The ROUVY App has two options to select before you start your ride. You can choose to ride in the 'TIME TRIAL' mode or in the 'JUST RIDE' mode.

On the ROUVY App, there are routes with PANORAMIC VIEWS. A PANORAMIC VIEW is wide and unobstructed so as to take in an extensive area in all directions. You can find the route with a PANORAMIC VIEW in the ROUTE CATALOGUE under the heading EXPLORE THE WORLD.
The REALITY LEVEL is a tool, which helps you to set up the level of true load, but only in JUST RIDE mode. The default is 100%, which is the real load. If you want a lower load, you can set it to less than 100%. Of course, if you want a higher load, you can set it to more than 100%. With 150% of reality level, you will get one and half the higher load, and of course, with 50%, you will get twice the lower.
When you finish your route in Just Ride mode, you can continue on another recommended RideNext route automatically. More information in this article.
ROAD AND TIME TRIAL BIKES
A ROAD BIKE is slower on flat routes and easier to ride uphill. The TIME TRIAL (TT) bike is fast on the flat routes and slower on the hills. Also, the TT bike is heavier. TT records are marked as TT.
SPLITS are predefined points on a route that give you information about your time compared to other riders on that route. Each route has splits positioned differently and if you feel splits are not necessary for you, you can turn them off in the SETTINGS of the App.
Training Stress Score (TSS) is a way of measuring how much stress is put on the body from a ride. TSS is calculated using Normalized Power (NP), Intensity Factor (IF) and ride duration. TSS allow us to structure training plans and plan forward; with an estimated number of TSS we can see future Chronic Training Load (CTL), Actual Training Load (ATL) and Training Stress Balance (TSB).
