Summer is over and the fall and winter training season will soon be upon us. Avoid the boredom of training indoors alone or the repetition of another crowded, stuffy spin class. Join your friends or teammates for some of the most effective training you can get anywhere. Smart Cycling Bike Shop holds daily indoor training sessions using CompuTrainers beginning this month. Sign up today to reserve your weekly training time. CompuTrainer is the most advanced indoor training device available and the only computerized trainer that offers SpinScan; a built in program that analyzes the athlete’s pedaling.
RacerMate CompuTrainer – A high performance, lab quality ergometer and programmable interactive trainer. It is designed for use with your bike and a Pentium processor personal computer. It can be used as a full computer controlled ergometer or a stand alone power trainer.
The CompuTrainer consists of a steel framed, folding base, a 2,000 watt load generator, a handlebar mounted controller and Windows based interactive software. In addition there are sensors for monitoring cadence and heart rate. All this adds up to a training system that offers systematic, repeatable and accurate exercise that keeps you on track for reaching your personal goals. Make that triathlon, race or group ride performance a reality this coming season with a structured plan on state of the art equipment.
The Stand-alone mode is the most basic set up and does not require connection to a personal computer. It functions as a self contained unit using the software programs imbedded in the handlebar controller and displayed on the LCD display. The Ergometer mode maintains a constant load, like a fixed weight ergometer, which can be set from 50 to 995 watts in 5 watt increments.
The CompuTrainer 3D Software creates an interface between the CompuTrainer and a personal computer. Three dimensional, topographic courses can be created and programmed into the computer to simulate any route; real or imaginary.
In addition the software allows the importation of GPS data from a Garmin 305 global positioning device. The athlete using the CompuTrainer can train alone, against a saved past performance, against a programmable computer opponent or up to seven other CompuTrainers at once.
Displayed training information includes Current Speed (in miles or kilometers), Average Speed, Peak Speed, Current Distance, Watt load, Average Watt load, Peak Watt load, Cadence, Average Cadence, Peak Cadence, Current Pulse, Average Pulse, Peak Pulse, Calories, Current Course Gradient and Current Lead over an opponent if there is one. All this adds up to a system that allows the athlete to monitor all the essential aspects of a structured training program.
In addition to this full range of training features, CompuTrainer also includes a program called Spin Scan. Spin Scan allows the athlete to see an instantaneous representation of their pedaling dynamics. The workload, balance and pedaling efficiency of the athletes’ training session are shown graphically in real time. No other device has this important capability.
