PRAEP® Balance Trainer ProPilot®
Core training inspired by mountain biking and motocross.
ProPilot® training handlebar by German sporting goods manufacturer PRAEP®.
With this balance trainer, planks and push-ups become intense upper body workouts and the ideal preparation for exhausting cross country and downhill courses with a bike, motorcycle, snowmobile, ... Unlike purely strengthening exercises, the coordination training with the ProPilot® also focuses on working deep muscles and promotes body tension and core strength.
Three different balancing levels for each level of workout.
In just a few simple steps, you can adjust the balance trainer to suit the desired degree of difficulty of the centre piece: The wide, flat side is relatively stable and ideal for beginners. The narrower, laterally rounded side is for advanced users and makes the trainer somewhat wobblier. And the completely rounded professional side requires precise balance and maximum concentration. Because the handlebar is completely covered with soft foam, the multi-grip trainer can be gripped anywhere along its width.
With the smartphone app*, training becomes a hybrid gaming experience.
With the integrated magnetic pad, your smartphone sticks to the flattened beginner’s side – while you train on the professional side. The app counts your push-ups, pays attention to the correct flex of the arms, measures your balance and assesses the stability of execution. If someone else in your circle of friends has a ProPilot®, you can compete against each other in Battle mode. In Ride mode, you follow in virtual reality the given training routes or test your stamina and balance in Game of Bike. And in Workout mode you have the choice between different training programmes.
