Technogym – the world leading brand in fitness and wellness products, services and digital technologies and official supplier to the last seven Olympic games – introduces SKILLBIKETM, the 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’s 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 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 simulates the feeling of riding outside by reading your pedalling style and performance parameters.
SKILLBIKE is a digital and fully interactive product; the integrated 7-inch colour LCD connected console provides all of the relevant data of your performance with real-time feedback on cadence, watts, speed, distance, gradient, heart rate, selected gear and gear ratio. Thanks to its PEDAL PRINTINGTM technology, SKILLBIKE also offers feedback on the circularity and symmetry of your pedalling at different gear ratios to monitor and increase your efficiency.
A wide range of training programs, targeted routines and routes are available to fit your goals and performance tests, in order to evaluate your threshold power and choose the best training level for you. SKILLBIKE is integrated with STRAVA, GARMIN and ZWIFT to keep you on track with your goals.
It’s an ideal solution 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.
