- CONTACT & HOW TO FIND US
Following the suggestion of Christina Vogel - world champion and Olympic Games winner for several times - funded by the Federal Institute for Sports Science (BISp) and in cooperation with the German Cyclists Association (BDR), the Technical University Munich (TUM), 5th Dimension Design, Alpha Modellbau, fluidyna GmbH und der phoenix GmbH a prototype for a new pedal shoe system for track cycling was developed.
Compared to existing solutions adapted from road racing, within the new system malfunctions, the transmission of power and the aerodynamics are improved.
The first pedal system explicitly developed for track racing will initially be provided for selcted athletes from BDR. After optimizing and facilitating the production process and thus, reducing costs, a broader application will be possible.
Furthermore, the system can be used in selected diciplines in road racing, e.g. in individual time trials.
A follow-up project is in application stage.
Do you have questions or are you interested in the project? Please contact Ingo Valtingoier.<- Back to: Projects
