Abstract

Despite frequent use of kayak ergometers for research and monitoring, there are
questions over the transference of information gained on ergometers to on-water
performance. The aim was to investigate if power and force-velocity (FV) profiles
measured on an ergometer reflect sprint velocity (SSVel), stroke rate (SR) and distance
per stroke (DPS), on-water. National level kayakers (n = 27) completed maximal on-water
100 m sprints and profiling on an isoinertial kayak ergometer. Pull power (PullP) on the
ergometer was found to explain 85% of variance in SSvel, as well as being significantly
related to SR (r = 0.80; p < 0.01). Maximal force was found to correlate to PullP (r = 0.80;
p < 0.01), SSVel (r = 0.78; p < 0.01) and SR (r = 0.70; p < 0.01), but not to DPS.
Ergometer data can be used to predict on-wa
