Supplier showcase: Wattbike partner on world-first group cycling software

Wattbike has partnered with Intelligent Cycling to transform indoor cycling with innovative new technology that enables automatic personalisation for riders in a group cycling class

Published in Health Club Management 2020 issue 4

Wattbike has partnered with Intelligent Cycling – innovators in indoor cycling technology – in an exclusive deal to bring world-first technology to the industry, and transform indoor cycling into a truly smart, connected experience.

Providing a new, unique class experitence, the Intelligent Cycling technology will connect to each Wattbike AtomX in the class independently, personalising the resistance reaction on each bike to match the needs of the rider. This allows for everyone in the group to follow the same workout, but at an intensity that suits their fitness level.

Personalised workouts
Designed to create a motivational journey for the member, enhanced programming options for the instructor and a better business tool for the club owner, Intelligent Cycling software will put each rider at the centre of their own personalised, immersive smart workout.

Brian Overkær, CEO and founder of Intelligent Cycling explains: “Intelligent Cycling develops software to raise the game of indoor cycling. Technology that really impacts a class, regardless of which instructor is coaching.

“Wattbike has a high penetration into the clubs and is the only truly smart bike that can connect with our software to initiate an individualised user experience on a whole new level.”

With patented technology, the Wattbike AtomX already gives riders a fully connected cycling experience. By combining this smart technology with Intelligent Cycling’s newly updated software, each riders’ details will be recognised to automatically personalise the ride and adjust the bike’s resistance for each individual, allowing a group of varying abilities to work out together at the same relative intensity.

Overkær adds: “We deliver modern-age technology, which sets us apart from our competitors who still require buyers to additionally spend thousands on hardware, just for software set-up. Our system requires no maintenance or additional hardware, just the download itself. Users can even log on from anywhere to join a class via their smartphone.”

Richard Baker, CEO of Wattbike comments: “With this partnership, we’ve been able to deliver software that connects directly with the bike of the rider, altering it to the exact ability of that particular user, changing resistance to suit the portrayed environment and intensity of the ride. Welcome to the future of indoor cycling.”

“This is the first truly smart group cycling solution. Welcome to the future of indoor cycling” – Richard Baker, CEO, Wattbike
