strydportraitTo call these guys pioneers and innovators isn’t overstating it. Gus Pernetz and Jamie Williamson join Dave to discuss Stryd, the world’s first power meter for running. Head over to the Stryd Blog and read about some of the happenings at this small but powerful Boulder, CO start-up.

During this discussion, Dave, Gus and Jamie talk about the benefits of running with a power meter. How they are using them today, how they can and likely will be used in the future, the differences between training and racing with heart rate on the run versus with power, among other great things.

Gus and Jamie were forthcoming with their answers, were straightforward and very honest about where they are with Stryd. We over here at Octane think these guys are really on to something. People 15 years ago thought that training and racing with power in cycling would be a passing fad. It clearly isn’t and neither will this. Give the podcast a listen, then check out the following great write ups about Stryd:
