What is the difference between a Wattbike Pro and a Trainer?

The Wattbike Pro and Trainer have the same functionality and ride feel, with the only difference being the resistance.  The Wattbike Trainer offers light to medium resistance (0-2000w) and a Wattbike Pro offers medium to high resistance (0-3760W).

Which resistance is right for you?

There are a few factors that inform which bike would be most suited for you and your situation all of which have an interplay on which resistance would be most suited.

  • If you want to have multiple users of the Wattbike, including children and partners, we would recommend the Wattbike Trainer
  • If you are an experienced athlete or have a history in sports that involve explosive power such as rugby or sprinting, then we would suggest the Wattbike Pro would be most suited to your needs
  • If you are a lighter individual (80kg or less), looking to use the Wattbike for endurance training, or for weight management, then the Trainer would be more suitable
  • As a rough guide, an FTP of 325w or an MMP of 460w or above you may be better suited to the Pro

All the above factors need to be considered when deciding which bike is most suited to you, no one factor above can be considered in isolation of the others.
