Northcliff Wattbike Studio

We are very excited to announce that we are opening a Wattbike Studio at the store!

What is a Wattbike studio?

NOT A SPINNING CLASS…

We look at it as group power training, where you do intervals based on your own personal power and fitness ability.
A Wattbike is an indoor training bike designed for cyclists, it replicates the smooth feel of a road and measures your performance with precise power data.
Benefits of training on a Wattbike:

  • A standard session in a Wattbike studio is approx 1 hour of QUALITY training and intervals, can compare it to 2:30hrs – 3hrs on the road
  • Rider can see their cycling technique on the on board computer and take immediate action to improve
  • The data is saved so results can be viewed and analysed after the workout
  • The air and magnetic resistance allows for all types of cycling levels, beginner to professionals
  • Measure real time power output, cadence and is compatible with most heart rate belts
  • There is a unique polar view to display pedal stroke effectiveness, with left right balance, angle of peak force etc..

Power based training

Power is the modern way of training analysis, it shows how much force you are putting into your pedal stroke to generate energy on the bike. The reason why we use power based training is because it is a true measurement of how much effort one puts into the bike and we can accurately monitor progression of a cyclist based on power outputs and testing.

POWER IS A TRUE MEASUREMENT OF FITNESS

Essentially you want to increase your power to weight ratio, which is what we are looking to improve so that you can achieve your personal cycling goals
