How do you choose the right sprinter bike?

Are you an avid cyclist and would you also like to train indoors if the weather does not allow for outdoor sports? Or do you just want a smooth workout on the bike to work on your endurance and muscle strength? If so, sprinter bikes are a great option. Sprinter bikes are suitable for people of all levels, whether you want a fanatic workout or just a recreational ride. What should you pay attention to when you buy a sprinter bike? We are happy to provide you some points of attention.

Let's start with the basics: what exactly is a sprinter bike, and what do you train with it?
 

What is a sprinter bike?

A sprinter bike looks like a road bike, but it is meant to train indoors. You sit in a forward bent position and the pedals often have a system whereby you click the road bike shoes so that you can put more force on the pedals. The handlebars also have the shape of a road bike handlebar, so you can place the arms on the support. A sprinter bike has many adjustable parts ensuring that you are always in the right position, whatever your height is.
 

What do you train with a sprinter bike?

The main focus of using a sprinter bike is to work on your cardio, which is good for your lung capacity, cardiovascular system and overall fitness. In combination with endurance sports, you can also lose weight on a sprinter bike. In addition, you work on strengthening your gluteal, back and leg muscles.
 
What is the difference between an exercise bike and a sprinter bike? Read all about it in this blog. Looking for the right sprinter bike? Then you need to pay attention to the following things.
 

1. Weight of the flywheel
1. Weight of the flywheel
The flywheel is the rotating disc to which the pedals are attached. The heavier the flywheel, the smoother the cycling experience. In addition, a heavier flywheel gives the opportunity to train at more intense levels.
3. Resistance
3. Resistance
You can choose between two types of resistances.
 
  1. 1. Automatic resistance.
    You can find this with sprinter bikes that have a magnetic brake. The bike has preset resistance levels that you can set via the display on the monitor, after which the servo motor starts the setting.
     
  2. 2. Manual resistance.
    You use a rotary knob, which you can compare with a tap that you turn to open and close it. The more you open it, the heavier the resistance. So you do not have a 'number' of resistance levels that you can switch between. The big advantage of this is that you can always adjust the resistance a bit while cycling without feeling a big transition.
5. Heart rate monitor and pairing with heart rate belts

Do you want built-in heart rate sensors like the S40 so that you can immediately see your heart rate on the monitor? Or do you prefer the most accurate heart rate measurement via an analog or Bluetooth heart rate strap? The specifications of the bikes state what the possibilities are.

 

7. Extras

Would you like a basic sprinter bike, or do you prefer something extra? For example, do you want transport wheels to be able to move the bike easily, and should there be a bottle holder on it? How big should the monitor be and what parameters should the monitor display?
