Technogym has expanded its Skill range of cardiovascular equipment with the launch of the SkillBike.

Designed for performance and athletic training, the SkillBike features real gear shift technology, via a patent that allows users to experience the dynamics of hill riding, simply by shifting gears.

The design simulates the feel of an outdoor bike, with an ergonomically designed frame and handlebar that can accomodate different riding styles and positions.

Other features include a road-effect system that’s designed to replicate the feeling of outdoor riding, and multidrive technology which enables riders to switch between training modes.

The bike also includes a number of integrated training programmes that can be tailored to the user’s needs and fitness goals.

In addition, the SkillBike has an interactive interface that offers users feedback and enables them to track performance.

“The SkillBike is a versatile product, boasting a host of innovative and engaging features to deliver a great training experience,” says Steve Barton, MD at Technogym.
