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.

Precor has partnered with VO2 Media to create RunTV, a new streaming service for the company’s P82 and P62 consoles which are used on its cv equipment.

Designed to provide special exercise experiences for users of all abilities, RunTV offers a range of short, immersive films, set in extreme environments and iconic locations, to inspire exercisers.

Compatible consoles automatically sync to the video and adjusts to the resistance and incline to make the experience as real-to-life as possible, while actual video footage immerses and motivates users.

Kevin Hewitt, president of VO2 Media, says: “We wanted people to feel they can escape the gym and RunTV was born to deliver on this, with a mission to upgrade the gym experience.

“With its range of rich, curated and immersive multimedia programming, it will keep exercisers engaged, motivated and coming back for more,” he concluded.

Jeff Bartee, principal product manager at Precor, comments: “Precor continually strives to improve the exerciser experience, offering choice and personalisation. RunTV will bring the exerciser experience on Precor cardio equipment to life.”
