The wattbike offers the closest to riding a road bike, indoors. It is very different and far more advanced than your typical spin bikes
The Wattbike has been independently verified to offer incredible accuracy within 2% across the whole range of Watts. It is factory calibrated for life so you can test and train with absolute confidence.
Real Ride Feel
The Wattbike uses a combination of air and magnetic resistance to deliver the distinctive feel of riding a bike out on the road.
Fully adjustable setup
The ability to minutely adjust the saddle and handlebar positions means the Wattbike can be used by almost anyone and gives the opportunity to re-create the fit and feel of your usual bike.
The Polar View is a unique tool which monitors exactly how you distribute power as you pedal. It highlights imbalances and allows you to train with never before seen precision. Using the Polar View you can become a smoother, faster, more efficient cyclist.
The Model B Performance Monitor measures over 40 parameters, including power, cadence and heart rate, over 100 times per second. The monitor gives you the ability to create your own sessions and even undertake pre-programmed fitness tests.
The Performance Monitor on the Wattbike Trainer is Bluetooth enabled, which means you can use it in conjunction with the powerapp to record and analyse your data like never before.
Heart Rate Monitor Compatible
The Wattbike Trainer is compatible with a variety of different heart rate monitors including all Garmin, Suunto, Polar and MyZone models as well as other ANT and ANT+ devices.
The Wattbike connects to many popular training apps and devices including the Wattbike Hub, Strava and Garmin.

What do I need to bring
If you are coming along to a session you should bring:
- Towel to have in the studio with you
- Suitable clothing to exercise in – you don’t necessarily need cycling shorts but it will be more comfortable if you do use them
- Small padlock if you want to use our lockers
- Cycling shoes – the Wattbikes have pedals with toeclips/straps as well as spd clipless pedals, we also have limited numbers of SPD-SL and Look pedals too. Trainers are perfectly Ok but you will find it easier and more comfortable to use cycling shoes, especially if you do a lot of cycling
- Water bottle – you will sweat a lot so rehydrating is important. If you don’t have a water bottle we sell them in our shop
We would strongly recommend one of our induction classes. These happen most days and during this session we show you how to use the Wattbike and ensure you are correctly set-up on the bike. We also take you through a short 3 minute fitness test which will allow us to to work out you heart and power training zones. You can book a slot on an induction class on the booking calendar below .
