Kompan releases outdoor fitness bike for park locations
In a world first, KOMPAN is taking the quality and technology of stationary bikes seen in traditional indoor gym settings and making it available in the outdoor public landscape.
KOMPAN’s new outdoor fitness bike can be used by anyone, wherever they are on their fitness journey, thanks to the advanced technology features and innovative design that allows users to track their progress, race friends, have fun and be active.
KOMPAN advise that “good urban and open space planning should have a wide spread of options for exercising and staying active (and this new) bike is designed and manufactured to be placed in any outdoor environment, giving users a compelling opportunity to fit a quick workout into their busy lives.
“Cycling is one of the most popular cardiovascular exercises ... it is safe, effective and simple, great for losing weight and building muscle while minimising impact on the joints.
“Riding a stationary bike also negates deterrents to cycling commonly seen in Australia such as lack of bike paths forcing cyclists to ride on the road, helmet laws, destination distance and no space to park a bike.”
The KOMPAN fitness bike combines the advanced technology and features associated with indoor exercise bikes with a durable outdoor design, which makes it ideal for unsupervised public spaces and parks, as well as dedicated outdoor sports areas such as gyms, recreation centres and sports clubs.
Users can easily adjust saddle height and cycling resistance to match their body, posture and fitness level. It is now also possible for users to track workout power, cadence and calories on a stationary bike designed for outdoor public spaces - a world first. Empowering people to track their performance and progress towards their goals makes them far more likely to stick to a workout routine and stay active.
KOMPAN add “a cycling class in the outdoors is (now) a realistic possibility for councils, gyms and sports centres.”
KOMPAN offer two different bike frame designs - the City Bike for a comfortable, upright riding style and low access point, and the Sport Bike for a more streamlined, racing-style posture.
With an innovative Automatic-Drive-feature, the bike utilises innovative machine learning to automatically adjust resistance depending on the user’s pedalling speed and cadence.
Designed with multiple hand positions to accommodate different riding styles, the bikes have room have two bottle holders, a phone and tablet holder and space for an optional screen.
The bikes’ 7” LCD colour touchscreen - made from vandalism-proof protection glass - gives real-time data on cycling speed, distance travelled, cadence, watts and calories burned.
The KOMPAN Cardio app offers the same functionality as the screen with users able to connect to the app via Bluetooth, view instructional and motivational videos, track and save their rides, and share to external platforms such as Strava, Apple Health and Google Fit. The KOMPAN Cardio app also syncs with third-party apps like Vescape and Zwift, allowing users to gamify their cycling experience, ride virtual roads in picturesque locations, complete structured workouts, and join in social group rides with users from around the world.
The bike is designed and manufactured for the outdoor environment, meaning it's durable and resistant against weather, vandalism and general wear-and-tear. Only the highest quality materials are selected for all components from handlebar to pedal arm. This ensures the bike looks and feels great, even after extensive use in unsupervised public spaces.
Two different installations are available: surface-mounted and inground installation. This means they can be installed anywhere. There are no compliance requirements in terms of surfacing, and with a self-powered design, there’s no need for electricity.
The bike is certified by TÜV SÜD according to EN 16630 and complies with ASTM F3101. In addition, the bike is certified by UL according to UL 1647 and CSA C22.2 No. 68.
