As every cycling enthusiast knows, there are many categories of bicycles in the world today, which differ according to the use the cyclist has to make of them and the route he or she will have to face.
Whether they are steep and difficult climbs, dirt trails or long flat routes, the right bike with the right specifications will always be able to make a difference.
But what is it that most determines the type of bike? The answer to this question lies in the number and the size of its gears.
Different gears mean totally different bikes.
And this is where the extraordinary innovation brought by Technogym Ride comes in.
In fact, the product can be configured in four different modes, respectively:
Each of these will be characterized by a different setting, able to reproduce the same identical sensations of the type of bike chosen, with different values of chainrings and cogs.
The famous Mountain Bikes, for example, fall into the category of bikes best suited to deal with steep slopes, as they have a very small monochrome in front, while behind they have a very large gearbox, essential to reduce fatigue while pedaling.
Gravel Bikes, on the other hand, represent an excellent middle ground between Mountain Bikes and Road Bikes. As with MTBs, Gravel bikes also feature a monochrome front wheel, which will however be characterized by larger dimensions.
Road bikes and Crono bikes both use a similar system, with the difference that the Crono is the category of bike most used for flat racing, so it will have larger crowns than the road bike.
To choose the mode of your Technogym Ride, follow these steps:
Inside the Gear Setup panel, you will find 4 different buttons, each representing a different type of bike. Under each configuration, you will have 2 functions to go and modify the respective chainrings and cassette range, in order to give you the maximum freedom of customization.
Keep in mind that by default, Technogym Ride will be set as a Road Bike, with values of 48/33 for chainrings and 10-28T for cogs. You can still change these to suit your preferences.
