Bio Harmonics


(noun) The study of the application of repetitive biomechanical movements

Bio-harmonics is a fundamental principle at Falcon Pursuit. We realize that each athlete has a unique bio-harmonic. Think about that pep in your step; that "pep" is a result of you being you. Each individual interacts with the world in a unique way, matchless by another person. The ability to maximize an individual's performance (by increasing the harmonic efficiency between the athlete and the environment) is a core goal of Falcon Pursuit.

Consider a runner testing shoes: we know from the study of biomechanics what the ideal gait is for a runner at a specific height, weight and distance goal. We know that based off the runners actual gait, not their theoretical gait, where and when their heal strikes the ground, how/if they pronate and what shoe should be the best fit. But, how do we explain a runner choosing shoe "a" over "b" because it "just felt better?"

Falcon Pursuit's Bio-Harmonics research looks at the impact of an individual's unique harmonic pulse and its interactions with the world around it. For the runner above, it is matching the harmonic vibration of his or her body, with the harmonic vibration of a shoe optimized for a specific distance.

For the cyclist, it is ensuring that the bike matches the athlete's bio-harmonic pulse, avoiding an overly stiff or overly flexible bike. An improperly matched bike frame and drive train components [crank arm, rings, chain, sprocket and wheel spokes] transfer a high percentage of leg power to the road; but, after 25 miles, the vibrational feedback through seat - pedals and handlebars have also had an effect on the athlete.

The human engine reacts to vibrations uniquely. Therefore, excessive feedback influences the power delivery system by measurable amounts and creates muscle and skeletal stress for the athlete. Ultimately, this limits the amount of power the athlete can produce over time.
