6 Apps to Take Your Training to the Next Level


As mentioned in last week’s blog, our Kinetic Smart Control trainers, and inRide sensors are compatible with the best power training apps on the market so you can make the most of your indoor rides. Whether you’re training for a race, fitness, or to hit your PR, we have the tools to make it happen. Take advantage of the real video courses and pretend you’re cruising through Hawaii from your at-home pain cave. Hey, it might not be the real thing, but it’s pretty damn close.



1. Kinetic Fit

Start with a fitness test and move on to a personalized training plan and workouts catered to your ability. A 6-month subscription is included with all Smart Control trainers and a free 1-month trial comes with Smart Trainers and inRide sensors. Good news: it’s compatible with both iOS and Android.


2. Zwift

Think video game meets cycling. Race or train with Zwift riders worldwide on a variety of courses. Plus, you can even join our Kinetic Riders group for rides on Tuesdays at 6:45am EST and Thursdays at 7pm EST. Connect directly with Kinetic Smart Control trainers with the Zwift iOS app, or connect to a Mac/Windows computer over wifi using the Zwift Mobile Link app.


3. TrainerRoad

With hundreds of guided workouts and training plans, you’ll be set for the winter. Connect directly with Kinetic Smart Control trainers with the TrainerRoad app on either iOS, Android, or through Bluetooth Smart-equipped Mac and Windows computers.


4. Rouvy

Rouvy combines both indoor and outdoor training to make the most of your workouts. Between virtual rides both solo and with groups, you’ll be sure to kick your competitive nature into high gear. Rouvy also connects through iOS, Android, and Bluetooth Smart-equipped computers.


5. Kinomap

Thank you, technology! Kinomap gives you access to hundreds of geolocated videos (basically, you’re riding through Google Maps–does it get much cooler?). Connect your trainer, select a video, and pedal your bike around the map from your own living room. Your goal is to meet the power and rhythm of the built-in ghost rider.


6. FulGaz

Last but not least, we have FulGaz, an app for iOS to take your indoor training to the next level. With a combination of first-person video and advanced modeling for real world simulations, you’re as close to riding through France as you can be without physically being there. Connect directly using Smart Control, Smart trainers, and inRide sensors.

If you want to get a leg up on your training competition, this is a sure-fire way to get your cycling legs ready before the season truly begins.
