Quarq and Peaks Coaching Group TEAM UP!

Bedford, Va, USA – March 1st, 2011 - Peaks Coaching Group and Quarq Technology have joined forces in 2011 to make it easier for athletes of all abilities to train and race with power meters.

“It’s an exciting partnership because we are working with the best!” states Hunter Allen, founder of Peaks Coaching Group and co-author of “Training and Racing with a Power Meter”, “Peaks Coaching Group is the leader in power training, our coaches have been training, racing and coaching with power for years and fully understand how to maximize our athletes’ results through the use of power training and power meters. The ability to sell the Quarq CinQo Saturn will allow us to introduce even more athletes to the benefits and efficiency of power training.” 

Peaks Coaches, who are already leaders in power training, are going to receive specific training on Quarq CinQo Saturn set-up and use from the best in the business: Quarq’s founder Jim Meyer.  Jim will be leading sessions on the CinQo Saturn power meter at the Peaks Annual Coaches Summit in May.

“Hunter has been a good friend of Quarq from the beginning and it’s only natural that we work together,” said Quarq’s Jim Meyer.  “With the experience of Peaks’ coaches and the reliability of Quarq powermeters, athletes have everything they need to achieve their athletic dreams.  All that remains is the hard work!”

Cyclists and triathletes can immediately begin to benefit from this partnership as Quarq CinQo Saturn powermeters will be available for demo at all Peaks Coaching Group Camps.  “We see this as an important step in helping athletes try power training before buying” continues Allen, “often athletes hold off on purchasing a powermeter as they fear the start-up of the technology, well now, at our camps, Quarq will handle the installation and Peaks will handle the education”

Quarq Technology was founded in 2006 and designs, builds and sells athlete data systems.  Quarq produces CinQo Saturn powermeters at its factory in Spearfish, South Dakota.  Quarq’s open source software, quarqd, reads ANT+ device data.  Quarq is about to release Qalvin, a mobile application for advanced powermeter diagnostics and calibration .
