Technogym introduces revolutionary indoor bike designed for cyclists

Technogym introduces revolutionary indoor bike designed for cyclists
August 30, 2018

World leading fitness and wellness products and technologies brand Technogym has introduced its new SKILLBIKE™, a revolutionary stationary bike that enables cyclists, triathletes and cycling enthusiasts to live the emotion and challenge of outdoor experiences in an indoor environment.

SKILLBIKE includes exclusive features specifically designed for athletic and performance training: it is the first indoor bike with real gear. The REAL GEAR SHIFT patent that allows users to replicate the dynamics of hill riding. By shifting gears, riders can counter the change in resistance and maintain the correct power and cadence for the maximum efficiency, while the console displays the gear ratio selections in real time.

Real Gear Shift enables the unique MULTIDRIVE TECHNOLOGYTM (patent pending) that allows riders to switch from power based training routines to hill climbing simulations. This improves strength and endurance as well as maximizing efficiency in a new and engaging way.

To offer the same feeling of outdoor riding, SKILLBIKE’s RIDING DESIGN (Patent) reproduces the biomechanics of outdoor bikes. The frame and handlebar are shaped to seamlessly accommodate different riding positions such as road, time trial and mountain bike. At the heart of SKILLBIKE™ is the ingenious ROAD EFFECT system which simulate the feeling of riding outdoor by reading your pedaling style and performance parameters.

SKILLBIKE is a digital and fully interactive product: the integrated 7” colour LCD connected console provides all of the exerciser’s relevant performance data with real-time feedback on cadence, watts, speed, distance, gradient, heart rate, selected gear and gear ratio. Thanks to its PEDAL PRINTING™ technology, SKILLBIKE also offers feedback on the circularity and symmetry of the exerciser’s pedaling at different gear ratios to monitor and increase efficiency.

With Technogym having been an official supplier to the last seven Olympic games, SKILLBIKE also features a wide range of training programs, targeted routines and routes to fit user’s goals and performance tests in order to evaluate your threshold power and choose the best training level for you.

SKILLBIKE is also integrated with STRAVA, GARMIN and ZWIFT technology.

Technogym sees that SKILLBIKE as also ening ideal for small group training sessions on the gym floor or in a studio environment. With SKILLBIKE trainers can offer two different yet equally engaging class experiences: Race and Performance. The SKILLBIKE™ professional app allows trainers to prepare the class in advance and enables seamless class management.
