Cycling biomechanics expert
Borut is the head of the science lab and absoluteBLACK lead scientist. He is a former cross-country mountain biker with now over 10 years in cycling biomechanics optimisation business. He completed his undergrad degree in physical conditioning at the University of Ljubljana and masters study of exercise physiology at the University of Primorska, both in Slovenia. He has a doctoral degree from the University of Birmingham in the UK with a research focus in biomechanics, motor control and ergonomics during cycling. He was the program director of S2P Cycling Science and a founder of a brand Forped – innovative force pedals that are still used only by the best cycling institutions around the globe. He designed the multiple times awarded patent – an adjustable seat post. Borut is also strongly present in the scientific community with many scientific and professional publications to his name on topics including motor control, biomechanics, recovery and ergonomics. He is a frequent invited speaker at the biggest sport science conferences and symposiums. Borut works with several professional cycling teams and individual riders for improving cycling biomechanics and bicycle drivetrain performance.
