A smart trainer transmits power data and has the ability to change the resistance based on the route incline/decline; so, as you go up and down hills in ROUVY, you’ll feel those changes in resistance on your bike and you will need to use your gears.
Power meter + any trainer
A power meter can be the most accurate way to measure your effort; and in ROUVY, it also allows you to ride any trainer in combination.
Turbo trainer + speed sensor
“Turbo“ is our name for a supported classic trainer + speed sensor setup. With this setup, ROUVY calculates your watts (i.e. power) based on the speed of your rear wheel, and allows you to move on the route. Remember that your Turbo Trainer must be on the list of pre-defined trainers, and remember that Turbo Trainers and Power meters don’t allow you to control the resistance. Please make sure that your wheel is secured correctly to the rear roller and has the correct amount of air pressure before every ride. This ensures that your data is as accurate as possible.
The latest generation of smart bikes can be used. These are designed as an all-in-one bike-trainer setup combination, with power measurement, an adjustable position, variable (and automatically-controlled) resistance, and a road-like feel.
You can use either your road bike, gravel bike, or your mountain bike (preferably a hardtail). Please make sure that the bike, whichever you choose, has enough gearing for spinning up climbs of varying gradients. On a road bike, ideally a 34T front and back is ideal.
