COMPUTRAINERS

The CompuTrainer system allows athletes to execute very specific and monitored workouts or replicate training sessions to calculate the exact wattages/cadences required for a successful ride. With countless courses available to train with, and valuable feedback given not only after, but also during each ride, the CompuTrainer provides the most comprehensive and effective indoor cycling experience ever created. Consistent riding sessions on the CompuTrainers can increase an athlete's cycling power by 20 - 30% and speed by 2 to 4 MPH.

CompuTrainers are ideal for:

  • Climbing technique
  • Sprinting and lead-outs
  • Interval training
  • Time trial skills and tactics
  • Triathlon bike handling
  • Team time trial practice

FIELD TESTING

FTP Testing (Functional Threshold Percentage) represents your ability to sustain the highest possible power output over 60 minutes, and is a crucial figure in determining your all-round ability on the bike.  The goal of assessment is to get a snapshot of your current level of fitness which includes a 20-minute power test, following a proper warm up on the Computrainer.  The FTP is calculated by taking 95% of the 20-minute average power.
