Dani King MBE launches IC7 Indoor Cycle

“The most relevant, smoothest, static bike I have ever trained on!”

Olympic Champion cyclist and ‘Team Matrix’ Ambassador, Dani King MBE, officially launched the power-based Matrix IC7 Indoor Cycle and Coach by Color® Power Program to the UK market at Leisure Industry Week.

The IC7 is the latest product in the Matrix Fitness portfolio to be ‘Powered by ICG®’, and boasts indoor cycling’s first two-stage drivetrain, which enables the market’s most accurate (+/-1%) direct Wattrate® (Power) meter. The bike’s performance metrics are delivered to the rider via the patent-pending Coach By Color® Training Console, which vividly displays the user’s effort and power in various coloured zones.
