MAKE SPEED HAPPEN
1080 Sprint is a portable resistance training and testing device for sprints, skating, swimming and change of direction movements. It uses intelligent variable resistance technology to provide a very smooth and controllable resistance. It measures power, force, speed and acceleration with high accuracy.
Train with the right amount of resistance from start to finish
1080 Sprint is able to provide a variable resistance over the course of a sprint. When the athlete pushes off, the resistance can be set to a high level. As you gain speed the resistance can be programmed to decrease to fit the max speed phase and to not cause technical degradation in the stride.
Data with a purpose
The 1080 Sprint reporting options include the possibility to trim and dissect a sprint profile into meaningful pieces of information. How quickly does your running back cover 5 yards? When does the sprinter reach top speed and how long can she sustain it? Which players fatigue quicker over repetitive movements and which ones have higher power endurance? Does the left and right leg stride produce equal amount of force?
This type of information is easily attained with the 1080 Sprint and helps create a better understanding of the performance characteristics of the athlete.
Change of Direction
This is a key element in most athletic development. By applying the overload principle to CoD training and testing, you can spot for, and develop sport specific agility using your favorite drills. The data will reveal the detailed characteristics of each acceleration and deceleration phase of the movement far beyond what you can gauge from pure timing information.
Evaluate symmetry of movement
1080 Sprint enables testing of the athlete for asymmetry throughout the full sport specific movement. This enables coaches to detect even the slightest differences in left and right side force and power. Large asymmetries may be detrimental to performance and lead to injuries over time. On the same token, monitoring the symmetry of an athlete coming back from injury provides good input to return-to-sport decisions.
Just like always having available a perfect tail wind, the 1080 Sprint allows for neuromuscular adaptation to high speeds in a fully controlled environment. Using the precise settings of towing speed and force, coaches can apply the most beneficial overspeed formula to each individual athlete, consistently and repeatable. Maximum possible towing speed 14 m/s (31 mph).
Overspeed versus Assisted Speed
Any coach will agree that to get fast you have to train fast. But repetitive sprinting at or near top speed requires highly demanding accelerations which quickly cause fatigue. To increase the possibility for training at max or near max velocity, the 1080 Sprint can assist the athlete in getting there without full exertion in the acceleration phase.
