Racing bike training at homeIndoor cycles were developped by cyclists in the 1970s. They looked for a possibility to do regular training sessions independent of wind, weather, and time.
Indoor cycles offer everyone the possibility - either cyclist, athlete or leisure sportsman - to do a cardio training effectively. You can lose weight, improve your fitness, strengthen your cardiovascular system or increase your performance with an indoor cycle.
Nowadays almost all gyms offer classes with the indoor cycle. In a group and with loud music you get motivated for new maximum performances. Those who like it more quiet, the indoor cycle at home is definitely the better alternative – at home you can choose your own music and tv programme.
We explain to you what you should pay attention to purchasing an indoor cycle.
The balance massIt's the heart of every indoor cycle: the balance mass. It should be of a rather high weight, because a high balance mass is decisive for a smooth concentric run. The smoothness of a concentric run of an indoor cycle also depends upon the workmanship of the indoor cycle and the type of brake system. We recommend you models from a balance mass of 18 kg.
The brake systemThe most common and most well-known type of brake of an indoor cycle is the felt brake. A metal plate covered with felt is pressed against the flywheel and generates the brake effect. By means of a control knob the pressure of the brake is increased and the training resistance gets increased as well.
There are also the magnetic brake systems. Here, a strong magnet brakes the flywheel, the resistance is set by means of a control knob. The advantage of this version is that the magnetic brake system has no direct contact to the flywheel and works thus completely friction-free, silent, and maintenance-free.
The driveThe drive is responsible for power transmission from pedals to flywheel. Like bicycles, some indoor cycles are still driven with the classic (metal) chain. The disadvantage is that it is much louder while exercising. The main part of indoor cycles produced nowadays is designed for home use and the developers have the target to produce machines as silent as possible. Thus the most indoor cycles are driven by drive belts made of synthetics or Kevlar. These work silently and are maintenance-low. The company Taurus uses Kevlar belts, i. e., for their premium products like the Taurus IC70 Pro and the IC90 Pro. These belts are produced by the company Hutchinson in France and stand for first-class quality.
Sitting comfort, handlebar and adjusting possibilitiesYour indoor cycle should be equipped with a sporty saddle, which supports you optimally in a dynamic cardio training. The handlebar should offer different grip positions, so that your training is varied and you can find the appropriate hand position on the handlebar. Make sure that the handlebar is very stable and non-slip, so that sweaty hands do not slip off and so you can get off the saddle while exercising.
Saddle and handlebar of your indoor cycle should offer you the possibility to change your position in vertical and horizontal position. Many models have quick release locks, which allow you to do your adjustment quickly and easily. An infinitely variable adjustment is ideal, because you can adjust the indoor cycle even better to your height.
