Wat­tbike Atom

Cycling Weekly - - HOT KIT -

“The Atom is the most in­tu­itive, in­tel­li­gent and ac­cu­rate in­door trainer on Earth,” as­serts Not­ting­ham­based Wat­tbike.

You know how in our smart turbo grouptests we usu­ally whinge about how heavy they are and how we can’t lift them into the boot of a car? Well, at 44kg the Atom — some­thing of a mis­nomer — ain’t go­ing nowhere once you’ve got it set up at home, so just ac­cept it.

Set-up in­volves a bike-fit: you ad­just sad­dle height, set­back etc to the same as your out­door bike. It also has fully ad­justable han­dle­bars with time trial ex­ten­sions that neatly in­cor­po­rate a shelf for your smart de­vice, which will act as your screen. Or use your own bars; you can swap out the sad­dle and pedals for your own too.

As for its con­nec­tiv­ity, it’s just like us­ing a smart turbo: pair it with your de­vice and you can use Zwift, hit a Train­erroad ses­sion, Suf­fer­fest or what­ever you usu­ally do and ‘en­joy’ what Wat­tbike calls Real Ride Feel, which repli­cates the re­sis­tance and sen­sa­tion of rid­ing on the road.

Price £1,599
