MAKING FITNESS
MORE COLORFUL,
POWERFUL &
ORIGINAL
The IC7 Indoor Cycle and its Coach By Color® power program brings optimal performance and
opportunity to group exercise, team coaching, personal training and even individual use. World-class
technology and member-centric coaching will make your program more colorful, more powerful
and definitely more original. That means better experiences and better results for your customers to
keep them coming back.
Colorful
The IC7’s Coach By Color® training console uses one of the world’s most simple, universal and
powerful forms of communication to maximize instruction, motivation and reward during your
members’ workouts. The console’s display lights up in one of five colored zones that matches the
user’s WattRate® (power) reading or heart rate output so they know immediately whether they need
to ratchet up or dial back their effort. Plus, the integrated front LED display on each console tells
instructors when certain students are working too hard or not hard enough.
Powerful
The IC7’s WattRate® (power) meter provides your members with immediate and precise feedback on
the direct effort they’re putting in, to ensure they have absolute control of the results they get
out. Power-based training with WattRate® - the market‘s most accurate power meter - provides the
ultimate way for your members to see results and reach goals faster.
Original
The IC7’s advanced ergonomics, superior biomechanics and precision engineering provide your
members with maximum comfort and performance by being fully and correctly connected to the
bike and their body. It’s when users are connected to their workouts that we witness more positive
psychological and physiological experiences, which promotes faster results and happier members
who aspire to train more at your facility.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND
COACH BY COLOR®
Color
Life is not black and white. We live in color - every minute of every day. Color is powerful. It can spur
action and compel reaction. Color is evocative. It can influence thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Color is universal. Red means “hot“ and blue means “cool“ in just about every culture.
To Coach By Color® is to use one of the world‘s most intuitive and effective forms of communication
to help members receive a greater experience and achieve better fitness results in less time. The
Coach By Color® power program relies on color‘s natural and stimulating properties to accurately
coach a member‘s effort during a workout. Coach by Color® elicits the right psychological and
physiological response at the right time to encourage greater maximal effort and reward recovery
effort. It fosters connections among members and enhances instructor communication. Thus, Coach
By Color® increases social interaction while it maximizes training results. More simply, that means
members find comaraderie more easily, enjoy the process more and reach their goals more quickly.
Those are the kinds of benefits that boost new-member acquisition and retention.
Training Zones
Coach By Color® has five colored training zones: white, blue, green, yellow and red. These zones
can be linked to WattRate® (power) and Functional Threshold WattRate® (FTW), or heart rate and
percentage of Heart Rate Max (HRM). FTW represents the workload above which an individual cannot
sustain prolonged exercise. Similar to HRM, once an individual‘s FTW is known, users are assigned the
five colored zones to accurately coach their effort for the best customized results.

IC7 Indoor Cycle
The IC7 is the most advanced indoor cycle ever designed. Its pioneering design and functionality
are due largely to Indoor Cycling’s innovative two-stage drivetrain. Freed of the large center pulley
characteristic of traditional bike design, the IC7 brings a lower, sleeker profile to the studio or cardio
floor. The improvements, though, are not limited to aesthetics. The two-stage drivetrain also enables
the market’s most accurate (+/-1%) direct WattRate® (power) meter, 100-level precision magnetic
resistance, 1:11 ratio high-speed flywheel, and an unrivalled connection to the ride thanks to the
tactile and responsive hybrid Poly-V and tooth belt technology. The bike’s performance metrics
are delivered to the rider via the patent-pending Coach By Color® training console – a fully
self-powered console that vividly displays the user‘s WattRate or heart rate to them and their coach
in five colored zones. Designing a bike that improves an athlete’s performance while capturing an
artistry to communicate with the fitness user is our greatest achievement. Indeed, the IC7 makes
fitness more colorful, powerful and original.

FIRST OF ITS
KIND TWO-STAGE
DRIVETRAIN
Two-stage drivetrain uses one left and one right-sided
pulley system to drive the flywheel
TWO-STAGE DRIVETRAIN
Technical Requirement
To completely redesign indoor cycling‘s traditional single-stage drivetrain in order to:
1. maximize a club‘s opportunity to help members reach their goals faster by training with power;
2. deliver a robust power meter that‘s precise and repeatable on all bikes; 3. provide users an
authentic, highly-accurate magnetic resistance system that also fully eliminates a facility‘s need for
regular service and maintenance; and 4. advance a rider‘s connection to the bike via greater comfort
and performance that keeps them coming back.
Solution
The two-stage drivetrain uses one left and one right-sided pulley system to optimize pedaling
and power meter performance. The design — the first of its kind — minimizes component size to
create space for sensors and other electronics necessary for the bike‘s power meter and training
console. The design enables a 1:11 gear ratio that turns the aluminum flywheel at very high speeds.
This is essential for an accurate and authentic-feeling magnetic resistance system. The front drive
(right side pulley system) is driven by a tooth belt that deepens the rider‘s connection to the pedals
with tactile feedback.

THE MARKET‘S NEW
LEADING DIRECT
POWER METER
WATTRATE® (POWER) METER
Technical Requirement
To develop a precision Watt (power) meter that makes power-based training the most reliable and
effective tool to measure performance and maintain member results by: 1. measuring power (Power =
Force x Velocity) directly and as close to the pedal as possible (where the force is applied) while ensuring
a placement that offers maximum future opportunity; and 2. providing the market a new gold standard
for accurate, reliable and durable power measurement.
Solution
The launch of WattRate® — the market‘s new leading direct power meter that offers a measuring
tolerance of +/- 1%. Such accuracy is groundbreaking in indoor cycles. The WattRate® (power) meter is
located at the intermediate transmission and uses photocells to directly measure the torsion (twisting
force) of the spindle. The design never requires recalibration and is fully resistant to external factors such
as temperature, humidity and transportation.

300-DEGREE MAGNETIC RESISTANCE
Technical Requirement
To provide members and owners with: 1. greater resistance accuracy; 2. greater resistance range;
3. faster adjustments; 4. a more intuitive control method that‘s ergonomically superior in all riding
positions; 5. consistency between bikes; and 6. a robust, service-free system that reduces operational
down time and cost.
Solution
A contactless
positioning
sensor to
measure the
magnet position
for optimum
resistance
adjustment.
A 300-degree resistance dial features 100 levels with tactile feedback and a push-down emergency
stop. The system uses two high-grade Teflon coated steel cables. One activates resistance and the
other activates the emergency stop. Where it gets more technical — and clever — is at the flywheel
where a contactless positioning sensor measures the magnet position. This first-ever application
in indoor cycling means that every bike in a facility will accurately display resistance levels on the
training console, and the resistance curve will be identical on all bikes.
