Indoor bike specialist Wattbike appoint Johnson Health Tech Australia (JHTA) as new distributor for Pro and Trainer models.
This weekend saw the announcement of JHTA as the new Australian distributor for all future sales and service of the Wattbike Pro and Trainer models.
Known for its accurate performance characteristics as well as unrivalled and robust built qualities, the Wattbike is a complete winner in the indoor cycling arena and is used throughout the world by gyms and health clubs, sporting institutes, professional sports teams, elite athletes, military, performance training centres and even has its place in home gyms (I want one!).
JHTA Managing Director Gary Peak commented “Wattbike boasts a long and proud history both here in Australia and around the world, and we’re thrilled to receive the opportunity to support their growth in Australia.”
Gary further adding “We’re delighted to be able to offer our customers and prospects a product that has become the training tool of choice for cycling champions and professional athletes around the world. As the world’s most highly engineered training bike, one that offers an open digital platform (users can access workouts from anywhere), the Wattbike Pro and Trainer will facilitate our quest to deliver an ever improving and always market leading customer experience.”
The Wattbike has become a huge favourite in gyms across Australia and is deeply embedded in the programs of teams across both rugby codes and AFL.
Originally designed by British Cycling coaches and scientists to replicate the sensation of ‘real’ cycling and aimed at delivering accurate performance data and technical feedback, the Wattbike Pro and Trainer is like no other bike.
Choosing a new distributor was an extremely important decision as Wattbike’s Commercial Managing Director John Wilson said “Johnson Health Tech showed that they hold the same core values of quality and service as us, and we are pleased that they have added the Wattbike brand to their portfolio of products.”
Here are just a few features of the Pro and Trainer models:-
- Dual resistance – air brake and magnetic brake with a maximum of 3760W (Wattbike Pro)
- Kevlar reinforced belt
- Wireless connectivity supporting apps that are ANT+ and FE-C compatible
- Over 37 metrics are measured during your ride with a +/-2% accuracy (the best in the business)
- Polar View – a unique (and very cool) analysis of your left versus right pedalling efficiency and power output
- No power supply required
An announcement on the Wattbike Atom, the lighter and smaller (and awesome) home version of the Pro/Trainer, (currently unavailable in Australia) has yet to be made.
