On Saturday, November 16th, at Wheels Of Bloor, Toronto's premiere competitive bike shop, the store's bike racing team put the new Lynx VR Trainer through its paces. With synchronized video, an HD video library of the world's most famous and challenging pro cycling courses, real-feel drive train and super duty construction, the LYNX won kudos from customers as well as the entire Wheels of Bloor crew.

This is ultra-real, real-life stuff. It's video cycling simulation at its absolute best.

Kostya Poukhov, VeloReality Corporation Founder and inventor of the LYNX VR Trainer, and Radek Lukosek, Manager of the high-end bike shop Wheels of Bloor hosted an exclusive event for the indoor trainer at Toronto's go-to store for Cervelo and other exclusive cycling brands last Saturday.

With the world's most advanced indoor trainer now available in Canada and internationally and with the VRide Simulation Software and Real Live Video Library now available for Wahoo KICKR and RacerMate Computrainer, and other resistance trainers, both offerings from VeloReality Corporation were taken to task by some of Toronto's most competitive riders.

The test riders were able to mount their own bikes into the LYNX VR Trainer and then choose the course they preferred. They were then able to ride their selected course -- feeling every tiny rise and fall in the road, every subtle change in grade, while watching their progress in crisp, real-time HD on a 72 inch display.

“Anywhere riders have to deal with snow and ice, indoor systems make a ton of sense but they're really very boring,” explained VeloReality VP Marketing, Gary Bauer. “Now the full HD and high quality sensory simulation of our LYNX VR Trainer and VRide Software make indoor riding rock for the dedicated competitive rider.”

“This is ultra-real, real-life stuff. It's video cycling simulation at its absolute best,” said Wheels Of Bloor customer and competitive rider Johny Demetriadis. “I dread the boredom, the repetitive and drab aspect of the indoor riding season, but with this LYNX VR Trainer, it really is completely different. It's so real it's amazing. I want one.”

Like many of the test riders, Dimitriadis was interested in how many different courses were available for the gift-giving season, and how much would they cost, as well as the structured workouts.

The LYNX VR Trainer is now available at Wheels Of Bloor and the LYNXRide Software and Course Videos are available on-line at
