Spivi® turns traditional indoor cycling sessions into a fun and thrilling experience. Group activity is monitored in real-time by Spivi’s core engine which simulates an outdoor riding experience projected on screen. Riders can see their personal avatars on screen, track their training goals, and gain better results over time. Spivi® saves performance data on a personal and group basis for each session. Riders can access their performance records anytime, anywhere on their phone.


Without getting too technical, you only get what you give. Speedflex machines respond to you. Suitable for anyone of any age or fitness level, Speedflex enables everyone to exercise at high intensities, but at levels
set by each individual. This coupled with the added benefit of little (or no) post training muscle soreness; Speedflex is efficient, enjoyable and delivers a cardiovascular and resistance workout simultaneously.
