Commonwealth Games gold medallist Linda Villumsen is the new Brand Ambassador for the Revbox ERG, a stationary trainer that was launched early last year by Christchurch based European Sport Imports.
The five time world championship time trialling medallist used the Revbox in her build up to this year’s Glasgow Commonwealth Games, saying it helped improve her strength, pedalling efficiency and was ‘great to do specific training efforts.’
“The Revbox is an important training tool for me,” she says. “It’s compact, light, easy to transport and gives you as hard a work out as you could possibly need, it really comes into its own for strength training and is the best stationary trainer I have ever used, so I’m really happy to now be a brand ambassador for the Revbox.”
The Revbox has recently undergone some subtle improvements that have seen the 12 kilo unit lose over two kilos; it’s now suitable for 10 and 11 speed cassettes along with the option to fit a 12 millimetre through axle if required.
The Revbox has also had a very easy to use chain tensioner added and newly designed side panels made out of durable high performance impact resistant plastic.
Philipp Schacht, Managing Director of European Sport Imports says the company was excited to have Linda on board as a Brand Ambassador. “She’s a world class athlete and gave us some valuable feedback while we were developed the prototypes; we are very happy to have her as part of the Revbox team.”
“The Revbox Erg has been designed to be integrated into an athlete’s year round preparations for their big goals by providing a controlled training environment that will result in vital incremental fitness improvements. It’s perfect for athletes at Linda’s level all the way through to recreational cyclists wanting to get the most out of their training time too.”
