Excalibur sport

The standard in Sports Medical diagnostic and performance testing.

The Gold Standard in Ergometry: with proven accuracy and reliability, the Excalibur sport is renowned worldwide as “the gold standard in ergometry”. The newly designed and improved Excalibur sport ergometer meets the latest requirements of modern sports medicine and research. Since athletes are becoming more and more powerful and testing more advanced than ever, this ergometer has been developed for extreme workloads up to 2500 watt! The new design ensures maximum stability at these high workloads. Thanks to the increased adjustability, versatile positioning of the test subject has never been better! The function of this product can be enhanced by using it in combination with our Lode Ergometry Manager software.


Extreme workload range of 8 - 2500 watt

The extraordinary workload range of 8-2500 watt is unique in the world! It makes this ergometer extremely suitable for sports medicine and testing the strongest athletes in the world on their anaerobic power or isokinetic capacity.

Read out of seating position

The Excalibur Sport has a unique read-out of the seating position on the display of the Control Unit. The display shows saddle height & angle, handlebar position vertical & height.

Various test modes

Besides the hyperbolic (rpm-independent) mode that is used most of the time, the standard control unit offers several other test modes, like the fixed torque mode and the linear mode.These modes can be used in both manual and terminal mode.

Heavy Duty Design

The Excalibur Sport is designed for heavy duty sports medicine ergometry, without doing any concession on the esthetic, modern and robust design. In other words: Excalibur Sport: the gold standard in Ergometry!

Easy to clean

The design of the ergometer and the housing material make it very easy to clean.


Extreme low start up load

The extreme low start-up load of 7 watts and the adjustability in small steps of 1 watt make this ergometer perfectly suitable for many different applications. The standard control unit shows multiple ergometry parameters and you can determine your specific default setting and start-up menu.

Accurate over a long period of time

The Lode ergometers are supplied with an electro-magnetic braking mechanism of Lanooy (eddy current). The biggest advantage of this braking system compared to a friction braking system is the absolute accuracy and the accuracy over time. Moreover, friction braking systems have more wearing parts.

Small adjustment steps

The workload of the Lode ergometers is adjustable in steps of only 1 watt. Depending on your wishes, the test operator or the test subject can adjust the workload. The steps of 1 watt are possible in the manual mode as well as within protocols.

Compatible with ECG and pulmonary devices

The Lode ergometers have digital interfaces and can be controlled easily by all known stress ECG and pulmonary devices available in the world. This is one of the reasons why the Lode ergometers are very popular worldwide.

Designed to be sweat-proof

The housing of the ergometer is designed in such way that sweat does not have the chance to drip into the mechanical parts and cables are protected. This ensures a long lifetime and makes the ergometer insensitive for malfunction.

LEM compatible

This product can be used with Lode Ergometry Manager (LEM) software to manage data and to apply specific protocols when a Communication card or Network card is present

Adjustable handlebar Excalibur Sport

The position of the handlebar of Excalibur Sport is completely adjustable in height and length

Adjustable saddle Excalibur Sport

The position of the saddle of the excalibur sport can be adjusted in height, length and angle to suit all users

Compatible with click pedals

The bicycle ergometer is compatible with most available clickpedals to allow for maximum user flexibility

The Corival handlebar is adjustable within 0-360 degrees.
The Excalibur Sport's handlebar is adjustable in both vertical (465- 855 mm) and horizontal (229- 600 mm) direction.
During Eccentric or negative ergometry you have to resist against a workload produced by a motor instead of an electromagnet, see article prof. Folgering: Effects of positive and negative exercise on ventilatory CO2 sensitivity.
Yes, you can find interface sheets for most common devices on the website at the "interfacing" tab of the product. If your CPET device is not present you can ask us to support you. In most cases we can quickly provide you with a solution.
The Torque factor is used to calculate braking Torque during Wingate sprinttest. Torque factor x body weight = braking Torque this is used in this test. Lode is using 0.7 as the default Torque factor for normal healthy test subjects. Athletes will need a higher Torque factor to get their optimal braking torque, women slightly lower, testsubjects with severe obesity, muscle atrophy, muscle dystrophy etc will need a lower Torque factor (see lt. Bar Or).
Your Lode ergometer is standard supplied with one display. The contrast of this display is factory set and can adjusted by qualified service personal only. If your ergometer is supplied with a programmable option the contrast of this display can be set as follows: go to SYSTEM PARAMETERS select SETTINGS go to CONTRAST. Change the visability according your wishes and save the changes.
Yes you can request the actual pedalling speed and power when you are cycling in Manual, Analogue or Terminal mode.
The load will only be returned when the pedalling speed is 30 RPM or more. For technical details see the Lode RS232 protocol
The Q factor of a bicycle ergometer is the distance from crank to crank. For the Excalibur the Q factor is simular to a racing bike meaning 147mm (+/- 3 mm).
The Q factor of the other ergometers is a little bit bigger (like a city bike), for the Corival this is 180 mm.
Yes you can. Make sure the chipset used in the converter is from FTDI to have good data acquisition.
Not sure what this means? Contact us and we will help you to get the right converter.
SPD one sided, It is possible to use one side for normal (sport)shoes and the 'click' side for Shimano shoes.
