Indoor Coach

FILTER

If the weather is uncomfortably cold or wet and your motivation for biking shrinks, you can of course train indoors. Are you looking for a little variety in your roller training or would you rather do structured training units on a Smart Indoor Trainer? There is a suitable device for almost every taste on the market.

There are many different ways to cycle indoors , but the concept of different bicycle trainers is fundamentally different. That is why there are so many terms and designations for indoor trainers.

With the classic roller trainer the rear axle is clamped and the tyre drives a roller. The resistance is controlled electronically or mechanically and, depending on the model, can be adjusted by remote control. The disadvantage of some roller trainers is the noise and wear and tear as well as slipping of the tyre at high torque. Therefore, special roller trainer tyres should be used. Because of the comparatively low price, simplicity and low effort, the classic roller trainer is widely used.

On a free roller the complete bike is driven on three rollers. This concept requires good coordination, a lot of attention and some practice. The riding experience is not the same as a fixed roller trainer. Free roller trainers can of course also be linked to various training platforms via Bluetooth or ANT+. For strenuous interval training, you should have some experience.

For an indoor trainer with direct drive, the rear wheel is removed and a flywheel is connected to the chain via the cassette. This allows a direct transmission of power and also usually a lower noise level than with classic roller trainers. The current models all have a Bluetooth or ANT+ interface to connect to a smartphone or tablet. The resistance of the flywheel can also be varied in this way.

Complete smart Indoortrainer bikes look like a spinning bike. They are mostly customizable indoor bikes with racing bike handlebars and gears etc. The geometry of many models can also be adapted. However, these large indoor bikes take up a lot of space, because you can't simply stow away such a device.
