Ergonomics for cyclists.
Perfectly realized. Carbon monocoque frames, electronic gears and intelligent shocks... the technological developments in the bike industry are pushing the boundaries. To make bikes more enjoyable, more comfortable, more efficient or faster, manufacturers are concentrating on “Hardware Technology.” However, will technology alone make the desired gains possible? According to a study from the German Sports University in Cologne, more than 90% of those people taking part complained of aches and pains when cycling. An important reason for this is poor ergonomics. Incorrect ergonomics on the bike can turn discomfort into sharp pain in a hurry and can ruin your day on the bike. In competition, incorrect ergonomics can waste valuable energy and prevent a place on the podium. Ergonomics is about focusing on the person, not the technology. At Ergon, cyclists are at the center of our search for the best connection between rider and bike. Bike ergonomics is an extremely complicated endeavor and requires knowledge across different disciplines. The development team at Ergon is made up of specialists in various areas; there are bike experts, racers, sports scientists, ergonomics experts, engineers and industrial designers. Our aim is to develop products that offer the best ergonomics for cyclists, which combine the best scientific principles with the practicality of realworld usage. The performance of Ergon products is tested in scientific laboratory studies, on the test rigs of the technical institutes and just as importantly with blood, sweat and tears in everyday use or on the World Cup race circuit. Cycling press editorials, international design awards and numerous victories in the toughest race conditions in the world confirm that Ergon is on the cutting edge of cycling performance.
