Introducing INSCYD Testing + Promo! Discover your full metabolic profile

By Sofia Marin | In General, INSCYD, Optimal Performance | on February 20, 2018

What kind of rider are you? Do you know your physiological strengths and weaknesses? What kind of training and nutrition is best suited to your specific metabolic abilities?

Achieve is excited to announce we’ve partnered with INSCYD, the world’s most advanced performance analysis software and secret weapon of world class pros.

Get the most out of your training by completing an INSCYD Critical Power Test and finally get answers to the questions above by identifying your metabolic profile.

Now through Feb. 28, 2018, Achieve is offering INSCYD tests and consultations at a discounted rate of $160 (Retail: $250).


Critical Power Testing offers insights into your metabolic profile, your muscle fiber spectrum and even what training will be most beneficial for your specific body. The testing protocol and subsequent results identify your full metabolic profile, including VO2max, Anaerobic Threshold, FatMax, and the missing link of cycling performance: VLamax.

20% of the difference in performance between cycling amateurs and professionals, can be explained by VO2max. However 75% of the performance differences in these two groups is accounted for by differences in VLamax (volume of lactate accumulation and clearance) or Glycolytic Capacity.

VLamax is one of the most influential yet underrated parameters of cycling performance. Your VLamax or Glycolytic Capacity can influence everything that is important to a cyclist including your fat metabolism, threshold power, recovery, carbohydrate sparing, and stamina. It is often the main differentiator between a good and an excellent cyclist and between amateur and professional.

When you take the INSCYD Critical Power Test, you will gain insights into your full metabolic profile including your glycolytic capacity. You will receive specific training suited to your body and nutrition tips from your coach who will discuss the findings and apply them to your plan.


What do you have to gain?

  • Discover your full metabolic profile including: VO2max,  Anaerobic Threshold, FatMax, VLaMax (Glycolitic Capacity) and more
  • Understand why you excel at some aspects of cycling and not at others
  • Learn about your physiological strengths and weaknesses and how to improve them
  • Identify which fueling strategies will serve you and your specific goals best
  • Better understand your muscle fiber spectrum
  • Discover what it takes to be an athlete who attacks their competition with bouts of high power, over and over again
  • Empower your coach to apply the insights to your upcoming training and future goals


VLamax is highly adaptive to training and detraining. It may well account for a majority of changes in endurance performance throughout a season. Therefore, tracking VLamax through testing and adjusting accordingly is imperative. We now have the tools to do this for you.

Achieve is excited to offer this incredible tool and work closely with INSCYD creator Sebastian Weber who has used INSCYD to coach the likes of Peter Sagan, Tony Martin, Ivan Basso, and André Greipel.


To set up your INSCYD Critical Power Test, call 415_609_7972. For Achieve athletes, contact your coach for specific instructions.
