The difference between the Trainer and the Pro model of Wattbikes lies in the resistance, the Trainer offers 0-2000w and the Pro offers 0-3760w of resistance. The Trainer model will suit most people looking to improve fitness or manage their weight, but the pro model offers a wider resistance range for athletes looking to train and improve performance. As the cardio machine of choice for Olympiads, Rugby Players and athletes worldwide, the Wattbike is the perfect tool for your training.
All of our hire machines come with a Model B, Bluetooth enabled monitor featuring ANT+ capability. To connect the Wattbike to popular cycling apps such as Zwift, Strava and Sufferfest, you will need to purchase an ANT dongle which is available via the Wattbike website.
