One of the unique features of the Wattbike is the ability to monitor your pedalling technique as you ride. This is shown as a graph on the Wattbike Performance Computer - the Wattbike Force Curve or Polar graph. Good pedalling technique is fundamental to effective training and regular progress checks are very helpful to track the development of your technique.
