Technology quickly became the key in designing the new KOMPAN Fitness Bike to be relevant and motivating for all people.
The self-powered bike features a virtual fly-wheel giving real road-cycle experience, a default automatic-drive function to make it user-friendly, and digital connection for people wanting to track, store and share workouts. It even gives the opportunity to gamify the biking experience or ride virtual roads through Bluetooth connected apps. Latest technology is here combined with a comfortable yet highly durable design that can last in unsupervised public spaces.

Bio
