Testing, testing

Body bike test FTP

At BODY BIKE®, we don’t think test facilities should be hidden away behind the scenes. We want to get our products out there, being used, put through their paces by exercisers. We want our bikes to be pushed to the limit – and beyond.

That’s why we’re so proud to unveil our new test facility in our home town of Frederikshavn, Denmark, in collaboration with Sports Center Nord.

The new facility will primarily serve as Sports Center Nord’s indoor cycling studio, used to deliver daily group workouts to the club’s members… but it will also serve as BODY BIKE’s external testing facility, demo studio and showroom, complementing our head office and production facility which are already located in the city.

The perfect experience

The new test facility features 20 brand new BODY BIKE SMART®+ bikes, as well as Intelligent Cycling’s virtual training software and instructor tools.

Intelligent Cycling is based on watt and individual FTP (Functional Threshold Power). Riders can either estimate or test their FTP, and can then adjust their cycling resistance and cadence as they progress through a workout, making sure they’re following a simple colour-coded scale throughout. It’s easy for riders at all levels to follow, and ensures everyone gets the right intensity of workout based on their current fitness levels.

This is all brought to life using Intelligent Cycling´s virtual reality platform – The Journey – which overlays futuristic footage of virtual cycling tracks onto the intervals of the workout, drawing riders into the workout and visually inspiring and motivating them to dig deep for those climbs.

It’s the perfect workout experience, and an opportunity for both rider and instructor to make the most of every ride.

Open to all

Having created such a complete, working facility – able to deliver everything from product testing to events – we want to make sure we maximise its potential.

Our first task was to introduce the new facility, its bikes and the fantastic technology on offer to local instructors. That meant educating them in using the new SMART®+ bike; introducing them to WATT training and its benefits; and showing them how to do a workout using the BODY BIKE indoor cycling app combined with Intelligent Cycling.

Those sessions were highly popular, so we’re extending the offer out to everyone: whether you’re a club owner, instructor or rider, if you want to try out the SMART®+ bike, experience Intelligent Cycling, or if you’re planning an event and would like to use the facility, please feel free to contact BODY BIKE®.
