Technogym secures design award for revolutionary indoor bike

Technogym secures design award for revolutionary indoor bike
January 28, 2019

World leading fitness and wellness products and technologies brand Technogym has been awarded the Good Design Award 2018 for their revolutionary stationary bike, SKILLBIKE™. SKILLBIKE™, enables cyclists, triathletes and cycling enthusiasts to live the emotion and challenge of outdoor experiences in an indoor environment.

The Good Design Award 2018 is one of the world’s most recognised and oldest Design Awards program organised annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. The trademarked awards were created in Chicago in 1950 by three architects: Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr.

The 68th Good Design Award recognises the work of thousands of designers and manufacturers worldwide who have successfully undertaken the design challenge to produce the best and most outstanding design products across the globe. Over 900 new products and graphic designs were selected from over 47 countries for different categories including sports and recreation.

SKILLBIKE includes exclusive features specifically designed for athletic and performance training.It is the first indoor bike with real gears. The REAL GEAR SHIFT patent 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 maximising 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 threshold power and to choose the best training levels.
