  • Vittoria introduces: Qurano Carbon Clinchers
    for these requirements UCI is most concerned about the potential harmfulness of broken parts of a wheel in case of an impact Compliance with both ISO and UCI requirements of course aligns perfectly with Vittoria s desire to create innovative products without compromise to safety and performance Perfect Match and Speedlock If anyone knows how rims and tires need to fit it s Vittoria The tire rim combination must be perfect for speed and performance as well as safety The new Qurano range is designed to closely resemble the behavior of tubular tires in the occurrence of a puncture allowing a rider to come to a carefully controlled stop safely The Speedlock design of the rim profile in combination with Vittoria s optimised design for tire beads prevent a critical separation in all but the most unlikely scenarios significantly reducing risk and improving rider safety The perfect match profile allows riders on Vittoria wheels and tires to focus on their challenge of choice rather than being distracted by fears Prior to the Tour of Rwanda 2015 our National team riders feared descents in the peloton The confidence inspired by Graphene enhanced tired have truly transformed them into the fastest descending riders wet or dry Rwanda Cycling Federation Tubeless Ready In September 2015 Vittoria launched the Graphene enhanced Corsa Speed This new tire is entirely dedicated to being uncompromisingly fast and Vittoria s R D has shown that this is accomplished with a tubeless setup The Corsa Speed has the lowest rolling resistance ever measured by far and when mounted tubeless it is virtually puncture proof Of course the new Qurano carbon clincher range has been developed to also be a perfect match for such a tubeless setup right out of the box The new wheels facilitate just about every scenario

  • Hitting A High Note! Altium i10 Ambassadors Smash Personal Bests
    undertake a controlled bike power test before and after this period of usage This test using the CP20 protocol for measuring Functional Threshold Power FTP has seen a gain of 22 watts in average power output Although some of this gain may be attributed to the consistency of training the quantum of the improvement is significantly higher than at any time in the past five years of my triathlon training I am very optimistic that the continued use of the Altium i10 will contribute to a very successful 2016 triathlon season culminating in the ITU Age Group World Championships in Mexico in September Another Hartree JETS team member Martin Gore said Since using the Altium i10 at the start of this year I have found that I am getting stronger During swim sessions I m finding that I am stronger as the session goes on and find that I am stronger in the longer reps than I used to be My biking is benefiting in a similar fashion At a recent training camp in Lanzarote I found that during climbing sessions I was able to push bigger gears and ride at higher power outputs for sustained efforts than I think I have ever done Also this week we retested threshold power which resulted in an increase in average power and a decrease in average heart rate in comparison to the previous test two months ago He continued My running is the strongest out of the three triathlon disciplines I was pleasantly surprised recently when racing the Scottish Cross Country Championships where I recorded one of my best finishes This was very unexpected as I had been suffering from shin splints for over a month and hadn t done the quality and quantity of running that I would have liked to have done I think that the training that I was doing coupled with using the Altium i10 was a big factor in this performance Alan Montgomery Director at Altium i10 elaborated on the device s benefits He noted It s well recognized that at high altitude athletes have a reduced amount of oxygen that they are able to breathe in This then triggers the body to improving oxygen efficiency With Altium i10 we ve developed a tool that works to simulate altitude and thus improve oxygen efficiency and overall endurance It s fantastic to see the results come through across a diverse group of age group athletes Montgomery added We look forward to seeing more and more athletes continue to smash their personal bests getting the best from the Altium i10 device and beating their rivals on race day For more information on Altium i10 please visit www altium i10 com Related Stories Why Do Triathletes Get High The Theory Behind Altitude Training FILED UNDER Gear Tech Press Releases TAGS altitude training Altium i10 Most Read Popular Now Most Watched The 1 Workout To Get You Ready For Ironman Exercises to improve your reactive strength How Pain Tolerance Affects Performance
