Wheeling Dandies competitive cyclist Jeff Kirchner gives the new VRide software with ANT+ FE-C a thumbs up for immersive indoor training with real life HD video, using TACX Vortex for group rides on some of the world’s best velo courses.
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) September 27, 2015
VeloReality President Gary Bauer today announced the availability of the company’s new VRide software for any ANT+ FE-C compatible resistance trainers, including industry leading ‘smart’ models like the TACX Vortex, NEO and Bushido models.
Currently available for VeloReality’s top-of-the-line LYNX VR Trainer, for the Wahoo KICKR and RacerMate Computrainer, VRide software has already gained popularity with a dedicated global user group. It is lauded by competitive riders for its superior ability to deliver an immersive, highly realistic indoor riding experience for indoor cycling enthusiasts.
VRide software uses the recently released ANT+ Fitness Equipment – Controls (FE-C) Device Profile, creating a standardized platform for cross-brand interoperability, this profile enables bi-directional resistance control for ANT+ bike trainers, indoor cycling (IC) bikes and HD video displays.
With real-time changes in resistance matched to stunning HD video of some of the world’s best and most famous rides, VRide software offers multi-user capability for any ANT+ FE-C trainer.
“With our adoption of ANT + FE-C for VRide Multi, anyone with our software and an indoor resistance trainer that supports FE-C can join their buddies in stunning HD,” says Bauer. “Along with our LYNX trainer, TACX is leading the pack, but the field is now open to anyone.”
The VRide software is available free of charge and can be downloaded and installed in less than a minute from veloreality.com. Once installed VRide can be configured to run with either demo videos, or with any HD video from VeloReality’s library of over 80+ videos of the most popular European cycling routes.
With its new multi-rider, multi-brand VRide software release, VeloReality becomes an active member of the ANT+ Alliance — an open special interest group of companies who have adopted ANT+ interoperability. As part of the Alliance, VeloReality joins other fitness industry leaders who market globally recognized brand name products for sport, training and wellness management.
