The revolutionary Group Cycle™ Connect bikes are powered by the rider’s motion through an innovative battery-free system that accurately tracks heart rate, calories, and much more, that are displayed directly on the bike’s console for you to see and track throughout your workout.

Group Cycle™ Connect enables our trainers to customise each class, driving peak performance through a series of on screen prompts to keep you motivated at all times!

 


CONTROL CONSOLE – The new self-powered Console is powered by the rider’s motion through an innovative battery-free system connected to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Its LCD display is fully enclosed within a splash-proof casing to keep moisture out, and is LED-backlit, ensuring high-contrast visibility to the user, even in dark gym environments. The console also provides a continuous heart rate reading from a Bluetooth Smart heart rate chest strap.

 

ACCURATE DATA TRACKING – Group Cycle™ Connect provides scientific tracking of the power output (watts) with a +/- 2% accuracy, enabling riders to track the most accurate fitness data available to them. This includes heart rate, elapsed time, speed, calorie consumption, distance covered, maximum cadence and maximum power reached, and total MOVEs. Riders can easily log-into their personal profiles through the mywellness app account to track performance and compare results over time.

 

EASY SETTINGS – Group Cycle™ Connect easy to use, patent pending ‘On-The-Fly Settings’ enable four-way adjustments in ride with one simple touch providing optimal cycling positions for all riders. The flywheel resistance system is equipped with a magnetic resistance knob that displays intuitive graphics and provides tactile feedback every 45° as riders make adjustments between the 20 resistance levels incredibly easy and precise. The selected resistance level is displayed on the Console. This can all be adjusted as the riders’ exercise on the bike so it doesn’t disrupt their ride.

 

NATURAL FEELING – Group Cycle™ Connect provides the smoothest and most consistent ride replicating an outdoor road bike feel due to the reduced Q factor, frictionless poly v-belt and calibration free power readout. Group Cycle™ Connect is available in yellow and light grey each with a splash-proof frame casing.
