In nearly all performance sports speed, agility and elasticity have become more important in recent years. The faster athletes have a definite advantage. A treadmill system can make a crucial improvement to speed training – subject to certain essential requirements and the application of the latest methodology.For sports such as American football, rugby, football or handball speeds of up to 40 km/h and more are necessary. These speeds need to be reached on a treadmill with athletes who sometimes weigh more than 100 kg (220 lbs). For that a treadmill needs power apart from anything else. Speeds of 40 km/h (optionally 45 km/h / ~ 28 mph) and programmable acceleration levels together with many other functions and design details make the h/p/cosmos pulsar® 3p with its 3 phase power supply unique, particularly for speed training. The drive system allows even heavy subjects to reach speeds of over 40 km/h within a few seconds and thus creates the ideal conditions for effective speed training.
