Dominic Kuprecht

NOHrD, sister brand of WaterRower, has launched the NOHrD Bike after six years of development by NOHrD CEO and lead designer Dominik Kuprecht, who says he was driven by a mission to create an indoor cycle that fuses functionality with style.

Made from solid sustainable hardwood with a steel frame and wear-free braking technology, the bike boasts a number of high-tech features, including advanced planetary gear technology and an eddy brake current which ensure smooth and precise pedal action.

"The needs of the customer at the heart of everything we do"

The bike is available in two options. The NOHrD Bike comes without a monitor to ensure the bike retains its minimalist appearance, instead it is equipped with Bluetooth sensors, which send workout data to the NOHrD Bike app so users can still track their performance, while the NOHrD Bike Pro features a 19-inch touch screen display offering a library of instructor-led classes and virtual rides.

Kuprecht said: “When developing a product, my priority is always to deliver a machine that gives the user a best in class workout experience, only then do we turn our attention to creating something that is also visually stunning.”

Christian Tullberg Poulsen

Airofit, a Denmark-based performance equipment company, has developed a respiratory trainer that it claims can boost athletic performance by up to eight per cent.

Also called Airofit, the trainer combines breathing apparatus with an app that enables users to track their training and progress. The breathing trainer, which users hold in their mouths via a mouthguard, measures breathing volume, strength and patterns during exercise, users can then access this data via the app.

It is designed to enable users to manually adjust the resistance to their required physical needs or preference, while the app offers a range of customisable breathing exercises, each offering different benefits to the user, that enables the user to choose the intensity and duration of their training.

"With Airofit, people can train their vital lung capacity, lung muscle and anaerobic tolerance"

The company claims that with regular use the Airofit trainer can increase lung capacity, improve respiratory strength, boost anaerobic tolerance enable athletes to perform at a higher level for longer.

In addition, it can improve breathing control, reduce stress, decrease recovery times and boost circulation.

Airofit CEO Christian Tullberg Poulsen says: “With Airofit, people can train their vital lung capacity, lung muscle and anaerobic tolerance. Thus, they can achieve better performance and have a better life. That is how we create better breathing in the world”
