Kettler ErgoRace / World Tours 1.0

RH Numbers

Designed to train professional racers and built to commercial gym-grade standards, the ErgoRace is for serious pedal-heads only. The on-board computer and screen control 48 programs with four heart-rate settings, user memory and guest options. Fully adjustable triathlon handlebars and saddle ensure a comfortable ride for all, right up to the 'not-so-Tour-de-France' 130kg maximum rider weight. But it's the silent Poly-V drive belt, mains-powered Eddy current braking system and 18kg Flywheel – complete with safety freewheel feature – that afford an unrivalled indoor riding experience. For an extra £150, you can connect to your PC with the Ketter World Tours 1.0 software, which uses GPS data to provide real-world topography to ride all King-of-the-Mountains over.

Ki Fit

RH Numbers

Dubbed the world's most accurate calorie management system, the Ki-Fit combines accelerometer, pedometer, sweat and skin temperature monitors to measure calories, steps, activity levels and even sleep duration and efficiency. Costing around £10 per month, the compulsory subscription to the Online Activity Manager might deter some, but it provides powerful tools to aid your goals, and is no different from the subsidised model of contract mobile phones. And, for those handy with a spreadsheet, the optional display and three-month subscription package is the quickest way to extricate yourself from the subscription service and start tracking progress yourself.
