World Triathlon continues its mission to develop the sport around the world through a new partnership with ROTOR at the start of the 2022 season. ROTOR, the bike component specialists, work with core technologies to help improve cycling performance, and will provide World Triathlon Development with 15 complete power meters for each year of the agreement for specific use such as training camps.
As part of the agreement, ROTOR will also provide technical support for development athletes at World Triathlon Championship Series races, all with the goal of helping them improve their cycling performance.
The meters can take the key metrics of pedal smoothness, torque effectiveness, left/right balance, optimum chainring angle and torque 360 to help improve an athlete’s technique and body position.
“There is no doubt that the ability to record and analyse cycling data with specialists can unlock an athlete’s cycling potential and help them achieve their goals,” said World Triathlon President Marisol Casado.
“At a time when technological advancements and data are seeing the world’s biggest athletes and most established national federations push the envelope in terms of what and how they can be measured and improved, the new partnership with ROTOR will allow us to bring similar analysis and the subsequent performance benefits to those hailing from smaller and developing triathlon countries.”
ROTOR Bike Components CEO, José Luis García-Alegre, said: “ROTOR is proud to begin working with World Triathlon as an Official Development Partner. Our experience in the development of high-performance technology products will serve to continue the path that, since our origins, has always linked us to professional athletes of the highest level around the world. It is also an important challenge for us to help top-level triathletes achieve their goals, especially in the run-up to the Paris 2024 Olympics.”
