Belkin pro cycling team interview EUROBIKE 2013 | Pioneer pedaling monitor system | power meter


My name is Mathieu Heijboer, and I am the trainer of
the Belkin Pro cycling team. Well, power is in fact the most important measurement
at the moment in procycling. We saw the product one and a half years ago for the first time,
and since then, I ‘ve started testing with it,
and one or two riders started testing with it, and we gave Pioneer already a lot of feedback to make
improvements to the product, so the whole training program is based upon power measurement. And we can see the rider’s progression,
based upon their power data. What we do after receiving the power data
from the riders is analysing the data, to see how they react upon training,
how they perform in races, and then we gofurther with a new training program, or maybe change the race program,
based upon power data. What I think the advantage of the system is that
it has the unique feature of pedal force on both sides. and then also the other features like gps,
and of course the normal features that are in all the power systems but the left and right balance feature,
that’s really unique, and an advantage for us as a team. My name is Edwin Van Vugt,
I am Innovation Manager at Belkin Pro Cycling Team. Of course it’s always nice to have a new gadget on your bike,
and especially with the Pioneer system it has lots and lots and lots of possibilities;
you actually have to make sure you’re looking at the road and not at the screen,
because of all the possibilities we have with it. The development of the Pioneer Power system is going very well,
and that’s all – gives me a lot of confidence, and also enthusiasm for the future. Our slogan is “Ride the Future”;
with the new Pioneer system we are actually able to ride to the future, and see how we are riding in the future.

  1. How it looks like with availability in germany right now? Have seen the first Video about it i think early this year and also have seen it at EuroBike. The guy there told me that it would fit also on the Dura-Ace FC-7800C Carbon-Crank, is that true? I think i wanna give that System a try, because i´m also into DJ and know your company for quality equipment. Thx!
