Power Performance Decoder (PPD) the New way test

INSCYD’s PPD is used by world championship cyclists and triathletes around the world.

In the last few months, PPD has been used and thoroughly tested by pro teams CCC, SEG Racing as well as by many WorldTour coaches and professional coaching businesses such as Sisu Racing, also in direct comparison to lactate and lab tests. This way, top-level accuracy is not only guaranteed, but validated.


INSCYD is not a training software. It’s a performance analysis tool that will allow you to truly tailor your training sessions to your goals and needs.

Start training for real. You can’t improve what you can’t measure.

The Power-Performance Decoder allows us to assess the full 360° metabolic profile based on entirely remote testing. In the last few months, PPD has been used and thoroughly tested by pro teams CCC, SEG Racing as well as by many WorldTour coaches and coaching businesses, also in direct comparison to lactate and lab tests. This way, top-level accuracy is not only guaranteed, but validated.

PPD comes as an unprecedented tool because this test can be done anywhere with a powermeter. With simple instructions given to the athlete and without the need for a coach to be present.

So, if you want to maximise your training whilst we are experiencing the most challenging environment in living history then this is critical for you. You don’t even need to leave your home.

By completing the testing, you won’t waste a single second or minute of training.

Your results from the testing include:

· VO2max - maximum aerobic performance

· VLamax - maximum glycolytic performance

· Anaerobic Threshold

· Fat combustion rate

· Carbohydrate combustion rate

· Aerobic & Anaerobic energy contribution

· Lactate recovery and accumulation

The Protocol for the testing is as follows (There are 4 components to the test) which can be completed over a 72 hour window if needed:

Once the test is completed all you have to do is send the separate respective files across to us and we do the rest.


An example of how this can be used is looking at your VLamax.


VLamax is the most important metric you should focus on and train accordingly too. You may have never heard of it because up until last year it was used only by Pro’s and national federations. But now its benefits are opened to everyone and you can finally start connecting all the dots that compose your performances: metrics, training adaptations, race predictions all based upon your own unique metabolic profile from the remote testing that Sisu Racing can provide.
