Take your cycling workout to a higher level
CompuTrainer is more than a premier bike trainer. Itis best in its class by a wide margin and sets the industry standard for accuracy (± 2.5%), power (1500 watts), quality, and service lifetime (10+ years). Exclusive performance features like SpinScan™ electronic pedal stroke analysis and Adjustable Aerodynamic Drag Factor are unique to CompuTrainer. Cycling and triathlon coaches worldwide use CompuTrainer as their primary testing instrument. USA Triathlon and USA Cycling test and train their team athletes with CompuTrainer. For the individual it’s like having a personal exercise physiology lab.
More powerful than other wind trainers and electronic bike trainers (except the Velotron, also by RacerMate), CompuTrainer has a peak power rating in excess of 1500 Watts to simulate road grades up to 15%.
1. The Aerodynamic Drag Factor in the CompuTrainer software algorithm is now individually adjustable, an industry first. It allows the rider to adjust the ADF to account for his own body geometry and riding position. CompuTrainer accuracy increases another notch.
2. 2007 marked the introduction of a landmark improvement in the CompuTrainer interactive training experience:
Interactive REAL Course Videos. Videos of famous triathlon and bike courses are filmed in High Definition and are then combined with our interactive, GPS mapped software to make you feel like you’re on the real course. Filming of complete bike courses on race day provides superior realism and race simulation. Ironman® and Ironman® 70.3 bike courses are exclusively available from RacerMate. View HERE for latest available courses along with sample videos.
State of the art interactive 3D graphics
You'll be amazed at the realism of CompuTrainer's 3D interactive graphics. Curves, split screens, and panoramic helicopter views combine with advanced computer algorithms to create the true "feel of the road". Select from multiple scenery packs: Rolling Green Hills, Painted Desert, Grand Tetons, Atlanta, Okanogan Falls or Seattle (home town of CompuTrainer). Real time representation of essential data such as power output, heartrate, current speed, real-time & average values are given. CompuTrainer 3D Software is the result of over 15 years of continuous development by more than a dozen top level software designers, engineers and computer graphics programmers.
Gain power and efficiency with Spinscan™
SpinScan Pedal Stroke Analyzer™ is an exclusive CompuTrainer feature that helps you increase power and efficiency. The multicolor torque graph represents one full 360 revolution divided into 15 segments. The left /right leg percentage power splits give you the feedback needed to pedal in “circles”. It will identify “flat” or “dead” spots in the pedal stoke where optimal power is not transferred to the drive train. A dynamic bike fit utilising SpinScan™ is an excellent way to take the subjectivity and guesswork out of the bike fit process. And the ATA (Average Torque Angle) displayed on the Polar Graph helps you to adjust your position for optimum power.
Unlimited pre-loaded courses - custom and downloadable
By pre-training on a simulated course you gain a big advantage in the actual race.
