The CycleOps 400 Pro Indoor Cycle is the most technologically advanced model they make. What differentiates it from the not-unimpressive 300 Pro model is that it uses CycleOps’ Controlled Resistance Technology. This allows the 400 Pro’s Joule 3.0 computer to conduct saved workouts for you, where the resistance has been programmed in ahead of time. You can remove the Joule 3.0 and use it on your road bike to record your favorite training loop. Have an early season race with a monster hill? Recon the course, download and edit the data, then upload back to the Joule. Ride it over and over to become familiar with the rhythm of the climb. You’ll also be able to create a ride from scratch, controlling target power outputs, slopes up or down and gearing.It comes with the Joule 3.0 cycling computer as standard equipment. The Joule, in combination with the built-in PowerTap power meter in the rear flywheel, will allow you to track a variety of information as you ride – Power in watts and w/kg and see your current, average, and max. Power zone, average power zone, and max power zone. Peak power for 5 sec, 5 min, and 20 min. WKO+ metrics: training stress score, normalized power, and intensity factor. Work measured in kilojoules, kilojoules per hour and calories. Cadence: current, average, and max. Heart rate: current, average, and max. Speed: current, average, and max. Climbing: current grade, current altitude, and total ascent. VAM: vertical ascent, current altitude, and total ascent. Ride: time, distance, and time of day. You can save a good number of rides on the Joule 3.0 CPU before downloading them to your computer, depending on ride time, of course. We’ve saved up to 20 rides, and it accepts a Micro SD card to expand the storage capacity.The Joule 3.0 uses ANT+ technology to communicate wirelessly with the PowerTap hub and the included heart rate strap. If you choose to use the Joule 3.
This is the do-it-all-do-it-everywhere bike. Let’s say you find a shortcut to work. But that shortcut takes you through a winding forest road and up and down a gnarly bike track before dropping you out onto the concrete streets of downtown. This varied terrain excursion seems impossible. But not for Retrospec Bicycles’s UrbanCross Amok-16. This is the ultimate cyclocross commuter, equipped with 16 speeds, Shimano STI shifters, and cantilever brakes. The 4130 Chromoly frame is hand-built, tig-welded, and double-butted. This means you can zig and zag every single day and feel great knowing your bike is up to the challenge. The Shimano 2400 Claris 16 speed drivetrain with STI shifters is top-notch and almost exclusively on top tier bicycles because of their reputation for accuracy, control, and dependability. The shift function is integrated into the brake levers for a clean handlebar setup. Talking about handlebars, we put drop handlebars on this badass CX bicycle because we want you to be able to ride as aerodynamically as possible. The rear brake cable is routed on top of the top tube to avoid snagging fabric when carrying the bike. We’ve also stuck Kenda Small Block 8 CX tires on this beast of a bike for comfort and reliability. The unique tread disperses water so you grip the road where the road needs to be gripped. The sealed mechanism bottom bracket and hubs will keep mud and muck out of crucial bearings, keeping your bike healthy and safe so it can keep you up to speed.
This is the fastest entry level Tri Bike we have ever made. Cutouts in frame material yielded smoother lines which have resulted in increased aerodynamics and incredible results in wind tunnel testing. We know most of the drag in a TT ride comes from the rider not the bike. Using this knowledge we worked to leverage optimal positioning while maintaining comfort to make ride position more aerodynamic. Our model with the typical rider position outperformed the competition. This machine was built with the typical age group triathlete in mind, not the elite top of the class rider, the reality is most of us are not able to maintain the same aggressive position as the world class athlete. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice ultimate performance just because you can’t maintain a very aggressive riding position. The T1 is built for the majority of the triathlete market, tested for the typical rider position and made to perform the best in all conditions. The T1 is 21.4 stiffer with its tapered headtube and is a more nimble corner because of how the front end can now turn more effectively without compromising performance. The bottom bracket has been redesigned to maximize stiffness while maintaining the best overall balance for great handling characteristics. Changing the design stiffened the bottom bracket by 12.4, due to an increased width through the center axle while maintaining the same Q-factor. The goal was a success, we optimized pedaling efficiency for the rider and were able to better increase power transfer from your effort to watts on the bike. The Z1’s adaptability is our key to success – if you are more comfortable on your TT bike you will perform better on your TT bike.
