Precor expands Spinner range with new Spinner Climb

The Spinner Climb augments the Spinner series and provides operators with an extensive range of bikes to choose from with choices of friction or magnetic resistance.
– Steve Carter, managing director at Precor UK

Group training is a trend that is here to stay. It first appeared in the top 20 of ASCM’s worldwide survey of fitness trends in 2017 at no. 6 and then at no. 2 in 2018, which is where it has stayed for 2019, just under wearable technology, which took the top spot. The latest research by DataHub, taken between September 2017 and August 2018, found indoor cycling has the third highest participation and was the most popular programme for males.

To keep at the forefront of trends and customer needs Precor has added to its extensive Spinner bike portfolio Precor has launched the Spinner Climb. The new bike answers the need of operators looking to enhance their non-power classes with a low maintenance, premium bike, with the option to add the Spinner® Studio Console, which is compatible with most leaderboard solutions on the market.

Riders will appreciate premium features including a patent-pending magnetic resistance system, which delivers an equal increase with every turn of the knob, without sudden jumps in resistance, as well as a Kevlar reinforced timing belt drive for a quiet ride with a slight chain-like feel and a great overall bike fit, with the maximum number of adjustments for the seat and handlebars.

Operators benefit from features aimed at low maintenance ownership, including an all-aluminium frame and nylon levelling feet that resist corrosion; a drive train belt with a 10-year warranty and no required adjustments.

Steve Carter, managing director at Precor UK comments: “The Spinner Climb augments the Spinner series and provides operators with an extensive range of bikes to choose from with choices of friction or magnetic resistance. Enabling them to strengthen the group exercise options within their facility while providing an enhanced Spinning experience and personalised ride for exercisers.”

The Spinner range also includes the Spinner Chrono, measuring power and offering a hassle-free experience for operators, instructors and rider alike. With direct power measurement, patent-pending magnetic resistance and the brightest console back light in the industry, which is self-powered so no batteries needed. It delivers the most accurate way to measure personal performance on an indoor cycle.

The Spinner Shift and the Spinner Ride both feature a 43 lb perimeter weighted flywheel to help give exercisers a signature experience of smooth, fluid motion and narrow pedal spacing to improve feel and performance. Like the entire Spinner® range they are designed to ride like an outdoor road bike, with geometry and adjustments to suit a wide range of riders while providing a personalised experience. The Spinner® Shift, with its heavier steel frame is ideal for facilities that hold an abundance of classes and is perfect for any level of rider, while the Ride™ is a great option for facilities offering 10 or fewer classes a week.

Each bike in the Spinner range can also be fitted with an easy-to-read Spinning Studio console presenting the latest Spinning console technology, which automatically pairs with any ANT+ compatible heart rate monitor. The console also features a large backlit display indicating cadence (pedal RPM), heart rate/pulse, time, distance and calories along with a low battery indicator.

With over 20 years of experience, Spinning has cultivated a programme that delivers the highest level of group indoor cycling. Official Spinning® facilities can use the globally recognised brand to attract new exercisers and increase revenue. The education through Spinning is built to ensure full success in your facility and deliver what research clearly shows customers want.
