Created by Technogym, SKILLBIKE checks all the boxes of satisfying the demands of experiential consumption by bringing the outdoor cycling experience to your cardio floor in dramatic fashion.
SKILLBIKE opens a new product category enabling cyclists, triathletes, and cycling enthusiasts to live the emotion and challenge of outdoor experiences in an indoor environment both at home and in fitness clubs.
SKILLBIKE, together with the other SKILL LINE products, is part of a specific strategy to address the fast-growing trend of sport performance training both in mainstream health clubs and boutique studios. More specifically, SKILLBIKE is the one and only stationary bike that perfectly simulates road bikes. It opens a completely new market space for fitness clubs to attract new customers and to offer new programs with unique indoor training experiences (the cycling global market is expected to grow from $46 billion in 2016 to $67 billion in 2024).
The product includes exclusive features specifically designed for athletic and performance training: It is the first indoor bike with real gear. 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. To offer the same feeling of outdoor riding, SKILLBIKE’s RIDING DESIGN 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 that simulates the feeling of riding outdoors by reading individual pedaling style and performance parameters.
SKILLBIKE is a digital and fully interactive product: The integrated 7-inch color 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. SKILLBIKE also features a wide range of training programs, targeted routines, and routes 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.
