" We would definitely recommend the Excalbur Sport and LEM software"

For the research conducted in the PhD thesis: “pacing strategies during exercise in the heat” we frequently made use of the Lode Excalibur Sport Cycle ergometer. We examined the effect of several thermal signals on pacing patterns in the heat. Pacing pattern was represented by changes in cycling power output. With the Lode Excalibur Sport we were able to determine the (changes in) power output very accurately. Moreover, analyzing the power output data was very easy with the Lode Ergometry Manager software. We never experienced problems with the ergometer or the software and would definitely recommend it to other researchers who are looking for state of the art ergometers. The ergometer is suitable for elite athletes and for patient populations because of its highly reliable recordings in the low and high power output range.
