BKool today announce that Ribble Pro Cycling will be using the Bkool Simulator alongside Bkool Smart Trainers for all the team’s training needs in 2019.
The perfect blend of the UK’s No.1 ranked British Cycling team and market leading cycling software and hardware solutions provider Bkool will see the Ribble team use the Bkool Simulator and Smart Trainers for winter training and during a busy national and international 2019 race season to help them stay ahead of the chasing pack.
A pro race team needs to train at a pro level. The silent running Smart Pro 2 can reach up to 1,200 W and simulate slopes of up to 20%. Bkool are the only trainers that simulate inertia, adjusting smartly on slopes. Combining a Smart Trainer with the Bkool Simulator allows triathletes and indoor riders to connect in real time with other athletes.
Bkool opened the box in 2010, creating the new generation simulator. Since then, indoor sports has been changed forever. With many other competitors entering the market, the combination of the Bkool simulator and smart trainers is the only way Ribble Pro Cycling can recreate thousands of stages around the world from legendary climbs to classic stages from competitive cycling.
Commenting on the partnership, Luke Gold, Marketing at Bkool says:
“We’re extremely excited to work with Ribble Pro Cycling. With the team competing at UCI Continental level and aiming for major UK races including the Tour of Yorkshire and Tour of Britain, Ribble are fast becoming the most exciting race teams in UK cycling. We hope that this partnership will add an extra dimension to the Bkool simulator, allowing cyclists and Ribble fans to practice their favourite races all year long.”
Tom Timothy, Team Principle at Ribble Pro Cycling, commented on the partnership:
“The support of BKOOL is a great step for us going into 2019. With the progression to UCI status we aim to compete in a much broader race program with a varied mix of racing. Having the access to the Smart range of trainers will allow us to continue to professionalise our approach and ensure our riders are able to warm up and down effectively at any given opportunity.
While training hard through a British winter access to the trainers and BKOOL’s simulator will also provide a different option to complete those long demanding workouts when the weather is against us.”
