Indoor Cycle with Built-in Sensors

Spivi Home collects data from bike sensors. If your bike has built-in power, speed, or cadence sensors you are ready to workout.

Indoor Cycle with Add-on Sensors

If you have an older bike or a bike with no sensors on it, you can easily retrofit it with a cadence sensor and heart rate monitor.

Have a bike but no sensors? 

You can still ride along to the workouts however, you will not be displayed on the virtual road and you will not receive a workout summary with your stats.
We highly recommend users have a bike with a sensor to have the most impactful ride.

Step 2 - The Connectivity

Let Spivi Home put you on the virtual road

High-end bikes broadcast power (watts) and cadence to Spivi Home. Some will also broadcast heart rate information that is captured directly from the bike's console.

Standard bikes and older bikes may require a cadence sensor in order to broadcast RPM (and virtual speed) to Spivi Home.

Most high-end bikes and sensors connect to Spivi Home wirelessly via ANT+ using a USB ANT+ stick (Mac/Windows) or via the internal Bluetooth (Mac, iPad, and most Android tablets), or using a BLE dongle (Window PC).

Some bikes, such as the Precor Spinner Chrono, the Keiser M3i, and RealRyder ABF8 with power crank, support Bluetooth technology to communicate so it should be easy to pair them on a Mac, iPad or Android tablets. A BLE dongle is required for Spivi Home when used with Windows PC.

If your bike is not equipped with sensors, you can attach a Bluetooth cadence sensor to the crank-arm which is the base of the bike's pedal.
