Body Bike launches virtual group cycling with Wexer

Body Bike launches virtual group cycling with Wexer
April 29, 2020

European indoor cycling specialist Body Bike has unveiled a new partnership with Wexer that will see the companies combine their technologies to create the Body Bike ‘Smart + Switch’, a new indoor cycle that aims to harness the power of virtual group cycling.

The new bike is described as having “a simple, functional and reliable design” and features a 21" touchscreen, powered by Wexer, offering a curated library of virtual classes.

The screen also features a 180-degree rotation, which enables users to seamlessly switch from training on the bike to floor training with a virtual instructor.

Introducing the innovation, Body Bike Chief Executive, Uffe A. Olesen stated “it's a ground-breaking combination that marks a new standard in on-demand training, delivering the full buzz and engagement of group exercise to those working out independently, either in the gym or at home.”

Kim Hessellund, Chief Executive of The HDD Group, parent company of Body Bike, added "we're bringing together the best products on the market - the best bike, the best virtual system and the best cycling classes - to deliver an indoor cycing experience like no other.”
