Our services for cyclists

From the big city’s asphalt streets to the trails in the earth’s most remote regions. From lactate party in the legs, to speed rush downhill to relaxed coffee rides. Few sports offer such a variety as cycling.

For cyclists of all kinds, HYCYS provides a holistically interconnected service portfolio of bike fitting, aero fitting, training support and performance diagnostics, scientifically based and according to the best methodological standards.

Coaching

For us, coaching is much more than creating of training plans. We plan every single training unit very precisely according to the physiological strengths and weaknesses of our athletes and their individual living environments. Together we structure race preparation and develop and test the optimal pacing and nutrition strategy. In doing so, we always have the goals of our athletes in mind.

In our holistic coaching we can draw on numerous experiences in cycling with professionals and amateurs. And we also offer our cyclists a network of experts of all kinds, such as physiotherapists, chiropractors and nutritionists, for optimal training support.

We offer our athletes different service packages for their individual needs – with and, if desired, without performance diagnostics.

You would like us to accompany you on the way to your next athletic highlight? We are happy to help.

BikeFitting

The interaction between athlete, bike and equipment must be optimal in order to bring performance to the road. And in order to not only get the most out of the subsequent run, but also to enjoy the time on the bike pain-free.

In our gebioMized concept-labs in Cologne, Hamburg and Munich we optimize our athletes’ sitting position. This is preceded by a check-up of the bodily physique, followed by a step-by-step optimization by means of motion analysis thanks to a state-of-the-art video procedure in combination with pressure measurements at the contact points saddle, foot and arm pads.

We have four different fitting offers with different focus areas for our cyclists – for beginners up to our PRE-AERO fitting as ideal preparation for an aero fitting in the velodrome.

You also want to optimize your position on the bike? Feel free to contact us.

Performance Diagnostics

15 years ago, we revolutionized the world of endurance sports with our performance diagnostics. We were the first institute ever to include the maximal lactate production rate (VLamax) not only in the analysis of physiological performance, but also to integrate it into the continuous . And to this day we’ve continued to refine our method – always on the pulse of science.

Our performance diagnostics for cyclists determine numerous parameters of the energy metabolism as well as individual strengths and weaknesses. To achieve a sustainable enhancement of performance, we analyze performance-determining factors such as our athletes’ anaerobic threshold, running economy and fat and carbohydrate metabolism.

Whether as an integral part of our training support or as an individual service: with our performance diagnostics every athlete can determine his or her performance profile and training zones.

You also want to know what you are capable of and check your current physical condition? We are ready to support you.

AeroFitting

Aero is everything! In order to further minimize air resistance and to get even more performance out of the sitting position in interaction with the equipment we offer aero fittings for triathletes in the velodrome.

In several test runs on the track we analyze the individual biomechanical and aerodynamic properties in order to exploit the full aero potential step by step – always in combination with stability in the saddle and comfort on the bike. Testing with different parts and pieces of equipment is also possible there. We always have a selection of the fastest equipment on site.

Whether all-inclusive package with preceding BikeFitting in the laboratory, the individual aero fitting or an equipment test in the velodrome: we have suitable offers for all demands.

You want to further optimize your aero position or find the perfect setup? The velodrome and we are waiting for you.
