Intelligent biking is all about sustaining your energy, so that you have more than enough left for the last few miles. The iBike Dash CC tells you how hard is too hard. Riding within your boundaries is critical for safe training, and with the iBike Dash CC’s “HR Pacing Meter,” you can see at a glance whether your heart rate in the right zone. The HR Pacing Meter determines your fitness level with five Heart Rate Color Zones from 50% to 100%.
These zones indicate the degree of difficulty you will experience when cycling in each zone at your fitness level: from blue (very light) to red (very hard). Each of the zones address different goals, from losing weight in the bottom zones to improving fitness in the middle zones, to maximizing performance in the top zones.
