Nix Biosensor and EF Pro Cycling work together

EF Pro Cycling athletes will further integrate the Nix Hydration Biosensor into their full-season training routines, starting with this week’s Team Camp in Sierra Nevada, Spain. With Nix’s revolutionary biosensor, EF Pro Cycling aims to adapt hydration strategies for athletes in both the men’s and women’s teams and thereby optimize performance.

The partnership underlines EF Pro Cycling’s commitment to deploying innovative technologies to gain a competitive advantage in the sport. Designed to provide real-time hydration data, the Nix Hydration Biosensor will play a critical role in increasing the team’s understanding of the individual and unique hydration needs of their athletes, allowing them to make data-driven decisions to achieve peak performance.

Dr. Kevin Sprouse, director of sports science at EF Pro Cycling, expressed the team’s excitement about the expanded partnership, saying: “EF Pro Cycling places great importance on hydration to ensure peak performance. We’ve tested several hydration sensors over the past few years and have found Nix’s platform to be very accurate and easy to use. Our excitement about the technology has led us to now roll it out to all athletes across both the men’s and women’s teams, in our continued bid to deliver every possible benefit for EF Pro Cycling. .”

The Nix Hydration Biosensor is a groundbreaking device that provides real-time hydration data, allowing athletes to optimize their performance by accurately monitoring their hydration levels. The device uses advanced sensors to quantify both fluid and electrolyte losses, providing athletes with crucial decision support data on their fluid intake needs during training and competition. Research shows that athletes with as little as 2% dehydration can experience endurance performance losses of up to 20%. By analyzing athlete data, EF Pro Cycling’s medical and technical staff can tailor hydration plans to the specific needs of each athlete, ensuring they remain within their own optimal levels.

“We were very happy to hear that EF Pro Cycling through Dr. Sprouse heard about Nix,” said Meridith Cass, CEO and founder of Nix Biosensors. “Because of EF’s commitment to innovation in human performance, they will be the first full team in the pro peloton to change the way hydration strategies are developed in professional cycling. We look forward to contributing to their success with our technology.”

The start of the training camp in Spain tomorrow marks the first group implementation of the Nix Hydration Biosensor with EF Pro Cycling. Athletes such as Alberto Bettiol, Stefan Bissegger, Rui Costa, Ben Healy, Richard Carapaz, James Shaw, Harry Sweeny and Marijn van den Berg are among those eagerly awaiting the integration of this advanced technology into their training routines. After camp, these athletes, along with the rest of the EF Pro Cycling roster, will use the Nix Hydration Biosensor during their at-home training sessions, evaluating how their personal sweat metrics vary between different training intensities, locations and climates.

This collaboration between Nix Biosensors and EF Pro Cycling sets the stage for further progress in performance optimization. As the team prepares for major races including the Tour de France and Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift, the partnership promises to deliver valuable data and insights that will shape EF Pro Cycling’s hydration strategies and contribute to their overall success.
