We recommend cycling bibs (those are the padded shorts) for ladies and men because it increases your comfort on the bike significantly. However, If you do not own cycling bibs, we do offer soft comfort saddles that work perfectly well with any shorts.

Our Wattbikes are designed for Shimano SPD pedals (MTB) and Look (Road) pedal cleats. You are also able to train in regular trainers if you do not have cycling shoes or cleats to fit our pedals.

Cycling shoes enable you to get a greater workout. Being clipped into the pedals allows you to make more powerful strokes – pulling up on the pedals to work your hamstrings and feel stronger overall.

We have an equal distribution of Wattbike TRAINERS and Wattbike PROS. If you are new to cycling we recommend remaining on a Wattbike TRAINER until your legs have strengthened and your tendons have had time to adjust to your new training. If you are a seasoned rider/athlete you are welcome to ride a Wattbike PRO. Both bikes function the exact same way, but Wattbike PROS offer more resistance from the start.

Wattbike TRAINERS are ideal for burning calories faster.
Wattbike PRO’s are ideal for riders who want to increase their power and climbing strength.

In order to prevent injury and tendon strain we recommend you ride a Wattbike TRAINER for at least 4-6 months before transitioning to a Wattbike PRO. Your progress and training goals will be regularly monitored and discussed with your Wattbike Power Coach when transitioning to a different bike.
