Wattbike teams up with Loughborough University to sponsor 'pioneering' cycle sport research

By Tom Walker    08 Aug 2018
The four-year research project is set to begin this October

Indoor cycling specialist Wattbike has teamed up with Loughborough University (LU) in order to explore the scientific underpinnings of how power measurement is shaping the nature of cycle sport.

The four-year research project, set to begin this October, will have a particular focus on the accuracy and validity of both measurement and the application of power metrics to training and virtual and augmented reality cycling. The research will be carried out within Loughborough University's Sports Technology Institute and School of Sport, Exercise and Health Studies.

“Power is now the principle method for prescribing and evaluating training, analysing performance and determining fitness," said Richard Baker, Wattbike MD.

"It is increasingly the main variable discussed in scrutinising performance and the effectiveness of training.

"We are now looking to develop cutting-edge knowledge to inform best practice and improve the indoor cycling user experience. Wattbike have previously funded smaller studies but are looking forward to embarking on our first PhD level programme.”

Wattbike has worked closely with Peter Keen, Loughborough University’s director of sport advancement, to identify key areas of research interest.

“The primacy of power measurement for training prescription, evaluation, scientific research and online virtual cycling is leading to a growing awareness of the importance of accuracy and validity," Keen said.

"There is now a huge range of different products that offer measurement of cycling power and force, many with powerful claims for their accuracy.

"However, no accepted international standards for calibration, accuracy and stability of these devices currently exist. There is a great need for more research in these areas.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for any PhD candidate with a passion for sport."
