Fast-paced cycling track shoot for CUBE Bikes

The pre­mi­um bikes man­u­fac­tured by CUBE of Germany are used in diverse dis­ci­plines includ­ing down­hill rac­ing and triathlons. This is why world-class triath­letes Andreas Dreitz and Andreas Böcherer rely on CUBE’s bikes. To shoot a sports cov­er­age, we accom­pa­nied Dreitz and Böcherer to a bike fit­ting ses­sion at the cycling track in Augsburg, Germany. The pho­tos cre­at­ed dur­ing the shoot were used by CUBE for adver­tis­ing pur­pos­es on its web­site and in social and print media.

Optimal ergonomics for top performance

Over the course of the fit­ting ses­sion, the ergonom­ics of the ath­letes’ posi­tions on their bike seats were adjust­ed and read­just­ed numer­ous times. Diagnostic mea­sure­ments were con­duct­ed con­tin­u­ous­ly to show the ide­al posi­tion in which each cyclist’s physique, pos­ture, and tech­nique would be in per­fect uni­son with his bike. The gear and hel­mets also were test­ed because they, of course, impact the ath­letes’ ergonom­ics as well. All in all, this high­ly tech­ni­cal and pic­to­r­i­al process is extreme­ly fas­ci­nat­ing as can be seen in the dynam­ic pho­tos tak­en by our pho­tog­ra­ph­er Sebastian Kuhn.
