Find Your Balance, Find Your Stryd
Boulder, CO /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Stryd, the leader in run power technology, announces Stryd Duo, a dual-sided running power meter, along with the new Stryd Footpath, a ground-breaking bilateral motion capture of your running with 3D visualization and analysis toolset to enhance performance, monitor injury recovery, fatigue, footwear selection, and running drills. Stryd Duo’s advanced motion-processing algorithms capture continuous foot movement from both sides of the body with millimeter and millisecond precision, informing runners and coaches with affordable, accessible motion capture of every run in every running condition.
“Until now, capturing human movement while running has been largely limited to short duration trials requiring costly and fixed-in-place equipment in laboratory settings. Today, Stryd Duo and Stryd Footpath break this paradigm, taking high-resolution 3D motion capture technology with you on each and every one of your runs,” said Jamie Williamson, PhD, Stryd CEO. “For the first time, continuous motion capture of running gait is available to all runners and coaches, with the unique ability to capture all of your running, under your actual running conditions, wherever you run. Previously hidden, subtle trends in your running movements relating to your running performance, footwear, drills, fatigue and injury, now empower new insights and improved running outcomes.”
How Stryd Duo + Stryd Footpath Transforms Run Training
Stryd Duo’s new left-right metrics, including new and ground-breaking real-time second-by-second balance ratios, are being delivered with Stryd’s industry-leading accuracy for the first time including Leg Spring Stiffness Balance, Impact Loading Rate Balance, Ground Contact Time Balance, Vertical Ratio, and Vertical Oscillation Balance. Runners with Stryd Duo will also benefit from increased accuracy without sacrificing responsiveness of the existing Stryd Power metrics, such as Stryd Power, Form Power, and Air Power.
Stryd Footpath, a new high-resolution 3D motion capture of both your left foot and right foot while running, goes beyond numbers and enables runners to see progress in new ways to visualize their performance transformation after their run. Use cases of Stryd Footpath include:
- Injury: Track your recovery process through quantifying subtle changes in your footpath as you recover from an injury.
- Fatigue: Monitor how and when you fatigue in and across your runs so you can tailor your training to combat fatigue.
- Drills: Quantify and visualize the impact of your drills on your footpath to determine if they are providing the intended benefits.
- Footwear: Observe how different shoe choices reshape your footpath and contribute towards and impact your running.
- Performance: Visualize your footpath to determine personalized indicators of how your footpath changes as your performance transforms.
“Stryd Duo launches us into a new realm of capability for runners. The system advances runners beyond second-by-second run data with new ground-breaking tools for visualization and analysis of their running footpaths.” said Angus Nelson, Stryd CMO. “This incredibly rich footpath data gives runners the ability to better understand their performance transformation, see the impact of shoe selection, see how fatigue impacts their footpath, how drills enhance their form, and monitor recovery from injuries.”
Stryd Duo is now available at the best price through the Stryd Duo + Membership bundle, which includes the new pod and 12 months of Stryd Membership for an upfront cost of $299 USD and $9.99 USD per month for the Stryd Membership. (Exact price and availability varies by region worldwide.) This bundle provides runners the new dual-sided metrics of Stryd Duo along with Stryd Footpath visualizations. Runners already using a Stryd Next Gen pod can create their own Stryd Duo system by purchasing a second pod at a reduced cost of the full Stryd Duo system.
New features will be available to users in early November. To learn more and order Stryd Duo, visit https://www.stryd.com.
Emerging from the research labs of Boulder, Colorado, Stryd developed the first wearable run power meter technology and end-to-end power-based run training & racing ecosystem. Power is the single measure of running performance that guides runners to train optimally on hilly terrain, in windy weather and across elevations and weather conditions. Runners follow a singular number (power) to perfectly pace their runs and pair it with power-based workouts, training plans, and racing plans to improve their running fitness and achieve their goals. Olympic, professional, elite and amateur athletes and runners have adopted Stryd technology to gain a decided edge in their training and racing and continuously set new personal bests.
