There are not a lot of things that I look forward to every year except the Tour de France and the Euro and Interbike. As the world sees incredible human performance and Team work in the Tour at the beginning of the summer, we also get to see product showcase for up-and-coming technology, enhancements in athletic performance and nutrition at the close of the season. These are all the cutting-edge technology of the future that not only improve performance of the athlete/bike, but are innovative and the next best thing for man/woman on two wheels. I have my Wish List for the end of 2017 and 2018 and I look forward to reviewing, demoing and experiencing what they can do for my/your performance, health and recovery.
Pioneer Expanded Sensor Network (ESN) system focuses on two metrics, biomechanical input (form and function) from the rider and the rider’s power output, creating the ultimate analysis tool to provide comprehensive data for bike fitters and cycling coaches to improve rider performance. The ESN eliminates the sensors required to capture form and replacing them with a motion capture system (two cameras combined with Pioneer’s proprietary ESN computer analysis program). The newly redesigned ESN System will now show dynamic body movement and position along with optimum torque location and optimum ankle stability and position.
