The Kinetic inRide is our next-generation watt meter. The system uses the new Bluetooth Smart™ communication protocol found in the iPhone 4S and 5 and the iPad 3 and iPod Touch 5th generation to wirelessly pair a heart rate monitor and power sensor pod with the new Kinetic inRide iPhone App* to measure wattage with any Kinetic fluid trainer.
HOW IT WORKS
Our incredibly accurate fluid trainer power curve allows precise wattage readings at exact speeds as measured indoors on a Kinetic fluid trainer. Firmware in the inRide Sensor Pod measures speed and cadence at the tire and translates that to wattage with a simple equation. That data and the heart rate data is collected and displayed on the paired iPhone. Postworkout file sharing allows you to upload training data to your favorite web site or email files to a remote coach.
All current Kinetic fluid trainers including: the Road Machine, Rock And Roll and Pro Trainer are compatible with Kinetic inRide allowing the rider to capitalize on the benefits of a wattage-based training program.
*AVAILABLE FOR iPHONE 4S, 5, iPAD 3 iPad Mini and the New iPod Touch 5th generation (NOT AN iPAD-SPECIFIC APP)

UPDATE: NEW IOS APP SENT TO APP STORE—WILL BE LIVE AND AVAILABLE WEEK OF 8-25:
The time has finally come to send the NEW inRIDE APP to the app store. We're uploading it today, expect it to be live by early next week. Here are a few important notes for all inRide owners:
1. We highly recommend deleting the old inRide app from your device before installing the new one.
2. If you love the old app and it's working for you, be sure to disable auto app updates/downloads on your device if you don't want it automatically updated and overwritten next week by the NEW AND IMPROVED app.
3. If you want to keep your workout history, upload files to a TrainingPeaks peaks or Strava account or email the files to yourself. You won't be able to import them into the new app, but they will be saved.
