REALPOWER is the only cycling simulator in the world that can correctly simulate any slope gradient up to 20%. The innovative technology of the resistance unit is capable of simulating any hill climb, even the most breathtaking ones of the Giro and the Tour.
Realpower was created thanks to the use of a special technology: magnetic powder. This system is based on the use of special powders that change their viscosity according to the current passing through them.
The RealPower CT is a highly developed electronic training roller which, thanks to its interaction with the PC, can be used for various types of training on a bicycle:
Complete and customisable training: it is now possible to create truly complete training programmes. Every cyclist can create training programmes according to 6 different types:
The technical characteristics of this roller make it a unique tool for indoor training:
All these features make the RealPower a professional tool for indoor cycle training: a substitute for rides on rainy days, in the snow or wind, or in the evening when it is dark; it prepare the cyclist for the most important events even during the season, and appraises the rider’s progress.
The resistance unit is the technological heart of this roller. In order to obtain such high powers the RealPower utilises a technology that is unique in the world of training rollers: a magnetic dust brake. This special technology (industrial derived) offers enormous powers and high reliability. The braking unit contains special magnetic dusts that change viscosity according to the magnetic field crossing them. The magnetic field is regulated by an electronic board that continuously communicates with the PC. In this way the computer can constantly regulate the resistance of the roller in order to give pedalling an unprecedented realism.
In addition, the resistance unit is equipped with an Elastogel roller of increased diameter (40 mm).
The larger diameter offers the following advantages:
The control console positioned on the handlebar allows the software to be controlled even without getting off the bicycle. This is particularly useful during training and allows the cyclist to activate/deactivate different types of information during training.
