New World Record Set with SRM PowerMeter

19. September 2013 - 4 years, 9 months and 1 day ago

It came down to the very last record attempt of the week of the competition, but everything finally fell into place: Sebastiaan Bowier reached 133,78 km/h in the high-tech recumbent from students of the Delft University of Technology and the VU University Amsterdam. With this speed, he broke the world record and became the fastest cyclist on the planet. It was 0,6 km/h faster than the previous record, set by the Canadian Sam Wittigham. Team manager Wouter Lion elated: “We knew that the technical and the human aspect of the race were right today. We knew it was possible and it is amazing that is actually happens. And he did it with difficult head wind.” Alongside the new top speed of Sebastiaan, the second cyclist of the Delft/Amsterdam team also reached a world class speed: Wil Baselmans is with 127,43 km/h the third fastest man on earth, right after Bowier and Wittingham.

Inclement weather didn't dampen spirits at todays Demo Day, day one of 2013 Eurobike. Set in the picturesque, hilly region of Allgäu in Southern Germany, cycling enthusiasts flooded the town of Argenbühl for the opportunity to test ride all that the cycling world has to offer. Despite the weather, our crew at SRM were kept busy throughout the day with cyclists eager to try our road and mountain bikes, each equipped with an SRM PowerMeter and PowerControl. After being briefed by SRM technicians, each rider headed out into the countryside to put the 'pedal to the metal' to see exactly what SRM Power Training is really about, and what sets our SRM Training System apart from competitors.

SRM Indoor Trainer in Space Simulation Training

07. August 2013 - 4 years, 10 months and 13 days ago

Scientists from Bielefeld University’s Research Institute for Cognition and Robotics (CoR-Lab) were studying how intelligent assistance systems can help astronauts to keep fit – both physically and mentally. However, tests were not limited to humans, the robots were subjects as well. The scientists were testing both their suitability and their durability. The experiment ended on Saturday (April 27). The experiments are conducted under the supervision of Professor Dr. Franz Kummert and Professor Dr. Britta Wrede. The eight test subjects spent 18 days living closely together in a sealed off area of the Institute of Aerospace Medicine at the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) in Cologne. ‘Their living conditions were almost as cramped as those in a Space Shuttle,’ said Kummert. Distraction was provided by two robots, Flobi and Nao.
