Cybex 500IC Indoor Cycle Benefits
Bike drivetrain systems transmit the power from pedaling to the wheels. Most bikes use a chain to help propel the bicycle forward. A “chainless” bicycle transmits power to the wheels through a mechanism other than a metal chain. In most cases, this is via a belt. The Poly-V belt is quieter, stretches less and transfers more power than other belts. Belts are becoming the norm in Indoor Cycling. They require less maintenance, have fewer breakdowns, improve pedaling technique, permit less momentum-based recovery, make the rider work more efficiently and are safer for new riders. They save the club owner money, decrease liability, make less noise and train participants more effectively.
AWARD-WINNING ICG® DESIGN
In a competitive field made up of all leading international Indoor Cycling providers, ICG® bikes have won best in the “Indoor Cycling” category at the annual BodyLife Awards, the industry’s only recognized independent awards body, seven times since 2005. ICG’s industrial design has been trusted world-over for two decades. We strive to innovate and raise the bar for all our user groups: Owner, Instructor and Rider.
Cybex 500IC Features
POLY-V BELT DRIVETRAIN
Belts require less maintenance, have fewer breakdowns, improve pedaling technique, permit less momentum-based recovery, make the rider work more efficiently, and are safer for new riders. They save the club owner money, decrease liability, make less noise and train participants more effectively.
High-grade aluminum seat and handlebar posts reduce weight, making user-adjustments easier, safer and more durable for the club owner.
DUAL-SIDED SPD-COMPATIBLE PEDALS
Dual-sided pedals enable riders to take a class using either cycling shoes with SPD cleats or gym shoes. SPD cleats are small and recessed in the sole, making it possible to walk around the club without slipping. They are the most widely used pedal system in all of cycling and offer a more connected feeling to the bike, as well as improving performance.
The 15kg Flywheel helps cyclists and non-cyclists alike to develop even, 360-degree technique and better pedal-stroke mechanics. The sensation is smoother, safer, more balanced and more enjoyable. The outcome is a stronger, more efficient workout.
Improves a rider’s performance and promotes a longer bike-life by protecting the frame, resistance assembly and flywheel.
4-WAY SADDLE FIT
Bike fit is often overlooked and undervalued in Indoor Cycling. No matter how much training you do, a poor bike fit will limit your optimum potential. Adjustments on saddle height and saddle fore/aft ensure a great fit for most riders.
HANDLEBAR WATERBOTTLE HOLDER (OPTIONAL)
No hydration system is effective unless you get the fluids into your body. Our optional handlebar-mounted system is front and center, reminding users to drink frequently.
ANT+ CONSOLE (OPTIONAL)
Performance measurement permits the instructor to demonstrate both intensity and effort effectively, and enables the student to gain more from every class. Our ANT+ console shows cadence, heart rate and calorie expenditure, giving students immediate and valuable feedback on their training.
