In 2016 Bas van Rens was training indoors the whole winter for the Ironman Hawaii and missed his qualification by eight minutes. He couldn’t help the feeling that he had trained the wrong way. After an evaluation, his feeling was confirmed: he had trained the wrong muscles. That’s why he wanted to invent the best indoor trainer.
Let’s build the smoothest smart bike ever
He had the dream of developing an innovative smart bike with a smooth feel that no one had ever imagined possible. He quit his job in 2017 and started TrueKinetix in 2018. From then more and more team members joined him.
Angel investor and crowdfunding
The market has responded extremely positively to our new approach to indoor cycling. Both customers and press. We have been very fortunate with a group of angel investors that have supported us in the early stages of research and product development to use new and creative ways to create the best product. Now we have reached the next stage and of course, we want to take that leap in a creative way as well. That’s why we started a crowdfunding campaign. Do you want to join our movement?
In collaboration with TU Delft and TU Eindhoven, the first prototype of the TrueBike was built. That same year, NOC*NSF bought the first TrueBike, followed by the early adapters who helped us perfect the TrueBike.
How did we make the TrueBike feel like magic?
We replaced the flywheel with a smart robot and strong motor. It can fully simulate the right pedal force, calculated for your body weight and length. That’s why the TrueBike feels very smooth!
