Gymgear’s Pursuit Bike is designed to enhance the performance of beginners and athletes alike. Using the same adjustable air resistance technology as the Blade Rower 2, coupled with an additional magnetic resistance for hill climbing, and when you really want to push yourself to the very limit.
The Smart colour console shows a range performance metrics including watts, and connects to a variety of cycling and fitness apps including, but not limited to: zwift, kinomap, gymtrack, xert, sufferfest, and rgt cycling.
The air-based flywheel on the Pursuit Bike puts the rider in control of intensity at all times. The damper allows the user to adjust the amount of airflow during their ride, to increase or decrease the intensity. The user can increase their power and strength training by adjusting the magnetic resistance on the right-hand side of the flywheel.
The user is able to adjust the magnetic resistance between 1 and 8 levels. Just using the air, the user can mimic 0-15 degrees of incline, add the magnetic too and the user can mimic up to a 35-degree incline.
Pursuit Bike FAQ’s
Q: Can you lose belly fat riding a stationary bike?
A: Yes. Cycling on an indoor bike trainer is a very effective way to reduce belly fat. How many calories you want to burn (300 to 700 kcal per hour) is dependent solely on the intensity of the workout. Steady-state cycling (aerobic training) is very efficient in burning calories but if you want to burn belly fat faster then incorporate HIIT workouts (anaerobic training) into your cycle.
