The Wattbike has been designed with British Cycling's coaches and scientists to replicate the sensation of 'real' cycling and be the first factory calibrated static bike to deliver accurate, consistent performance data and technical feedback. It is used by World and Olympic Champions in the UK and around the world but is equally suitable for use in schools, gyms, at home or for cross training for almost any sport.

There are two versions of the Wattbike - the Pro and the Trainer. Choosing which is right for you is a matter of knowing how powerful a cyclist you are and what type of training you will be doing
The Wattbike Pro has a resistance range of 0-3,760 Watts and broadly has five endurance levels (Air Brake 1-5) and five sprint levels (Air Brake 6-10). The magnetic brake extends the resistance range and is useful for specific training of top sprinters.
If you are a track sprinter the Pro is definitely the bike for you. It is also ideal for Category 4 (male) and Category 2 (female) endurance cyclists and triathletes. At this level the Wattbike Pro offers the right combination of cadence and resistance range needed for effective training.
The Wattbike Trainer has a resistance range of 0-2,000 Watts and you can recreate almost every Wattbike Pro resistance setting using a combination of the air and magnetic brakes. The essential difference is that the Wattbike Trainer provides a lighter range of resistance at the lower end which opens up Wattbike to everyone that the Wattbike Pro does not cater for. It’s also very useful for high cadence/low resistance exercise so will also suit high level track and endurance cyclists as well as children and general non-cyclists.
