MORE FUN AND VARIETY

Who just wants to pedal all the time? Varibiking offers you several sports in one, and the variety makes it fun and motivates you.

During the ride you can switch between these drive options.:

  1. Cycling (alike common bicycles)

  2. Alternate with arms (alike paddling)

  3. Synchron with arms (alike rowing)

  4. Alternate with arms + cycling

  5. Synchron with arms + cycling

  6. One arm

  7. One arm + cycling


No other trike in the world offers that much variety!




FITTER

BURNS 84% MORE CALORIES

As you are using more muscles, varibiking enables you to burn 84% more calories than normal biking.

* – tested by aerolution®.



EVENLY WARMED BODY

When varibiking, your whole body is in motion. Your body is warmed evenly due to proper circulation. This protects you against cooling and tension in under-cooled muscle groups


ENHANCED PERFORMANCE LEVELS AND FITNESS

When varibiking you can work out (at the same lactate level) with a higher heart rate. Sports

medicines say: Compared to cycling, for varibiking the recommended max. heart rate is 10

beats/min higher. By the way, the recommended max. heart rate for varibiking is comparable with

the max. heart rate of classic cross-country skiing.

With the possibility to train at a higher heart rate with the Varibike, you can better utilize your

power reserves. Thus, you improve both your cardiac output, as well as your maximum oxygen

consumption.*

Competitive athletes that can not seem to get beyond a certain "performance plateau", by

varibiking they can improve their performance again and raise it to a higher level.

Recreational athletes train more efficiently with the Varibike and can achieve their ambitious

training goals in less time.

* - proven in a scientific study from University of Würzburg/Germany. Study >


FULL BODY WORKOUT

Varibiking exercises your whole body. Besides your legs you also exercise your arms, chest, shoulders and torso. The impact on the fitness and the physique is correspondent high. You move from A to B and you practically have your own gym with you. Simple and effective, especially as it gets.

FASTER

HIGHER POWER OUTPUT

The Varibike Trike is faster and climbs more efficiently than conventional trikes.

Varibiking is the most effective means of locomotion by muscle power. A scientific US study showed that (at the same heart rate) the maximum power output could be increased by over 30% using combined arm-and-leg cranking compared with normal cycling. Furthermore, the efficiency of lower-power steady-state power production was found to be higher for arm-and-leg cranking.*

* - proven in a study of the New Mexico State University/USA Study >


MORE STAMINA

When varibiking, you can switch between your arms and legs, and even different drive styles. This means individual muscle groups can rest and recover while you're actually still riding - which is why you will have more stamina than you do when riding a normal trike.
