What are power and dynamometer?
To understand FINAL 11, I think we can’t do anything without mentioning “dynamometer”. Before introducing our leading role FINAL 11, let’s see what are “power” and “dynamometer” first.
“Power” is the energy that an object uses in a certain period of time. Energy shows in all kinds of ways in the universe, and sunlight is the major source of earth energy which provides the needs for all animals and plants. What we contact the most are the electronics in our homes, they convert electricity to luminous energy (lamp bulb), thermal energy (electric warming oven), kinetic energy (fan) etc., which brings better quality of life for human. Cycling process of “power” means the driver cycling of energy, just this power is not electric power but our legs.
So, in simple terms, a bicycle power meter is a force applied to the pedal by the driver, power is calculated by multiplying the number of turns, and on the table to display. Trample harder or the faster the speed, the power value will be higher on the list. Dynamometer is an emerging bicycle part which has not reached “20 years old” yet since its invention. Even in Europe, the representative of top-level cycling sports, dynamometer has been popular only for a decade among the top teams. The introduce of dynamometer represents that physical exercise begins to pay attention to the thought of scientifically training in recent 20 to 30 years.
The ultimate weapon to achieve “every 11 speed bicycle can use dynamometer”—FINAL PICA. “In an age without power meter, drivers only relied on heart rate, speed, and cadence to guide the training, but there were many factors affecting the training, for example, the heart rate will be affected by air density, temperature, and humidity; Even at different temperatures, the static heart rate will change, which means that
the reference value of heart rate is very small. For trainings. the dynamometer is a more objective and accurate tool. Just like a bright light in the dark night, it can guide the car owners to step on the way of training efficiently and conveniently: Chen Feng said so at the product release conference. To achieve 100% “created in China”, FINAL 11 group gave up the . traditional” position to install dynamometer like plate claw, centre shaft and flower-drum, the made the first flywheel PICA riskily. -powermeter integrated cassette” is the full name of Pica, which means embedded power flywheel, and the nickname of which is electrophorus elfin. PICA made a big splash in the pool, but for a product like this, there were two different voices in the folk: One was to call on the spirit of cherishing and protecting domestic independent research and development, the other one was “the voice” of querying the durability, weight, accuracy, price setting and marking strategy etc. FINAL 11 and PICA will amaze the world or leave dejectedly, time is the most just and the most strict judge, let’s wait and see. We’ve invited Chen Feng, the CEO of FINAL 11, to the special theme
‘Design of Bike” of this year’s All-Star of Bikes Season Two to erate the story of FINAL PICA.
