The Excalibur Sport - Smarter, Better, Stronger

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. The Excalibur Sport; Smarter, Better and Stronger! Still true to its heritage but combined with innovative features to meet the latest and requirements of modern sports medicine and research to allow athletes to become stronger and better with smarter use of human performance technology.

Versatile ergometer

The 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.

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

Why the Excalibur Sport

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 ergometer will fit everybody.

Suitable for all types of athletes

All types of athletes can be tested on this ergometer. The ergometer can be used for various tests, like e.g. Wingate, Isokinetic, HIT and time trials. Moreover CPET testing is possible.

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 by the test subjects own accessories to test as realistic as possible, or to optimize the circumstances.

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!

Features

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.

Electric adjustable handlebar Excalibur Sport

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

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.

Low noise

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

RS232 connectivity

RS232 ports enable connectivity to most ECG and ergo spirometry devices as well as PC’s

RS-232 (Recommended Standard 232) is a standard interface for serial communication transmission of data between devices. It is also commonly known as a serial port, COM port, or DB9 port.

The RS-232 standard defines the electrical and physical characteristics of the interface and the protocol for exchanging data between devices.

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

Lode is the standard in Ergometry in medicine. We endorse the cooperation with Lode, and fruitful meetings to improve our research in this rare occupational disease.

“Lode is the standard in Ergometry in medicine. We endorse the cooperation with Lode, and fruitful meetings to improve our research in this rare occupational disease.“

Patients with flow-limitations in the iliac arteries (FLIA) complain from pain and powerlessness during maximal exercise. As such, we used the Lode Excalibur sport with pedal power measurement possibility to diagnose one-sided FLIA. We recently started a new research to look at individual power patterns to possibly identify FLIA in patients with complaints in both sides. Our goal is to detect sport-related vascular problems in athletes using pedal power measurements.

Which languages are present in the North and South version of firmware for Corival, Angio, Brachumera and Excalibur?

North: English, Dutch, German, Finnish

South: English, Spanish, Italian, French

In what range are the handlebars of the Corival and Excalibur adjustable?

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.

Is it possible to put another saddle on the ergometer?

Yes, you can use most commercial available saddles. For the Excalibur an easy saddle exchange option is available. Please contact your service coordinator

Is it possible to control the Lode ergometers and treadmills with external CPET equipment?

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.

Can the Wingate Software be purchased at a later time?

Yes, this is possible. Contact your local supplier for more information.

What is a torque factor?

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).

Can I change the contrast of the display on my Lode bicycle ergometer?

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.

Can the contrast of a single display bicycle ergometer be changed?

Yes, on the backside of the display there is a potentiometer. To have access to this potentiometer you have to remove the upper part of the control unit by removing the screws on the bottom side of the controlunit. ( see service manual for instructions) now you can access the potentiometer and adjust it according you wishes.

Is it possible to request RPM and Load data through the RS232 port while cycling in Manual mode.

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

What is the Q factor of the Lode ergometers?

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.

Can I use a RS232 to USB converter to connect an ergometer?

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.

Which pedals are standard delivered with the Excalibur

SPD one sided, It is possible to use one side for normal (sport)shoes and the ‘click’ side for Shimano shoes.

Is Lode recommending special disinfection procedures for the Lode products due to COVID-19?

Yes, Due to the fact that the scientific research on the spread of Covid-19 is not yet conclusive Lode recommends to disinfect and clean all Lode products and their accessories (cuffs, heart rate belts, SpO2 sensors, handgrips/rails, touchscreens etc) that are in contact with the patient and or the medical personnel with a standard disinfectant as used in the hospital before and after every patient, with attention and care!

Since these agents are sometimes aggressive it might be advisable to check the effect on sensitive surfaces, like cushioning on non-visible areas. Lode will not take responsibility for discoloration due to these agents.
