Verve InfoCrank power meters become the official power meter for Podium Ambition.
29 January 2016: Podium Ambition Ltd are delighted to welcome Verve Cycling as Official supplier of InfoCrank power meters to their UCI professional team. Having worked with Sarah Storey for her Hour Record Attempt in 2015 the entire team can now benefit from the accurate power measurement provided through the InfoCrank technology.
Barney Storey explained the importance of being able to secure the support of Verve Cycling, “With riders operating in their home programmes for the bulk of the winter we need an accurate way of being able to monitor their progress and InfoCrank is the only option for comparison between one set of cranks and the next.”
“During the racing months we also need to be able to track stage race load and fatigue for rider well-being, but also pick out key parts of races and learn about the results from the data each rider records. We know the accuracy of InfoCrank is unrivalled and so these analysis will ensure both individuals and team goals can be supported.”
Despite only launching their technology in 2014, InfoCrank have rapidly become the product that everyone wants to get their hands on due to its superior reliability both in terms of data recording and lifespan. In addition to providing the basic power readings, the InfoCrank measures torque effectiveness, power balance between legs, pedal smoothness and the latest technology being developed will ensure the cranks do not require magnets to operate.
George Galbraith of Verve Cycling explained the decision to link up with Podium Ambition Pro Cycling powered by Club La Santa; “Having worked with the Storey’s for Sarah’s Hour Record we were delighted to be able to link up with the whole team as they turn professional. We know that both Sarah and Barney place a huge importance on the science of training and racing and our cranks will play a massive part in allowing the team to track performance and find the next improvement.”
