In 2000 Watt Bikes founders met with Peter Keen, Performance Director at British Cycling with the vision of creating the ultimate indoor bike. Versatile enough to test elite athletes and beginners alike. Powerful enough to deliver the most insightful data to coaches and amateur athletes.
Eight years and a rigorous testing process later, the Wattbike was endorsed by British Cycling and launched to cycling fans at the Track Cycling World Championships in 2008. In the following years, British Cycling used the Wattbike for talent identification and development of countless elite athletes.
