The Concept2 BikeErg is a high-quality indoor exercise bike appropriate for use as home exercise equipment

 

The Concept2 BikeErg is the latest addition to our family of sport-based ergometers. The BikeErg has the same flywheel and Performance Monitor as our Concept2 Indoor Rowers and SkiErgs, bringing to cycling the strengths and features we've previously brought to rowing and cross-country skiing.

 

The flywheel uses air resistance to create a smooth, quiet ride that responds to your efforts. The damper is your "gearing", allowing you to adjust the feel of your ride. Unlike most stationary bikes, the BikeErg has a clutch, so just like a real bike, when you stop pedaling, the flywheel keeps on spinning.

 

The sophisticated Performance Monitor gives you instantaneous workout feedback, with a wide variety of displays and workouts to choose from. The Performance Monitor is calibrated so you'll be able to directly compare your times and distances with other people, as well as track your progress.

 

The BikeErg comes from a company with over 40 years experience of making innovative, high quality products. Whatever sort of indoor cycling workout you're after, whether you're looking to get fit or gain an edge for your next race, the Concept2 BikeErg is the perfect machine for you.

 

Performance Monitor

Every BikeErg includes our most advanced Performance Monitor, the PM5. The powerful PM5 provides repeatable, comparable data for every ride. The PM5 offers automatic “Just Ride” mode, or allows you to set up a variety of workouts. The monitor gives you a wide range of data, including pace, watts, cadence (rpm) and Calories and automatically stores this information. The PM5 uses power from 2 D-cell batteries whenever it is not being powered by the flywheel.

 

Connect to Zwift with your PM5

Get Connected

The PM5 monitor on the BikeErg has both Bluetooth and ANT+ wireless connectivity, allowing it to connect to many heart rate belts, fitness devices and apps. The free Concept2 ErgData app helps you track your workouts and can sync with the Concept2

How does the resistance of a BikeErg differ from a "spinning bike"?

A "spinning bike" typically has a heavy flywheel with an adjustable (friction) brake. Once you adjust the brake, the resistance will be the same at any pedal cadence. This means you can set a low resistance and pedal at a high cadence or set a high resistance and feel that high pedal force even at low cadence.

 

The BikeErg has a flywheel with fan blades, which cause increasing air resistance as the wheel spins faster and as the damper allows more air to circulate .The resistance you feel on the BikeErg is a function of your cadence. Simply increasing your cadence will also increase the resistance, similar to a road bike. Adjusting airflow to the fan will change the resistance you feel at a given cadence. Airflow is controlled by a simple damper lever on the fan enclosure. The result is much like changing the gearing.

 

 

What is the difference between a direct drive connection (like a spinning bike) and a clutched flywheel as on the BikeErg?

On the BikeErg you can stop pedaling and the flywheel will continue spinning due to the clutched system, just as when you are coasting on a road bike. The fixed connection of a "spinning bike" means the pedals will be moving as long as the flywheel is spinning. To end your ride, you either have to use the brake, or slow your pedal rate to slow the flywheel down before you can stop safely.

 

Is the Performance Monitor the same on the indoor rowers, SkiErg and BikeErg?

The PM5 on the BikeErg has the same functions and menu structure as on our indoor rowers and SkiErg. Like the indoor rowers and SkiErg, data from the Performance Monitor is repeatable, reliable, and can be compared to results from other BikeErgs around the world. Note, however, that a PM5 from a BikeErg would require reprograming to be used on a rower, and vice versa.

 

Does the PM5 on the BikeErg show current speed (mph or km/hr)?

Simulated speed is displayed as your time to travel 1000 meters. This time is comparable to the familiar pace number on the PM5 for the indoor rower and SkiErg. This means that the power (watts) required to achieve a pace of 2:00/1000m on the BikeErg is the same amount of power required to go at a pace of 2:00/500m on a rower or SkiErg. The difference of simulated meters traveled is reflective of the difference in real world speeds of the activities. Comparable effort is easily monitored between the family of machines.

 

Readout in miles per hour (mph) and kilometers per hour (km/hr) are available via the ErgData app, which is free to download and connects wirelessly. (Available for both iOS and Android.)

 

How does the damper on the BikeErg work?

On the BikeErg, the damper is your “gearing”. Use a damper setting that helps you achieve your power and cadence goals. Higher power will be required to achieve a target cadence with the damper open (in the higher numbers). Decrease the power required by closing the damper (lower damper numbers).
