The SPINPower technology is unique because it tells riders how hard they are working, allows them to measure progress, and tells them what fitness variables they need to change.

SPINPower program features:
A Personal Spinning Threshold Test (PST) informs the creation of customized SPINPower training zones.
Post-ride data analysis allows a rider to monitor and evaluate progress, and compare those results over time.
The Spinner Blade ION provides an accurate measurement of how many calories a rider is burning.
