Wexer & BODY BIKE: An indoor cycling experience like no other

In a first-of-its-kind partnership, Wexer and Body Bike have announced plans to unite their market-leading technologies to launch an exciting new product: the BODY BIKE Smart+ Switch.

Smart+ Switch has been designed as a standalone product that allows operators to harness the power of virtual group cycling – even where a full studio isn’t an option.

The bike features all the market-leading technology you’d expect from BODY BIKE, but with an important added feature: an integrated screen through which users can access a specially curated, pre-loaded collection of Wexer’s best virtual cycling classes.

Whether on the gym floor of a mainstream club, in a corporate facility, hotel gym or hotel room, the new bike delivers the full buzz and engagement of group cycling to those working out independently. The user simply jumps on, selects a class and rides.

For those interested in performance data, Wexer’s tech integration with BODY BIKE means all user metrics – from power to cadence, calories to distance – can be shown on the screen.

This industrial-grade screen has been designed for durability and reliability, while the programming is supported by the same robust Wexer Virtual platform that boasts a 99.9 per cent uptime across all Wexer clients in over 50 countries.

Finally, there’s a unique optional 180° swivel on the screen, which allows for floor-based training in front of the bike where appropriate. Once again drawing from the extensive Wexer class library, these floor-based workouts – focused on strength and stretching – are specially curated to complement a cycling workout; the user is encouraged to select one of these classes on completion of their ride.

In this way, the BODY BIKE Switch allows for a fully independent – yet expert-led and highly motivational – full-body workout, wherever the user may be.

“We’re bringing together the best products on the market – the best bike, the best virtual system and the best cycling classes – to deliver an indoor cycling experience like no other,” says Kim Hessellund, CEO of BODY BIKE parent company the HDD Group. “Whatever the constraints of your club or fitness facility, you can now offer world-class indoor cycling to your customers.”
