Extreme workload range of 10 – 3000 watt

This extraordinary peak workload is extremely suitable for sports medicine and testing the strongest athletes on their anaerobic power or isokinetic capacity. Combined with the low start workload of 10 Watt this Excalibur will fit everybody. 

Suitable for all types of athletes 

The ergometer can be used for various tests, e.g. Wingate, Isokinetic, HIT, and time trials. Moreover, CPET testing and bike fitting is possible, allowing all types of athletes to be tested.

Extreme adjustability 

Both the saddle and the handlebar can be adjusted horizontally and vertically using the control unit. 

Exchangeable accessories 

The pedals, handlebar, and saddle can easily be exchanged for the Test Subjects’ own accessories to test the Test Subject as realistic as possible, to optimize the circumstances, or exchange to test a better bike fitting.

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!

The new Excalibur Sport

Smarter, Better, Stronger!

lode excalibur sport

With its unbeatable accuracy and reliability, the Excalibur Sport has proven itself as The Gold Standard in Ergometry ever since 1985. However, the world keeps spinning, and developments never stop. That is why we now proudly present the new Lode Excalibur Sport: Smarter, Better and Stronger! Still true to its heritage but combined with innovative new features to meet the latest and future requirements of modern sports medicine and research to allow athletes to become stronger and better with a smarter use of human performance technology. 

Versatile ergometer 

The new Lode Excalibur Sport ergometer is an essential part of a sports medicine or research lab since it can be used to test all types of athletes. The ergometer allows for various tests, like a Wingate sprint test, Isokinetic tests, High-Intensity Tests (HIT), and time trials. Moreover, it can also be used for CPET testing and bike fitting. 

This ergometer is standard supplied with a 7″ control unit and a USB A-B cable to connect to cpet devices.


Electric adjustable saddle Excalibur Sport

Electric 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. The saddle of the ergometer can be adjusted horizontally in a range of 252 mm and the saddle height in a range of 388 mm using the Control Unit or LEM. The Test Subject can be seated on the saddle while adjusting. 

Accurate over a long period of time

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.

low noise bicycle

Low noise 

Due to accurate manufacturing and the careful choice of materials, the product has an extremely low noise level. 

Designed to be sweat-proof

Designed to be sweat-proof

The housing of the ergometer is designed in such a 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.

Extreme low start up load 10W

Extreme low start up load 10W 

The extreme low start-up load of 10 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.

Exchangeable pedals

Exchangeable pedals

The cranks of the ergometer are suitable for almost all available clip systems so cyclists can perform a test with their own favorite pedals.

Electric adjustable handlebar Excalibur

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

The handlebar of the ergometer can be adjusted horizontally in a range of 169mm and vertically in a range of 390mm using the Control Unit or LEM software. The Test Subject can use the handlebar while adjusting.

Compatible with ECG and pulmonary devices

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.

RS232 connectivity

RS232 connectivity

RS232 ports enable connectivity to most ECG and ergospirometry devices as well as PC’s.

LEM compatible

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 is present.

Smarter Better Stronger

Smarter, Better, Stronger!


SMARTER – The future is now

Adjustment of both the seat and the handlebar is possible in both a horizontal and vertical range. This adjustability can be controlled electrically through the display of the bike or LEM software, enabling easy optimization of the seating position. Moreover, the seat, handlebar, and pedals can be exchanged easily for total adaption to the body posture and bike-fitting of each individual athlete. You can extend the new Lode Excalibur Sport with the Lode Ergometry Manager Software, for faster availability of data and to simplify the analysis of the tests. The latest Lode electrics makes the ergometer ready for the future.

BETTER – It’s all about the details

The adjustability range of the New Excalibur Sport has improved considerably, making it possible for even more athletes to use the bike. The new touchscreen offers an easy user interface. You can determine yourself what data is made visible. Furthermore, blood pressure measurement and SpO2 are available.

STRONGER – No sweat, no glory

The new Lode Excalibur Sport offers the highest performance testing with an unimaginable maximum peak load of 3000 watts! This load is fully supported by the new indestructible and sweat-proof design. The bike is extremely stable and cables are protected against sweat.
