CompuTrainer provides the most interesting indoor bike experience yet created. It increases your cycling power by 20 to 30% and your speed by 2 to 4 MPH. Whatever your starting point, you’ll improve significantly.

CompuTrainer is best in its class by a wide margin. It sets the industry standard for accuracy (± 2.5%), power (1500 watts), quality, and service lifetime (10+ years). Exclusive performance features like SpinScan™ electronic pedal stroke analysis and Adjustable Aerodynamic Drag Factor are unique to CompuTrainer. Cycling and triathlon coaches worldwide use CompuTrainer as their primary testing instrument. USA Triathlon and USA Cycling test and train their team athletes with CompuTrainer.

Two important technical innovations in have significantly increased CompuTrainer’s training value:
 
1. The Aerodynamic Drag Factor in the CompuTrainer software algorithm is now individually adjustable, an industry first. It allows the rider to adjust the ADF to account for his own body geometry and riding position. CompuTrainer accuracy increases another notch.
 
2. 2007 marked the introduction of a landmark improvement in the CompuTrainer interactive training experience:
Interactive REAL Course Videos. Videos of famous triathlon and bike courses are filmed in High Definition and are then combined with our interactive, GPS mapped software to make you feel like you’re on the real course. Filming of complete bike courses on race day provides superior realism and race simulation. Ironman® and Ironman® 70.3 bike courses are exclusively available from RacerMate. View HERE for latest available courses along with sample videos.
FEATURES:
 
You'll be amazed at the realism of CompuTrainer's 3D interactive graphics. Curves, split screens, and panoramic helicopter views combine with advanced computer algorithms to create the true "feel of the road". Select from multiple scenery packs: Rolling Green Hills, Painted Desert, Grand Tetons, Atlanta, Okanogan Falls or Seattle (home town of CompuTrainer). Real time representation of essential data such as power output, heartrate, current speed, real-time & average values are given. CompuTrainer 3D Software is the result of over 15 years of continuous development by more than a dozen top level software designers, engineers and computer graphics programmers.

SpinScan™ Pedal Stroke Analyzer is an exclusive CompuTrainer feature that helps you increase power and efficiency. The multicolor torque graph represents one full 360 revolution divided into 15 segments. The left /right leg percentage power splits give you the feedback needed to pedal in "circles". It will identify "flat" or "dead" spots in the pedal stoke where optimal power is not transferred to the drive train. A dynamic bike fit utilizing SpinScan is an excellent way to take the subjectivity and guesswork out of the bike fit process. And the ATA (Average Torque Angle) displayed on the Polar Graph helps you to adjust your position for optimum power.

By pre-training on a simulated course you gain a big advantage in the actual race. A library of hundreds of pre-loaded courses is included in the software - from the Central Park bike course in New York City to the Hawaiian Ironman World Championships course in Kailua-Kona. Look to this website to download the latest new courses along with many free courses posted by CompuTrainer users.

Professional Performance
CompuTrainer is more than a premier bike trainer. It's also a precision bicycle ergometer measuring wattage, heartrate, and cadence, which matches ergometers like the Lode and SRM costing much more. USA Triathlon and USA Cycling rely on CompuTrainer to test and train their national team athletes. For the individual it's like having a personal exercise physiology lab.

More Powerful than other electronic bike trainers (except the Velotron, also by RacerMate), CompuTrainer has a peak power rating in excess of 1500 Watts to simulate road grades up to 15%.
All versions of CompuTrainer are built upon the same basic system of hardware and
electronics. The basic hardware and electronics can also operate as a stand alone electronic
bicycle ergometer when added to a two or more rider application such as MultiRider 3D
Software. All CompuTrainers come with interactive 3D software with the choice of optional
proprietary software. The CompuTrainer system that you own today will be with you tomorrow.
It will continue to be easy to upgrade or add any new cutting edge software RacerMate develops
in the future. learn more>>
