The Revbox Power App is another important step for the developers of the Revbox Erg as they work towards establishing it as the best wind braked, low inertia cycle trainer in the world.

The team behind the revolutionary stationary cycle trainer are very excited Revbox Erg users will be able to use the Revbvox Power App to read power, speed, cadence and heart rate along with other training relevant information to get most out of their Revbox Erg training sessions.

Revbox Development Engineer and Partner Robert Durham has been working hard with the App’s Developer and technicians to build the best training App to compliment the Revbox Erg. “It’s been a real team effort with a focus on delivering something that will add some real value to those training with a Revbox Erg,” Durham said.

Philipp Schacht, Partner and Director of Revbox New Zealand, said it was ‘really exciting’  as the team took another vital step to ensure Revbox Erg users get the most out of their training.

Schacht said the Revbox Power App would be available in late August. Training sessions in the more advanced App will be able to be uploaded directly into Trainingpeaks to monitor progress and success. Revbox New Zealand planned to develop training plans specifically made for the Revbox Erg which will be available for download directly onto a smartphone or tablet.

This first release of the Revbox Power App will only be available for Android smartphones and tablets with plans to include Apple IOS in September or October. The Revbox Power App will also work with earlier versions of the Revbox Erg and sensors will be available from Revbox New Zealand from late August.

The standard version of the Revbox Power App can be downloaded for free from Google Play and the sensorkit will cost $NZ199 purchased directly from the Revbox Erg website. (www.revbox.co.nz)

About the Revbox Erg

The Revbox Erg builds on the basic erg concept. It uses air braking to create resistance, and the very low inertia minimises the amount of momentum gained from the machine, meaning that without any outside factors to interfere, you can retrain your brain and body to use a perfect pedal stroke. Existing muscles in the legs and lower core are activated and grow stronger, and the body learns to use new muscle groups if required; the neurological activation this causes helps your body learn to perform better and more efficiently.

 

What the Revbox Erg can deliver (at a glance)

  • Enhanced muscle activation throughout the whole pedal stroke
  • The ability to smooth and improve the pedal stroke by listening to the sound of the machine
  • Perfect strength and endurance training for cyclists, runners and swimmers
  • Consistent and precise training in a controlled environment
  • Proven results for professional athletes as well as weekend cyclists of every age and ability
  • Excellent rehabilitation after accidents and injury due to its low inertia
  • Additional app can show accurate power, heart rate, cadence, calories, speed, distance and more
  • Additional app can connect and upload data to TrainingPeaks and other training programs
  • Train with - or against - your mates everywhere in the world on a video screen

What makes the Revbox so different?

  • Low inertia, which helps you learn to pedal the right way for your body
  • The use of air braking creates resistance; your own efforts drive the results
  • Very compact; easy to transport and set up
  • Compatible with 10 and 11-speed drivetrains as well as 12mm through axles
