Race Hub is home to a fantastic studio of Wattbike indoor cycles which will transform the way you train.

Developed in association with British Cycling and used by top athletes and sports clubs, Wattbikes are the only indoor cycle to ‘feel’ like riding a real bike and at the same time deliver accurate, consistent performance data and technical feedback. We are passionate about the benefits Wattbike can bring to your training. It’s why the cycling, triathlon and fitness worlds have been so excited!

Discover Wattbike today at Race Hub.

“I LOVE the classes! They really push me and I can really see the progress I am making each time since I started as a beginner.”

 

MORE ABOUT WATTBIKE

The Wattbike allows everyone from complete beginners to elite athletes to experience the same ultimate training tool!  The Wattbike is increasingly the training tool of choice for athletes other than cyclists and triathletes, with rugby players, track and field athletes and many more using the Wattbike to optimise performance gains.

The Wattbike studio is available for individuals to book a class or ‘free ride’ session but we also take bookings from clubs, squads and teams for group sessions, with or without an instructor.  Please contact us directly to discuss the specific needs of your group.

Regular gym wear is fine, bear in mind that you are likely to get very hot during sessions.  A pair of cycling shorts with an chamois (padded!) will greatly add to your personal comfort during the session.

You can use regular trainers (with toe cages) but we recommend hard soled cycling shoes and all our Wattbikes come with reversible SPD pedals accepting both a standard shimano SPD and Look Keo cleats.

Don’t forget to bring:

Your cycling shoes

A towel (mandatory!)

Drinks bottle

We recommend that you book a 40 minute ‘induction’ during which we will cover the basics to allow you to get the most from your class or individual booking.  Your instructor will take you through the following:

  • Bike set up and personal sizing*
  • Bike familiarisation including bike numbers, data and pedalling technique
  • 3 minute aerobic test to establish individual training zones.

*we recommend you bring the measurements from your own bike / bike fit to optimise comfort and training specificity on the Wattbike.

You can book an induction by emailing claire@racehub.uk.

As a minimum, you will need to complete an online video induction to familiarise you with the Wattbike and monitor to allow you to use the equipment safely and get the most from your session. Click here for the online induction (coming soon!)
