In another step to help cyclists and fitness enthusiasts push their bodies to the limit in indoor training, Bkool has pushed the technological boundaries of the indoor-fitness-market with the launch of its first ever Smart Bike.
The European tech-cycling company’s latest offering joins an elite group of Smart Bikes that have automatic resistance control, allowing users to reach 1,500 W at 120 RPM in complete silence with its poly-v belt transmission.
With built-in ANT+ and Bluetooth, users can navigate the bike’s features with a smartphone or tablet whilst following their desired workout on a TV or laptop.
“The beauty of the Bkool Smart Bike is that it’s personalised to the nth degree,” said Bkool’s Marketing Director, Jorge Serrano. “With the heart of the bike being connected to the internet, users can take it wherever they want and use it however they want and access the best in workout classes from their own homes.”
The Bkool Smart Bike is an affordable option for hardcore riders as well as fitness fanatics who want to workout in the comfort of their own home, rather than joining the masses at congested gyms or deal with the obstacles and dangers, of outdoor cycling.
This is achieved by the wireless connection to Bkool’s Indoor Simulator – those who buy the bike are given three months premium subscription. The Indoor Simulator gives users access to fitness classes from some of the best indoor cycling instructors, structured workouts, FTP tests that tailor the bike to its user and the ability to ride unlimited cycling routes around the world.
The transport and installation of the Smart Bike can be taken care of by a Bkool technician who will come to the user’s home, assemble the bike and prepare everything ready for use. Its light yet stable 45 kilogram frame and rolling wheels allow users to move the bike to various locations with relative ease.
Further personalisation is achieved with adjustable seat post height, handlebar height, handlebar horizontal positioning and an emergency break.
