Concept2 Pace Derivatives Chart
A simple chart that shows the relationship between pace, watts and calories per hour as measured by the Concept2 RowErg, SkiErg and BikeErg.
BikeErg Raw Data Capture
Through the ErgData application, it's possible to record and review stroke (revolution) data from a Concept2 ergometer. In this article we capture and analyse pieces performed on the BikeErg at different damper settings.
BikeErg Damper and Pace Derivatives Charts
On the BikeErg, the same RPM at different damper settings alters pace, power and calories per hour reported on the PM5. In this article we provide three charts showing these relationships at damper settings 10, 8, 6, 4 and 2.
