The Ital­ian com­pany, which is re­spon­si­ble for cre­at­ing some of the world’s most ad­vanced and beau­ti­fully de­signed fit­ness equip­ment, has launched SkillBike, an in­door work­out ma­chine for cy­cling en­thu­si­asts. The first sta­tion­ary bike to be equipped with real gears, the cy­cle al­lows users to repli­cate the dy­nam­ics of hill rid­ing. By shift­ing gears, riders can at­tempt to counter the change in re­sis­tance and main­tain the cor­rect power needed for max­i­mum ef­fi­ciency, while a con­sole dis­plays the gear ra­tio se­lec­tions in real time. In turn, the Real Gear Shift func­tion pow­ers the patent-pend­ing Multidrive Tech­nol­ogy. This en­ables riders to switch from power-based rou­tines to hill-climb­ing sim­u­la­tions, while the Road Ef­fect sys­tem can read your ped­alling style and set per­for­mance pa­ram­e­ters. SkillBike also fea­tures a range of train­ing pro­grammes and per­for­mance tests for vary­ing fit­ness lev­els, and can be in­te­grated with apps and video games such as Strava, Garmin and Zwift.
