What is a Lactate Threshold Test?
A Lactate Threshold test is the perfect way to ride and train smarter regardless of what type of cyclist you are: whether you ride sportives, do spin classes, go on a few club runs, or are a keen racer! In terms of general riding, your Lactate Threshold is the intensity that separates “sustainable” from “unsustainable.” When you are out riding with a group (or on your own) and you are going hard, you will know how long you are able to sustain such an effort! With regards to racing, it is a key determinant of performance and will decide if you are riding below your Lactate Threshold for the majority of a race when others around you might be riding above theirs. Simply put, you will have more performance left at the end of your ride.
How long does it take?
A Lactate Threshold test takes 1hr.
What do I need?
