David Lloyd Leisure has announced Wattbike as its performance bike of choice after a recent tender. The contract win is for five years, and builds on an already successful partnership between the two companies which has lasted for over seven years.
Lucy Day, Gym & Studio Design Manager at David Lloyd Leisure comments: “As early adopters of Wattbike, we have been utilising their bikes across our portfolio for many years, experimenting to find the best fit in each facility for our members.”
In June 2015, we opened our first Wattbike Zone at our Southampton club which became hugely successful. We have chosen to continue with Wattbike as our performance bike of choice as their product quality, metric measuring accuracy and connected technology is second to none. We have even placed an order for 50 of their new Wattbike Icon bikes before product is complete, knowing the high standard that they will offer.”
We have a long-standing partnership with Wattbike and trust in their knowledge and expertise to creating pioneering products that continue to transform the indoor cycling experience for our members. We run live workshops in these Wattbike Zones that create a great atmosphere on the gym floor, and this works to increase the interest from other members observing.”
The tender win includes an order for 54 of the new Wattbike Icons; an evolution of the gold-standard Wattbike Pro/Trainer, the pioneer of performance indoor cycling. Created to elevate the user experience with the all new Performance Touchscreen, the high-definition display delivers the most advanced performance feedback for a fully connected user experience.
Richard Baker, Wattbike CEO, comments: “It is a real privilege to continue working with David Lloyd Leisure. They have always proved themselves industry leaders and have embraced the innovations we have made to our products and offering with interest, allowing us to bring a redefined indoor cycling experience to their members.
The two new commercial products that we have launched to the commercial market this year; the Wattbike Icon and Wattbike AtomX, provide the complete indoor cycling solution. We now have indoor bikes that cover both home and commercial fitness sectors, and user groups from general health and fitness to elite sport. With this we offer our customers a virtuous cycle from their home, health club, hotel or work, providing a product offering suited to a particular function and area of the gym floor; a portfolio of bikes suited for every Wattbiker.”
The new Wattbike Icons will be installed across 17 David Lloyd Leisure sites in November, with another 14 quoted across three more sites by the end of 2019. To find out more about how Wattbike could transform your indoor cycling experience visit www.wattbike.com
