San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) October 24, 2008
Now that fall temperatures are dropping, KGS Bikes, a custom bicycle fitting studio and boutique, is again making cycling an integral part of any lifestyle. The Ultimate Stationary Bike combines the convenience of a traditional stationary bike, the stimulation of virtual reality, and the customization of a KGS bike so that cyclists can continue to train without the constraints of inclement weather and busy schedules.
The Ultimate Stationary Bike is your custom-fitted KGS bicycle that is attached to a Tacx Fortius Multiplayer Virtual Reality trainer, which is attached to a computer and monitor, or a home theatre flat screen monitor.
Virtual Reality Experience
The features of the Tacx Fortius Multiplayer Virtual Reality trainer are very sophisticated and flexible, allowing for both long rides and "all-business" power training sessions. As an added benefit, the Ultimate Stationary Bike is an optimal transition tool for relearning how to shift gears properly, how to clip in to and out of the pedals and encountering other riders on a virtual basis. Your brain sees the other riders as real and you develop great technical skills while you train indoors, day or night, rain or shine.
Virtual Reality features:
- Competition with as many as five cyclists
- Road racing, mountain bike trails or velodrome courses
- Control of steering, drafting, weather and collisions
- Footage of top race courses around the world
- Increased resistance going uphill
- An engaged motor on the downhill
- Catalyst Ergometer mode to choose power, slope and heart rate
KGS vs. Other Bicycles
A KGS bike is the result of a state of the art fitting process and the expert choice of a custom designed frame built up with exacting standards. This means that the bicycle has been adapted to you, not the other way around. This makes a huge difference on the road and particularly on a trainer which is not as comfortable as riding on the road. The result is a world-class, one-of-a-kind bicycle that allows you to excel, whether on the real road or the virtual road. By combining the best of custom bicycles, a virtual reality trainer and expertise in designing a program for you, the Ultimate Stationary Bike becomes an investment in an active lifestyle as opposed to a depreciating asset.
