Life Fitness launches IC8 trainer

The IC8 trainer was developed with Life Fitness' sister company Indoor Cycling Group
Commercial supplier Life Fitness has launched the IC8, a new indoor power trainer for cyclists.

Developed in collaboration with Life Fitness’ sister company Indoor Cycling Group (ICG) and Peaks Coaching Group founder Hunter Allen, the IC8 is ergonomically designed to deliver the drive and feel of both a road and triathlon bike.

It claims to deliver superior tracking and fitness results, and features the WattRate Direct Power Meter, with patented photocell technology designed to measure power with less than one per cent of error.

Other features include the WattRate TFT Computer, with more than 40 performance metrics, a PRO handlebar designed to enhance performance and enable cyclists to ride as they would outside, and magnetic resistance that delivers up to 3800 watts and gives users instant control of the resistance levels.

The IC8 is also Bluetooth and ANT+ enabled which allows users to access workouts, create training programmes and analyse workout data via the ICG app.

Bernd Perschel, vice president of ICG, says: “We worked closely with athletes to create an authentic indoor experience. Inspired by the movement of road cycling, triathlon and athletic performance training, the IC8 has greater power accuracy and wattage than any trainer available in the market today. It is the new standard in power training.”
