Belt Drive System– Conti Syncroforce® and FleXonic Poly V® belts deliver a unique feel of a road bike. Since the belt has cogs (teeth), it feels more like a chain but has the durability and maintenance-free care of a belt.
Self Powered - No Batteries Required– The Johnny G Spirit Bike creates its own power with a generator built into the bike. A unique circuit design stores enough power to retain the workout information for at least 10 minutes and maintains connection to all user devices and leader boards when the user stops pedaling. Unlike many other bikes, absolutely NO batteries are used in this bike.
Touch Electronic Shifting– Touch sensitive electronic shifting instead of industry-standard resistance knob. Allows the ability to repeat workouts using easy-to-remember level readings. In group fitness settings, allows both riders and instructions to easily get on the same page for level intensity.
Cockpit-Style Console– The concept for the console has always been to give the rider the feeling of being in a cockpit looking at a Heads-Up Display.
Handle Bar Design– Multi-position ergonomic handlebar with 2 resistance buttons for "+" or "-". Very comfortable and versatile.
Q Factor– Minimal 168 mm / 6.6 inch Q-Factor for proper ergonomic alignment.
Clamshell Monocoque Frame– Seamless all steel frame with NO welds. Simple geometry creating a riding experience more like a road bike with frame flex and feel. Powder coated and electroplated for attractiveness and durability. Completely sweat resistant frame and electronics. "Curb appeal" unlike any other indoor bike available today.
Display– 23 characters with 6 data metrics at a glance, multi-color heart rate and power zone indicator LEDs
Programs– Heart rate zone, power zone, lap, Functional Threshold Power (FTP) test, quick start
Workout Summary– Time, distance, watt avg, watt peak, speed avg, speed peak, heart rate avg, heart rate peak, RPM avg, RPM peak, lap, % time in heart rate zone, % time in power zone
Function Keys– Forward control pad with resistance and play button to start workout from warm-up, includes additional resistance buttons at handlebar ends
Power Requirements– Generator drive system with power save function to store workout data for 10 minutes after pedalling has stopped
Communication Module– Bluetooth® FTMS channels and ANT+™, compatible with Myzone™, Garmin® and leaderboards
The Johnny G electronic shifting bike incorporates a power meter that is both accurate and reliable with consistently repeatable watt power measurements. The watt readout on the Johnny G cockpit display meets or exceeds the stringent CE standard for power displays on stationary exercise bikes. All Johnny G bikes are CE certified.
The Johnny G bike uses a high resolution RPM speed sensor, closed loop control shifter positioning and a dynamometer generated watt table in the software to ensure accurate watt readings.
Every Johnny G bike is calibrated on a dynamometer during manufacturing so you can be sure that each and every bike in your facility has the same watt reading on the display and the same torque at the pedal.
The Johnny G bike never goes out of calibration so the power reading accuracy will be the same today as it will be a year from today.
What is the difference between a dynamometer calibrated bike versus one that uses a strain gauge for power readings?
A strain gauge measurement for power (aka Power Tap) on a group exercise bike is actually carried over from the bicycle industry. There is no other reasonable way to measure power on an outdoor bicycle other than a strain gauge. The reason for a strain gauge on an indoor stationary bike is because all group bikes use manual control for resistance so there was no accurate way to measure power without a strain gauge…until now.
The Johnny G bike incorporates electronic shifting, the first in the industry. Built into the electronic shifter is a high resolution feedback sensor for closed loop control that ensures the resistance level setting is exactly the same every time on every bike. Because of the high accuracy of the shifter the Johnny G bike can maintain a high level of accuracy on the power meter.
Strain gauges are notorious for inaccuracy and poor reliability. Strain gauges are prone to drift (variation of measurements) over time and changes in temperature and high torque conditions. All indoor group bikes suffer from these problems and require frequent calibration to return the bike to proper measurements. That still does not ensure accuracy as proven by measuring the ICG 7 in lab tests, which was off by 20% out of the box. After calibration it was still off by over 15% at certain levels and speeds.
The Johnny G bike measures power without strain gauges. The Johnny G method for measuring power guarantees the level of accuracy never changes and the bike never needs calibration. This means you can be assured of continuous trouble free operation and accuracy of your new Johnny G bike.
The watt reading on the console comes from a watt look-up table in the software, high resolution RPM sensor to ensure watt reading changes rapidly as pedal speed increases, and precision brake settings. The watt table details the watt measurement at each level and at RPM input from 30 to 150 pedal RPM. Every bike is then calibrated on a dynamometer in the factory to ensure accuracy to CE standards for ergometers. Spirit employs this same method in their medical bike ergometers which meet stringent medical certification standards.
