What is Power and What is a Power Meter?
Cycling is the only sport where performance is absolute and can be definitively measured at every juncture. This measurement is called power. Power is measured with a device on your bike called a power meter. Power meters quantify your efforts in watts and kilojoules. This basically captures the amount of work you output at any given moment or across an entire workout or ride. Watts can be directly compared across all cyclists at all levels. That means you can see how you stack up to World Champions like Peter Sagan on a finishing road sprint or Annemiek van Vlueten on a time trial. Power also allows you to train with a specificity that other sports just can’t match.
What is VeloPro?
VeloPro, is the world’s first AI-powered training system for cyclists. VeloPro’s adaptable system ensures that every cyclist -- no matter level of experience -- gets a customized training program perfectly designed to prepare them for their cycling events. To create and continually optimize custom training programs for cyclists, VeloPro uses proprietary machine learning algorithms that considers a rider’s experience and schedule, as well as the distance, elevation, and the date of their targeted event -- and then applies proven periodized training structures, just as a live coach would. VeloPro helps cyclists make the best use of their power meters by analyzing their power meter data to fine tune their plan and providing workouts in targeted power zones.
