The ergometer training on the Cyclus2 is an effective complementary exercise to road cycling training. Many cyclist, mountain bikers and triathletes, including Olympic champions, world champions and German champions successfully use the Cyclus2 as their training device and profit from the expertise represented by the Cyclus2. We know what matters – talking to professional cyclists. Ergometers quite often have the drawback of being rigid and inflexible training devices with no option for the use of the athlete’s own bike. This easily leads to postural aching, discomfort in the saddle and consequently to an unnatural pedaling technique. Another common disadvantage is the insufficient precision of the devices, which results from the brake system technology and the type of load transmission.
With the Cyclus2 high performance ergometer these problems belong to the past. Cyclists can practise on the Cyclus2 using their own bike, which is fitted into an elastic suspension, which makes extended training sessions on the Cyclus2 an enjoyable experience. The Cyclus2 provides various pre-designed and freely selectable physical load- and intensity-schemes as well as the option to configure them individually. Hence it is the ideal training device, which delivers precise and reproducible load values to the cyclist, irrespective of the intensity. An outstanding feature is that training- and tournament-tracks available as GPS data can be directly imported and realistically simulated by the electronic hardware on the Cyclus2. A particularly motivating workout option is the simulation of a real life tournament track on the cyclus2 using Real Life Video. This option is available in high quality using VirtualTraining on the Cyclus2 (see chapter „Real Life Video“ - Ergometer training with VirtualTraining).
Regeneration, basic endurance, specified competition endurance or strength endurance – the Cyclus2 offers training practise in all common training categories. The Cyclus2 is not only an alternative option for basic endurance training during bad weather, it is the perfect way to accurately and reproducibly control as well as scientifically monitor all physical training values within a load pattern which is a great advantage especially during interval practise. Any training unit on the Cyclus2 can be accurately recorded and saved in the form of a session protocol. Training data recorded on the ergometer can be filed and analysed in the well-known training portals e.g. TrainingPeaks bzw. WKO+ and Web4Trainer in a user-friendly way.
