New Bkool Smart Bike brings the outdoors indoors

Smart bike uses Bkool’s turbo trainer software to deliver courses and structured workouts

Branching out from its base in turbo trainers, Bkool has launched a smart bike. This uses the software developed by Bkool for its smart turbo trainers, transferring it to an exercise bike.

So there are a 5 minute and 20 minute FTP tests, to set up your parameters. You can then choose to follow a structured exercise routine or one of over three million real routes uploaded by Bkool’s user community. The bike will adapt the required effort over time to reflect your increasing fitness levels, setting your training zones to match.

Paul started writing for Cycling Weekly in 2015, covering cycling tech, new bikes and product testing. Since then, he’s reviewed hundreds of bikes and thousands of other pieces of cycling equipment for the magazine and the Cycling Weekly website.

He’s been cycling for a lot longer than that though and his travels by bike have taken him all around Europe and to California. He’s been riding gravel since before gravel bikes existed too, riding a cyclocross bike through the Chilterns and along the South Downs.
