As the cycling season is starting to come to a close across numerous parts of the world, many cyclists are beginning to turn their focus toward indoor riding/training.
As a result, Kinomap has added new features to its popular indoor training platform in order to keep cyclists engaged and thwart-off the doldrums of indoor winter riding.
According to Kinomap, its platform incorporates a host of new features, to include integrating new protocols to work more closely with indoor trainers and popular training apps like Strava.
For instance, following last year’s collaboration with Strava via Veloviewer, Kinomap has created a comprehensive database that directly interfaces Strava segments with its own catalogue of videos.
The result is what Kinomap calls, “a highly-qualified set of video chunks corresponding exactly to the famous Strava segments.”
For exmaple, the main benefits for users are:
In addition, users can now take advantage of Kinomap’s 20 preloaded workout programs while arming up, and from there transition into the interval portion of their training segment, based on 2 modes: target power (aka « Erg mode ») and resistance level.
In the end, everything gets synced on Kinomap’s own site, along with Strava, RunKeeper, Training Peaks and others.
Feature #3: New compatible home-trainers
The main addition this year is the Fitness Machine Bluetooth Smart protocol, that now integrates with a greater range of indoor trainers and their respective upgrades for this year.
In addition, a new feature on Kinomap’s website allows users to check the compatibility of any indoor bike trainer.
This new upgrade provides the following capabilities:
For those unfamiliar with Kinomap, they have the distinction for being the world’s first video-sharing platform to offer synchronized video/map playback, via the development of specialized apps that allow users to view and train on a pre-recorded, geolocated outdoor route, view progress on an accompanying map, measure their own performance and compare their performance with other cyclists.
