“The ultra-lightweight makes it a perfect weapon.“
Power sensors have become the reference tool in the professional peloton. They’ve been widespread for years now. Of course there were sceptics at first but very quickly many racers have realised the benefits they could draw on to train with. For my part, I’ve been using one for years and I’ve always been faithful to SRM.
When the project for connecting an SRM sensor and a LOOK pedal was presented to me, it aroused my curiosity. I must say that the result lived up to the project’s ambitions. The ultra light weight makes it a perfect weapon. I can see the accuracy of an SRM sensor in the display and data transmission and the performance of a Look pedals for optimal power transfer during sprints.

“It helps me track my form changes“
Preparing for a triathlon and especially an IronMan is a precision exercise. The ramp up is done gradually and must be managed in a methodical way if you want to be ready on D-day. Even with years of experience and knowledge of my body, it’s important for me to rely on specific, reliable values that allow me to guide my preparation in the months before my goal. It helps me track my form changes and my state of fatigue and adapt my training.
During the event I also manage my effort better thanks to the power sensor. It prevents me from overdoing things in euphoric moments – which always happen at 180 kilometres – and to better smooth my effort. This allows me to arrive – if I can say so because after 180 km it’s not always easy – in a cooler state for running.
I travel throughout the year to comment on cycling events for French television and it’s true that the ease of use of the EXAKT, the ability to transfer it from one bike to another quickly makes it an ideal training companion. I like the performance of a LOOK pedal and a power sensor in one and the same product.

“An efficient tool to help me get the absolute best out of myself“
When I started sharing my passion for cycling on social media, I never imagined how important it would become in my life. Cycling is one of the reasons I wake up with a smile every morning and I absolutely love sharing this emotion.
Cyclosportives are the perfect opportunity to push my limits and get the most out myself. However it is never easy to estimate the difficulty of a route and save enough energy for the final kilometers. To be able to manage the race with a powermeter integrated in the pedals is brilliant! It definitely saves me from being too hotheaded and burning all my matches at the start!
I travel regularly simply because I love discovering new places and sharing my experiences on social media. The great thing about the EXAKT pedals is that they are extremely easy to use and install. Even though I am not a pro I can swap them from one bike to another quickly and without difficulty.

Speed is the discipline that requires the most power on the track. You can be sure about that. I have to be particularly explosive for a very short time when I start my sprint, and these are the small details, the few extra watts, that set me apart from my opponents.
To develop these qualities, I work a lot in the weight room. “Lifting iron” to increase my maximum power is hard work. I then use the EXAKT sensor on the track, during my sprint sessions, to reinforce my weight training. Seeing and tracking the change in my performance allows me to stay motivated and focused on my goals.
The EXAKT power sensor is also a great help in choosing the gear I use in competition. Of course, it allows me to know my form better, but also allows me to understand the behaviour of each track better. The performance differs from one to the other, depending on the nature of the materials, the rate of hydrometry and the atmospheric pressure. Wood, for example, changes a lot. In summer it’s drier, with better performance which enables me to develop more. I always confirm the gear that I use in competition with my coaches and verify it with the performance data I’ve collected.
