"Time Trial"

Actual Competition Point High performance can be achieved
by reducing wind resistance
and efficiently maintaining a constant, high output

Key Points for Time Trials

POINT 1

Taking an aerodynamic position reduces air resistance; at 356 w, speeds near 50 km/h can be achieved.

POINT 1

POINT 2

Pedaling efficiency will remain about 50%, as aerodynamic positions are not ideal for pedaling efficiency.

POINT 2

POINT 3

During normal, flat and level riding in an aerodynamic position, peak torque is about 90°, whereas sitting towards the front of the cycle will push the peak torque towards 100°, allowing the rider to obtain a long torque zone between 90° and 120°.

POINT 3
トルクゾーン
  1. Pushing forward foot
  2. Stepping down foot
  3. Pulling foot
  4. Lifting foot

Pedaling Coaching

In time trials, observing the "vector display" and "torque curve" while focusing attention on keeping the pedaling form of the legs in an aerodynamic position will allow riders to maintain a long torque zone, thereby achieving higher performance.
