Heather Jackson and Pioneer Cycle Sports had some exciting news to share recently…
In a move which was eagerly anticipated by cycling fans and the triathlon fans alike, pro Triathlete Heather Jackson partnered officially with Pioneer Cycle Sports to gain traction around their new lineup of consumer friendly power meters and cycle computers. Long known in the pro triathlon and cycling community for delivering only the best in power metrics, Pioneer is making a bold move in providing that technology to amatuer riders and consumers as well. This combines offering the product at new, lower price points as well as developing a system in which riders can get into power analyzing products for a low initial investment – Pioneer Cycle Sports offers a “step up” program which allows you to mix and match components to provide you as the consumer the choice in EXACTLY what metrics you want to see.
Why, exactly, did Heather choose Pioneer? It’s because of the sheer amount of Data that Pioneer is able to capture – “After only a month on the system we are already seeing results and we haven’t even explored the depths of what it can do. I’m very impressed with the accuracy and the amount of data that is being captured. In particular, I’m taking advantage of the pedaling balance and pedaling efficiency metrics, which make Pioneer’s system so special and influenced our decision to incorporate their gear into my training,” said Heather Jackson, professional triathlete with Team Wattie Ink. “With Pioneer’s HD Power Meter system we are now able to track my performance, and it is easier to work more closely with my coach.”
Pioneer had this to say about the upcoming partnership – “We are honored to be respected by such a high caliber athlete as Heather and excited that she reached out to team with us based upon wanting to improve,” said Russ Johnston, EVP of marketing and corporate communications for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “It is great to hear about the initial improvements already, and I am confident that once Heather taps into our exclusive HDPower Metrics further, she will raise the bar on her cycling performance. We’re excited to integrate power into Heather’s training for the epic event and beyond.”
