New technology turns possibilities into reality. It empowers existing products to become more effective. Take, for example, a stationary bike which can be turned into a training bike for Tour de France if you can incorporate some new, innovative technology to it. ProForm Tour de France is one such stationary bike which has been declared the official training bike for Tour de France and makes it possible for you to train and aspire for the coveted yellow jersey. You can time yourself on the ProForm and see if you can take a shot at the championship.
The indoor cycle doesn’t look any different from the other stationary bikes that are used for routine exercising. But this bike is definitely different from the others as it uses the new cutting edge technology called the iFit Live Technology. This innovative technology is powered by Google Maps. It can simulate the real course of the Tour de France. The motors in the bike keep adjusting the incline and decline to give you the real road experience of the actual course that is followed for the championship.
If you don’t want to follow the same rout everyday you have the option of visiting the iFit website created by ProForm and create a new route for yourself. The integration with Google Maps will simulate that course on the training bike for you. It can’t really get better than that. It is a boon for professionals who are competing round the year. You can store up to ten different routes on the bike at a time. The only limitation is that the incline and decline cannot exceed 20%. The pre orders for the ProForm bikes are being taken at $1,299. It will include one year of iFit.com membership and make your training fun with its WiFi connectivity, iPod port and built-in speaker.
