1080 Sprint System

1080 Sprint System is a portable resistance training and testing device for sprinting, swimming and change of direction movements.

It uses intelligent variable resistance technology to provide a very smooth and controllable resistance. It measures power, force, speed and acceleration with high accuracy.

1080 Sprint is able to provide a variable resistance over the course of a sprint. When the sprinter pushes off, the resistance can be set to a high level. As the sprinter gains speed the resistance can be programmed to decrease to fit the max speed phase and to not cause technical problems in the stride.

Evaluate symmetry of movement

Motion 1080 Sprint enables testing of the athlete for asymmetry throughout the full sport specific movement. This enables trainers to detect even the slightest differences in left and right leg force and power. Not only are undetected asymmetries detrimental to performance, but they also lead to injuries over time.

 Contrast Training

This is a key element in speed development. This technique simply involves having an athlete perform basic movements while quickly switching back and forth between resisted and normal sprints or at overspeed.

Motion 1080 Sprint enables an effective method for contrast training as the resistance curve is easily tailored to the progression of the individual athlete.

 Data with a purpose

The 1080 Sprint reporting options include the possibility to dissect a sprint profile into meaningful pieces of information. How quickly does your striker cover 5 metres? When does the sprinter reach top speed and how long can he sustain it? Which players fatigue quicker over repetitive movements and which ones have higher power endurance? Does the left and right leg stride produce equal amount of force?

This type of information is easily attained with the 1080 Sprint and helps create a better understanding of the performance characteristics of the athlete.

 Overspeed Training

The Motion 1080 Sprint allows for neuromuscular adaptation to high speeds in a fully controlled environment. Using the precise settings of towing speed and force, coaches can apply the most beneficial overspeed formula to each individual athlete, consistently and repeatable. Maximum possible towing speed 14 m/s (31 mph).

 Overspeed versus Assisted Speed

Any coach will agree that to get fast you have to train fast. But repetitive sprinting at or near top speed requires highly demanding accelerations which quickly cause fatigue.  To increase the possibility for training at max or near max velocity, the 1080 Sprint can assist the athlete in getting there without full exertion in the acceleration phase.
