the relationship between your maximum output and pedal frequency, you cycle 6 short sprints of 5 seconds with a 2 minute recuperation period in between. The pedalling frequency varies between 40 rpm and 140 rpm.
In the second part of the test, your pedalling technique and the variations between left and right leg are checked. You must maintain a fixed intensity for this, i.e. for both training thresholds (aerobic and anaerobic threshold) and both 90 rpm and 110 rpm.
The Bakala Academy can conduct these professional tests.
