The Wattbike is an indoor bike that can be used by amateur cyclists as well as world class athletes including professional cyclists, footballers, rugby players, athletes and triathletes. It was launched after the Olympic Games in 2008 and aims to improve riding technique and make training more effective. It is currently used by the top cycling federations in Australia, the USA and France. One of its current ambassadors is Lizzie Armistead, world road race champion. It uses the two methods of resistance-air and magnetic to create a real ride feel. The bike has built in tests to help establish training zones and track performance. It helps set training plans whether that is a 10 mile time trial or weight management. It helps monitor performance and review data.
The Wattbike Pro takes the model as outlined above and takes it to a different level.

You can even move the handlebars and saddle by the millimetre to get the exact ride that you want. The ‘Polar View’ also needs mentioning. This monitors how you distribute power as you pedal. A graph of this date is then displayed as you pedal so you can make adjustments thus improving your technique. Additional data covers power, cadence, heart rate and calories.
