The Watt Bike
At Spectrum Healthcare the Wattbike is incorporated into our Strength and Conditioning programs. Comprehensive data recording allows our practitioners to assess and monitor maximum power output, fatigue and test endurance. It is a great tool to gauge the progress of rehabilitation or the fitness levels of our elite level athletes.
The Wattbike has been developed in association with British Cycling and endorsed by Cycling Australia.
It is the first indoor bike calibrated to replicate the sensation of riding on the road, this is achieved by the unique air brake construction which allows the flywheel to keep spinning like a road bike.
The bike is equipped with accurate, real-time monitoring technology, recording data including:
- Power output produced from applied force
- Heart rate
- Pedalling technique
The data can be measured in Power (watts), Energy (joules), Speed (km/hr) and Pace (time per km).
