The Wattbike Pro is the bike of choice for riders looking to train and improve their performance with big wattage interval training. The Wattbike took eight years to take shape, alongside the consultation of the former head of British Cycling Peter Keen.
Now it is used by multiple top cycling federations including Australia, the USA, France and the UCI, as well as athletes from other sports including, athletics, rugby, sailing, motorsports and football.
Wattbike redefines Indoor Cycling
The Wattbike Pro and Trainer have redefined indoor cycling. Ultra robust, they stand up to training sessions from the world's most powerful athletes. Incredibly versatile, they are equally at home on the side of a rugby pitch as they are in your home.
Astoundingly accurate, they ensure you make the most of your data, during each and every session.
The Pro and Trainer combine our years of painstaking research, analysis and improvement into one. Redefine the way you ride with Wattbike Pro and Trainer.
Wattbike accurately measures +40 performance parameters
Where the Wattbike separates itself from the competition is in its ability to accurately measure over 40 performance parameters that help to improve technique and power output.
The Wattbike offers 2% accuracy throughout the entire range of the wattage, which on this Pro model is 1-3760 watts. This medium to high resistance is ideal for interval training or for those looking to push big power numbers.
Despite being a static bike, the Wattbike's fit is fully customisable, almost more so than on an actual bike and the real ride feel will quickly have you forgetting that you are not out on the road.
The fan resistance is designed to replicate the feel of real riding resistances in a smooth and consistent fashion. Adding to this real feel is the chain and sprocket system that allows you to freewheel.

Wattbike Key Features
Wattbike Pro combines the ultimate ride experience with digital analysis tools to help all riders improve their performance.
Whatever your workout, you can rely on our data. The Wattbike Pro has been carefully engineered and independently tested to deliver ±2% accuracy across the full power range of 0-3760W.
Visualise how you apply force through each pedal stroke and optimise your technique with our patented analysis tool. Training with Polar View helps improve your pedalling efficiency and power output.
The Wattbike Pro uses an innovative combination of air and magnetic resistance to deliver smooth, incremental increases. With a maximum of 3,760W for the Wattbike Pro, there is enough resistance for even the toughest workouts.
Real Ride Feel Technology
Our unique technology replicates the resistance and sensation of riding on the road, delivering the most authentic ride feel available. That means all of the effort you put in indoors easily translates out onto the road.
We measure over 37 metrics about your riding and display them in the Wattbike Hub. We work with third party apps to deliver power, speed and cadence.
Wi-Fi is required for initial login/signup. After that, you can ride wherever you want. You don't need to have Wi-Fi or mobile data, we'll simply sync your data the next time your app is open and you have Wi-Fi.
Connectivity & App Compatibility
Wattbike Pro and Trainer connect via ANT+, FE-C and BLE. Wattbike Pro and Trainer support apps that are ANT+ and FE-C compatible.
Wattbike Performance Computer
Various tests can be carried out on the bike to determine training zones using the integrated Wattbike Performance Computer. The Wattbike can connect to a heart rate monitor (sold separately) with ANT+ compatibility for an even deeper level of training accuracy. This also allows you to connect the Wattbike to ANT+ enabled Garmin devices.
The Wattbike Performance Computer is able to display a live Polar graph, which is capable of showing in real time the trajectory of your pedalling stroke. This allows you to improve your technique and efficiency by honing in on dead zones in their pedal stroke.
This computer can connect wirelessly to your Android or iOS device via Bluetooth, allowing you to record and save session data before uploading your ride to Wattbike's Powerhub software for further review.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
IS there a guide on how to use the Wattbike Performance Monitor?
The Performance Monitor is the head unit on the Wattbike Pro/Trainer. With the Wattbike Performance Monitor you can test, train and review your data in one place. For a full guide on how to use the monitor, watch our video below:
How To Use The Wattbike Performance Monitor You can download the manual by clicking the following link: Model B Monitor Manual In order to use the Wattbike Hub smartphone app on the Pro/Trainer, you will need a Bluetooth enabled Model B Performance Monitor. We offer monitor upgrades which you can view online here.
How much maintenance does the Wattbike Pro require?
The Wattbike Pro/Trainer is designed to require minimal maintenance and should withstand heavy usage. If you notice any unusual symptoms, such as loud noises or grinding during operation, stop using your Pro/Trainer and contact Wattbike for support. After Every Session To ensure your Pro/Trainer stays in good condition remove all sweat, dust, dirt or other substances by using a clean, soft cloth and a non-abrasive liquid cleaner. We recommend using the Muc-off Care Pack. Do not spray any cleaner directly onto the bike, always into the cloth first. Wipe down the exterior covers and frame, saddle, handlebar and monitor. Make sure that the handlebar stem and saddle stem are not over the MIN markers. Weekly Maintenance Vacuum the floor under and around the Wattbike. Inspect the feet bolts, saddle and handlebar sliders and monitor bracket for looseness. Tighten as necessary. Inspect the saddle and handlebar stem adjustments. Tighten as necessary. Check that the pedals are secure. Tighten as necessary. Ensure that no sweat/ liquid is pooling on the metalwork or covers. Lubricate, using a 3-In-One Multi-Purpose Spray Oil or similar product, the thread of the locking and adjustment levers. Check the battery level on the monitor, from Main Menu, Properties, and then Battery. If the level is below 50% charge using the external charger for a period of 8-12 hours. We recommend that you do this every 1-2 weeks. Monthly Maintenance Check for smooth and quiet operation of all moving parts. Check your monitor firmware version in the Properties section. Compare to the latest monitor firmware version at wattbike.com and update if necessary. Biannual Maintenance Using a 3-In-One Multi-Purpose Spray Oil or similar product lubricate the chain. To do this use place the straw of spray lubricant between the cover and the chain ring close to the chain itself. This step requires you to remove the right hand cover. Spray gently down towards the floor and rotate the crank anti clockwise twice. Please see page 80 of the Owners Manual for further information on preventative maintenance.
Can I change the saddle on the Wattbike Pro?

Can I change the pedals on the Wattbike Pro?
Yes you can. The Wattbike Pro comes with Wellgo E148 pedals as standard, however, it has a standard pedal fitment so you can fit your own pedals. We have an instruction guide here on how to install your pedals.
What is the difference between the Wattbike Pro and the Wattbike Trainer?
The Wattbike Pro and Trainer have the same functionality and ride feel, with the only difference being the resistance. The Wattbike Trainer offers light to medium resistance (0-2000w) and a Wattbike Pro offers medium to high resistance (0-3760W). Which resistance is right for you? If you are a lighter individual (80kg or less), looking to use the Wattbike for endurance training, or for weight management, then the Trainer would be more suitable. If you want to have multiple users of the Wattbike, including children and partners, we would recommend the Wattbike Trainer. If you are an experienced athlete or have a history in sports that involve explosive power such as rugby or sprinting, then we would suggest the Wattbike Pro would be most suited to your needs.
The magnetic resistance control on my Wattbike Pro is slipping, what do I do?
The magnetic resistance works by creating resistance against the flywheel through the use of magnets at the end of the resistance column. Over time, if the magnetic column has been left for a long period under tension, then the column can loosen and therefore slip under the higher magnetic force. If your bike is still under it's warranty we can contact the manufacturer to rectify this for you. If the bike is outside of this period then we can quote for repair accordingly when provided with the required information. If you are experiencing this issue, please contact us with your name, contact details, address at which the bike is present, and the serial number of the bike starting in 220. This serial number can be found by going into the monitors main menu, properties, and then listing the "Sensor ID".
How do I oil the chain on my Wattbike Pro?
We advise oiling the chain on your Wattbike Pro and Trainer every few months depending on the usage of your bike. To oil the chain we would recommend using a spray lubricant such as Muc-Off Dry Lube to coat the inside of the rollers of the chain, please rotate the pedals backward around 3 times to ensure every roller has been lubricated. The picture below shows where the oil should be inserted.
How do I install the pedals on my Wattbike?
To install your pedals, whether these are our Wellgo E148 dual sided pedals or our flat pedals provided with the Wattbike Atom, you will need a 15mm spanner and/or a 6mm Allen (Hex) key for our E148 pedals. Within our example, we are using or Wellgo E148 dual sided pedals which support Shimano SPD (mtb) or Look Keo compatible cleats.
1. Rotate the cranks back to the 9 O'clock position and insert the long end of the 6mm Allen key provided into the end of Pedal (pictured below).
2. Rotate the pedal backwards in a counterclockwise direction to line up the pedal threads. This is a preventative step to minimise the chances of cross threading of the crank.
3. Once the threads have been aligned please rotate the pedal forwards in a clockwise direction to tighten the pedal onto the crank. Should you feel any resistance before all threads of the pedal have disappeared into the crank then please go back to Step 2 before cross threading the crank.
4. Once the pedal has been tightened and all threads are now within the crank you can use the shorter end of the provided Allen key to secure and tighten the pedal onto the crank. If there is no allen key hole within axle of the pedal then please carefully follow Step 2 by rotating the pedal thread backwards to align the threads. Then rotate forward to pick up the threads and continue tightening using a 15mm Allen Key.
N.B Pedals are unlike most other screws, in that the left-hand pedal has an opposite thread. Therefore, all pedals tighten in a forwards manner.
How do I tighten the levers on my Wattbike Pro? They're not tightening..
If you are experiencing issues with the levers on your Wattbike Pro/Trainer you will need to purchase replacements from the manufacturer. The lock lever adjusts the height of the handlebars/saddle and can be purchased here. The adjustment lever adjusts the handlebars/saddle fore/aft and can be purchased here.
