As you are using more muscles, varibiking enables you to burn 84% more calories than normal biking. * – tested by aerolution®.
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
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.
