A strong robot-welded frame provides a solid base for the indoor bike. All frame parts are made from powder coated steel, except for the front tube and saddle tube. These parts are made from powder coated stainless steel providing the frame with extra strength in the areas where the adjustment handles are tightened. Front- and saddle posts, handlebar and saddle mounting fittings are all stainless steel, completely eliminating problems of rust and deterioration.
The pedal arm is a critical component on an indoor bike as it needs to withstand a huge load. BODY BIKE has taken the consequences of this and designed their own pedal arm. The BODY BIKE Connect comes with this special designed and unbreakable BODY BIKE pedal arm in cast iron, 170mm / 6,7inch. The pedal arm is compatible with all standard pedals.
The cycling experience on a BODY BIKE cannot be compared to anything. A poly V-belt system ensures a smooth and quiet thread while the 20kg / 44lbs flywheel provides a natural cycling experience. Crank and flywheel is in processed cast iron and there are used high quality SKF bearings. Deployment of the integrated emergency brake easily stops the interior system from rotating. BODY BIKE Connect comes with a special designed friction free mounting of the brake unit and by the use of a load cell with strain gauges all external factors are eliminated resulting in accurate watt measurements. The brake unit has the lubrication free BODY BIKE Synthetic Brake Pad.
The side covers enclose the interior system of the indoor bike and protect it from dust and perspiration. They give the indoor bike a long lifespan and make it easy to maintain. The covers also provide a safety for the user as unintended contact to the rotating flywheel is eliminated. Even though the BODY BIKE Connect is completely closed, the interior of the indoor bike is easily accessible through the service hatches ensuring that maintenance can be carried out quickly and easily. On the rear end of the indoor bike there is a reinforced area for stretching.
The BODY BIKE Performance Console is fitted right in front of the cyclist on an adjustable mount. The navigation line makes it easy to navigate between the 5 screens showing valuable feedback from your training effort. It has an acryl lens and a LCD Display of the FSTN type for added sharpness and contrast. The console is IPX2 waterproof.
The BODY BIKE Connect handlebar and related fittings are made from stainless steel. The handlebar is rubber coated to ensure a firm and comfortable grip, and the bar ends offer multiple position choices. Adjustments can be made both horizontally and vertically to provide the optimal cycling experience and the thumb screw eliminates play in the handlebar. The adjustments are made with large adjustment handles and can be operated even with sweaty palms. The handlebar comes with the “Wave” bottle holder which places your Ipod Nano, member card, pulse watch and two water bottles within easy reach.
The bottom frame and the bottom frame mountings of the BODY BIKE Connect is made from stainless steel and then electro-polished to give it a smooth surface, easy to wipe off after use.
