Road to Tokyo

Training with KiSprint: faster off the starting block, faster to the goal

For a perfect run, every detail has to be just right – beginning with the start. Only proper technique allows athletes to unleash their maximum power in the first meters. Kistler’s KiSprint instrumented starting block measures the force curve during a run, and a laser determines the speed. Automatically calculated performance data also provide valuable knowledge about the starting and acceleration phase, bringing athletes a step closer to perfection with each run – and the winner’s podium in Tokyo well within sight.

Ready, set, go: three reasons to train with KiSprint
