Whatever your athletic need PowerCranks probably has something to offer to help you become better than you could otherwise achieve.

Most non-cyclists are starting to see improvement in 2-3 weeks of integrating them into their training program.

PowerCranks offer a 90 day moneyback guarantee such that you have plenty of time to check them out for yourself to see if they are worth the investment.

Summary

Aside from tactics, road cycling performance is dependent upon three major variables.

1. proper training for power and endurance.
2. improving technique for better power and endurance.
3. aerodynamics (for time-trial and bridging/breakaway efforts).

Regardless of how and how much you train PowerCranks can help you to get more out of that time spent training by training more muscles and training better technique automatically while you are doing your normal training. And, the ability to easily experiment with crank length that PowerCranks now offers allows one to easily optimize the aerodynamic/power equation.

Road racing requires a lot of different skills from intermittent quick high powered, high cadence accelerations or sprints in criteriums and road races to sustained, lower cadence, power (in a cramped aerodynamic position) for long periods in time trials. PowerCranks can help the user develop all of these skills. Used by some of the best Road racers in the world including Olympic Road Race Champions Paolo Bettini and Samuel Sanchez and many National Champions.

Needless to say, most road races are won in the last 10-20% of the race, pulling away during a climb or during a sprint finish. Three studies highlight how training with PowerCranks can really help during here. The first by Hug shows the importance of the backstroke, relative to the downstroke, when trying to maximize sprinting power. And, the studies by Dorel and Sanderson show how the backstroke muscles are the ones that fatigue first when approaching exhaustion. If one wants to maximize performance for sprinting and at the very end of the race one needs to ensure that the backstroke muscles are trained equivalently to the pushing muscles. Stopping the relative failure of the recovery muscles at the end of the race will let more of the work done by the pushing muscles go towards making the bicycle go forward. This is exactly what training with PowerCranks does for the cyclist. It is not possible to train this kind of endurance doing 5 minutes of 1 legged drills.Here are some of the suggestions we offer to Road racers to help them adapt "easily" and to achieve early success.

1. Ride in a more open position in the beginning

2. Work on Endurance First

3. Push Big Gears

4. Worry about cadence next

5. Work on aerodynamics
