Pedal forces and kinematics during cycling.

Cycling data

Pedal force and pedal angle as function of crank rotation. Described in: 

S.A. Kautz et al. (1991) The pedaling technique of elite endurance cyclists: changes with increasing workload at constant cadence.  Int. J. Sport Biomech. 7,29-53.

Data files for the individual subjects are combined into the file kautz.zip (165 kB).

The first four letters are the subject code (and the 1st 2 correspond to the table 2b in the paper). After the subject code there are 2 different files for each subject:

  • files = ????h.avg correspond to the high workload files in the paper.
  • files = ????1???.avg correspond to the highest workload we recorded

NOTE: Some files may have duplicate data with different names if they meet both conditions (eg, clach.avg is also the same as clac190.avg)
