From its very beginning the Wattbike has been at the cutting edge of cycling technology. Developed in Association with British Cycling, the Wattbike spent nearly 8 years in development under the watchful eye of former British Cycling Performance Director and Head of UK Sport Peter Keen.
With a vital role to play in helping to develop champions, the Wattbike was designed and built to exacting standards. With the ability to monitor the performance data required by the world’s top athletes and coaches, the Wattbike brings professional quality to gyms and cycling studios around the globe. The accuracy, incredible feel incorporating Wattbike’s RRF Real Ride Feel Technology and robust build quality have made the Wattbike the standard all other indoor bikes aspire to. Despite only being launched in 2008, the Wattbike has already played an integral role in many Olympic and World Championship successes.
Adopted by athletes from sports as diverse as Athletics, Ice Hockey, Formula One Motor Racing and Rugby, the Wattbike offers athletes a unique training experience not available on any other piece of fitness equipment. Now your members can train like a pro too!
