Now Offering INSCYD Power Performance Decoder testing!  

With the new Power Performance Decoder testing we are able to create a “virtual lab” that gives us all the data you would get in a normal lab test, and more, with a simple field test.  Derived and based only on fundamental, peer reviewed basic science, INSCYD’s Power-Performance Decoder is used by the highest ranked cyclists and triathletes around the world. Over the last few months, PPD has been beta tested by pro teams CCC Team, JUMBO-VISMA, Alpecin-Fenix, SEG Racing as well as by many WorldTour coaches and coaching businesses. Testing and benchmarking has been done in direct comparison to lactate- and lab testing, ensuring top-level accuracy is guaranteed, AND validated.
PPD offers up the following data:

  • Maximum aerobic performance (VO2max)
  • Maximum glycolytic performance (VLamax)
  • Accumulation and recovery of lactate
  • Fat and Carbohydrate combustion rates
  • Aerobic vs. anaerobic energy contribution r
  • Anaerobic Threshold

This athlete profile allows coaches to measure and quantify the respective athlete’s unique characteristics, resulting in a laser focused training plan to improve race performances and help athletes reach goals

The test is done with a 90 minute protocol with varied efforts, either outside on the road or on a trainer.  You can even do this on Zwift!  You do need a power meter, but no other specific equipment is needed to conduct the test.  When you do upload your ride file you will also need to let us know your weight, height, and body fat percentage (the more accurate this is the better but even using a normal bioimpedence scale give us reliable results).

All tests include a 60 minute consultation to help you understand the results and put them into action in your training.  Contact us now to take your PPD test and bring your training to the next level!
