Windgate Test at Han Seneca

Nijmegen, Ellen and Matthias did another performance test at the Han Seneca Institute supervised by Vincent Bastiaans. This time their maximum output power were tested. The so called Windgate test consists of a 4 min warm up at 100 W and a 30 sec all out section. As you can see on the picture it is no fun at all. Already after 10 sec you like to stop, but there is still 20 sec to go. The purpose of this test is to get an idea about the power losses in the record bike by comparing the output power under “lab” conditions with the output power in the record bike.
