VELOtron Dynafit Pro Laboratory Grade Indoor Cycling Trainer Blue
VELOtron Dynafit Pro – Laboratory Grade Indoor Cycling Trainer – Blue. This ergometer has been used for general training and also for Functional Threshold Power (FTP) testing, Wingate Testing, and bike fitting during my work as a cycling coach. This is a very rare opportunity to secure and own one of these sophisticated units which are often seen as being out of reach, price-wise, for private individuals and rarely come up for sale on the secondhand market. This unit is in exceptional condition having been well cared for and not heavily used. Most unusually this unit also comes with a spare complete load generator which is a simple swap out should this ever be necessary. VELOtron has been used worldwide by coaches, coaching centres, laboratories and sports science labs. VELOtron has widely been used as the testing equipment of choice to generate accurate and repeatable measurement data which has then been published in many hundreds, if not thousands, of publications. VELOtron is noted for it’s reliability and consistency in wattage measurement, allowing the repeated testing of subjects over months, and indeed years, whilst knowing that performance variations are in the subject and not in the testing equipment. VELOtron delivers laboratory-grade accuracy and repeatability and was built by RacerMate whose build durability was legendary. ALL of the current VELOtron software is available for download from the SRAM website making the original discs that came with the unit defunct as the disc software has since been updated. This unit comes with the original manuals, all original cables (undamaged) and the original power supply, it is ready to use, once connected. The unit does not come with a computer to run the software. The VELOtron can generate variable loads ranging from 5W to 2000W making it ideal for a very wide range of applications including rehabilitation. The stated accuracy of the VELOtron is ±1.5% of reading and repeatability of ±0.2 % or better. It is the perfect unit for monitoring long term trends and fitness changes, where the changes can be small and difficult to detect and be confident about, when using less precise measuring equipment. This VELOtron has a fully adjustable “Dynafit” frame which means that the VELOtron can accommodate a very wide spectrum of riders and the seat and handlebar height adjustments are graduated to allow records of position to be kept between riders and tests, this greatly facilitates quick and easy setup when riders return for repeat testing. The 55lb flywheel with free-wheel is one of the stand-out design features of the VELOtron. The VELOtron has been permanently calibrated at the factory and comes with patented Accuwatt calibration verification software. This software can be run from time to time to ensure absolute consistency of the unit, I have never found the readings to be out of tolerance. The VELOtron incorporates Electronic Gear Shifting which is controlled from a handlebar gear-shift lever. “Virtual” gears can be set to mimic up to 30 chain ring combinations on any bicycle. After installing the Wingate Testing software, if required, the VELOtron can be used to perform Wingate tests on riders. The Wingate test is believed to show two things: all-out peak anaerobic power and anaerobic capacity. The Wingate Anaerobic Test is currently the most popular test for assessing a rider’s anaerobic fitness and is highly repeatable. In addition to the dedicated VELOtron software the VELOtron can be used in conjunction with ErgVideo software which is freely downloadable. ErgVideo software allows riders to ride “with” other riders in ErgoTrainer mode on a wide variety of real course which have been filmed on location covering many iconic rides and climbs. In the ErgVideo environment the difficulty of the riding experience is scaled to the FTP of each rider, the VELOtron can alsobe used in a Multirider environment using the ErgVideo package. Also using the ErgVideo package a rider can generate his or her own workouts on the TrainingPeaks website which can then be ridden on the VELOtron as the TrainingPeaks “workout of the day”. Full details are available on the Ergvideo website. I have used the VELOtron almost exclusively with the ErgVideo package for many years. This item is in the category “Sporting Goods\Cycling\Bike Accessories\Turbo Trainers”. The seller is “qfield-boden” and is located in this country: GB. This item can be shipped to United Kingdom.
