It is THE indoor training bicycle! The Wattbike was created with British Cycling to provide an affordable indoor bike for training and testing that is suitable for everyone from school children to Olympic Gold Medallists. Loads of information on www.wattbike.com.

The key difference between the Wattbike and every other indoor bike is that the Wattbike accurately measures power output in Watts. Within seconds we can be accurately measuring your power output, your pedalling technique and heart rate.

Simple Operation

Operating the Wattbike is very easy. Simply adjust the bike to your body, sit on the Wattbike, select ‘Just ride’ from the ‘Main menu’ and start pedalling. The Wattbike Performance Computer will give immediate cycling feedback. The monitor has a powerful list of features and it is simple to use.

Dual Braking System

The Wattbike features a patent protected dual braking system to enable it to recreate the feeling of cycling on the flat and climbing.

Air-braking system

The air-braking system recreates the feel of cycling on the flat using different gears. The ‘gear lever’ can be moved from ‘1’ through to ‘10’, where ‘1’ represents the lowest gear and ‘10’ the highest. The lever regulates the flow of air entering the turbine. By increasing the aperture the flow of air and therefore the resistance is increased.

For most situations the rider will only need to apply the air-braking gear system. You can adjust the ‘gear’ during a workout, just as you would on a road cycle and the sensation is just the same.

Magnetic Braking System

The addition of a magnetic braked flywheel allows the rider to recreate the feel of climbing. The ‘Climb/magnetic’ control rotates clockwise through one complete turn and is marked ‘1’ through to ‘7’, where ‘1’ represents a level road and ‘7’ a very steep one. The effect isn’t linear though as the action of rotating moves a set of magnets closer to the flywheel, so the resulting effect is more logarithmic.

The combination of both systems means that the Wattbike can be used at high cadence low wattage at one training extreme or low cadence high wattage at the other.

At events we set the air braking at a suitable level to facilitate relatively easy pedaling  After all, participants at public events may not be particularly experienced cyclists and we want to help you engage and educate users into becoming ‘better’ cyclists.

Wattbike App

The Wattbike app gives you access to Workouts, Training Plans and Tests and will also save your sessions to the App website.


The Wattbike App connects to your Wattbike Performance Monitor (WPM) using Bluetooth. Once connected you can start a ‘Just Ride’ session or choose from the available Workouts, Plans and Tests. At the end of the session your data is saved to your phone or tablet and also pushed to this site.
