Brake Power Meter

The Brake Power Meter lets riders analyse their braking style. Use the data from this patented invention to improve riding performance.

Continuing development questionnaire

We want to know if MTB riders would buy the brake power meter. As the meter will be a new product category, we need your help to work out if there is a market for the product. Taking the time to answer our two minute questionnaire would be a great help.

The easy to use Wufoo form builder helps you make forms easy, fast, and fun.

Changing how you brake makes you faster

Changing braking habits alone can result in downhill runs being over 10 seconds faster!

Studies have demonstrated experts brake with more power for a shorter time. In one study experts spent 11% less energy braking and had 26% faster time in one corner

 

​​Counter balance fatigue

Reducing braking can counterbalance fatigue!

Propulsive power is strongly related to cross-country performance. We can better predict performance when including braking measurements.
