Riding With The Pros & Getting A Taste Of The Giro On The BKOOL Simulator

With the first Grand Tour of the year fast approaching, a number of possible starters and contenders have been busy training on the virtual roads of BKOOL

In recent weeks BKOOL users have ridden with the likes of Chris Froome, Remco Evenepoel, Julian Alaphillipe and Kasper Asgreen – along with legends Alberto Contador and Mikel Landa – on the realistic online training platform.

Riding famous climbs, rolling through quaint Italian villages and towns, and interacting with fellow cyclists and some of the world’s best-known pro’s, the BKOOL community has boomed in recent times with the virtual cycling simulator adding new features, functions and metrics.

BKOOL is considered the most technically advanced online cycling simulator with the platform recently adding several new features.

BKOOL’s Marketing Director, Ángel Luis Fernández said “One of the most attractive aspects of indoor smart training is the ability to get in touch with cycling stars without leaving home.

“The Pandemic was a real boom in this sense, and since then it is very common to find professional cyclists sharing training sessions with their fans every week,” he said.

Over the past year, the platform has aimed to reinforce its social component and the personalisation of the experience, as well as the variety and quality of the uncountable cycling training possibilities.

The new version of the app includes an optimised, more intuitive dashboard, designed to help the thousands of cyclists who train daily in the simulator to be able to do so together, making actual virtual pelotons, organised to meet up as friends or compete amongst themselves.

Riders can get a feel of some of the world’s top climbs and most famous cycling destinations on the BKOOL platform.

BKOOL is the official virtual cycling platform of the Giro d’Italia. In order to create the virtual version of the Corsa Rosa, the company, recently awarded the Pyme Innovadora 2023 badge, has developed a new more realistic and immersive simulation technology, combining high-definition video with avatars and other 3D elements.

Added to the actual stages of the Giro d’Italia, BKOOL has extended this type of technology to new routes such as the Strade Bianche and various cycling routes in Andorra.

To ride on all these virtual routes, the platform has included new 3D bikes inspired by actual models from the best brands on the market, such as Specialized or Aurum.

The next new feature which is about to be launched is LIVE Coach by Wattslab.
