The KOMPAN fitness bike combines the advanced technology and features associated with indoor exercise bikes with a durable outdoor design. This means it’s perfect for unsupervised public spaces and parks as well as dedicated outdoor sports areas such as gyms, leisure centres and sports clubs. Users can easily adjust saddle height and cycling resistance to match their body, posture and fitness level. And, in what is a world first, it is now possible for users to track workout power, cadence and calories on a stationary bike designed for outdoor public spaces. Empowering people to track their performance and progress towards their goals makes them far more likely to stick to a workout routine and stay active.
