August 11, 2005 – RacerMate Inc., the undisputed leader in bicycle training technology, is placing bets that frequent use of its CompuTrainer products leads to rapid performance gains. The new CompuTrainer Performance Improvement Guarantee states that the original purchaser of a CompuTrainer may return it within 12 months of the purchase date for a full refund of the purchase price if his/her cycling power (watts) and speed have not increased by 5% or more after training on it for a minimum of 3 days/week for 5 consecutive months.
“The very fact that CompuTrainer is able to offer such a guarantee is a testament to the near laboratory reliability and accuracy of the feedback given by a CompuTrainer,” says Chuck Wurster, VP sales and marketing for Racermate. “To my knowledge no other indoor training device has the hardware or software to allow this. We feel confident in the effectiveness of our product and the risk of it backfiring seems small because by the time customers have adhered to the terms of the guarantee, in all likelihood, they will have improved their performance beyond the guarantee margin of 5%.”
Cyclists looking to put icing on the cake of their fitness gains can utilize the unique SpinScan technology to make additional performance gains through increased pedaling efficiency. SpinSpan software creates a graphical representation of force applied throughout each pedal stroke giving the rider real-time feedback allowing them to respond with instant adjustments so they can actually see how the most efficient pedal stroke looks and learn how it feels.
Another RacerMate product helping riders improve their performance is MultiRider software which allows up to eight CompuTrainer users to train and race together at one time. Results can be uploaded to a database where riders can compare their performance with pro and amateur riders all over the world.
