At NRG, we’re always looking to keep you one stride ahead of the other runners out there. Today, we bring you the Stryd Power Meter. Find speed like a cyclist. Build stamina like a triathlete. All from the development of the hidden potential inside of you that can be found via from the addition of power based training to your regime.
STRYD is the first device that brings power-based training, so far only known to cyclists and triathletes, to the world of running.
Stryd measures the exact amount of energy you exert at any given moment. You learn how to run to your limit, but not over it. Power adapts to any race course in real time, so there are no unexpected surprises. With Stryd, you can predictably turn in excellent race results instead of "breaking."
