New Training Cycles from Matrix Combine Precision Engineering and Color to Energize Cycling Classes
Matrix Fitness is rejuvenating indoor cycling classes everywhere with a collection of Training Cycles that feature advanced engineering, enhanced comfort, streamlined service, original programming and the option to completely redefine the cycling experience with a new kind of Target Training Display. The new series — which includes the CXC Training Cycle, CXM Training Cycle and CXP Target Training Cycle — appeals to both cycling enthusiasts and club members looking for a unique group exercise experience, helping club owners fill more cycling classes on their facility calendar.
“It’s important that our customers have options that suit their needs,” said Becky Jalbert, global product manager, personal and group training for Matrix. “They can select the CXC for the feel of a real outdoor ride, step up to the CXM for enhanced metric tracking or choose the CXP for a colorful Target Training Display that injects camaraderie and competition into every cycling session.”
Series highlights advanced engineering including a narrow Q-factor to optimize the position of the hips, knees and feet, plus a rear flywheel featuring a low-maintenance, well-protected design and magnetic resistance for smooth, consistent adjustments.
Intuitive adjustments including four-way fine-tuning with quick-touch operation, easy seat tilt and a contoured lever near the handlebars that provides tactile feedback for quick resistance changes.
Refined touchpoints including a seat sculpted to relieve pressure, comfortable multi-position handlebars with an integrated water bottle holder and forged steel cranks and pedals with redesigned toe cages and quick-adjust straps (pedal upgrade for CXP only).
Service conveniences including quick-release service panels, easily removable pedal cranks and clearly identifiable internal components that make maintaining the cycles easy, even in heavy-use facilities and group exercise areas crowded with tight rows.
Original programming for the CXM and CXP including a live workshop, an educational manual, turnkey lesson plans, an optional training app and more, giving trainers everything they need to lead a cycling class that engages a wider range of members by focusing on meaningful metrics including watts, heart rate, RPMs, distance and calories.
What sets the premium CXP Target Training Cycle apart from the rest of the series is a distinctive Target Training Display that uses engaging graphics and vibrant colors to motivate riders, gauge effort and keep everyone on track for their goals. Integrated testing establishes personalized targets, so instructors can seat elite cyclists next to deconditioned users and first-time participants, and be sure everyone will get a workout that challenges them to make measurable progress. Three vibrant colors express each rider’s level of effort relative to their personalized metric target, and trainers can intuitively guide members through different phases of their ride, from warm-up to a steady pace to threshold intervals and back to cool-down.
