If you aren't racing, then it should be snugly secured in your forks. The AIRhub is great for a number of situations;
I find inner city commuting too short for training, the AIRhub works me so I'm sweaty when I get to work. Short, intense morning & evening sessions through the neighbourhood keeps me fit and healthy. Without the AIRhub, speeds would be unsafe or the intensity too low.
That means it’s working. It's normal for a light tapping to be felt when resistance is applied.
The new BLE protocol uses almost no energy. Remember to activate your lock screen. The app will still run in the back ground, however after a really long coffee stop you will have to refresh it. For worst case, turn on airplane mode then turn on Bluetooth and enjoy saving battery on disruption free ride.
By using electromagnetic braking, the AIRhub provides fluid resistance, which it's very different to riding with your brakes on. The AIRhub should actually help improve your pedal stroke. A slightly higher resistance makes riding with a lazy pedal stroke difficult. The AIRhub will naturally train you to deliver power through the dead spot at the top and bottom of the pedal stroke. A smoother more even pedal stroke is the beginning of a more efficient ride.
Red goes faster.
The AIRhub will work even better for Triathletes. More training in less time. It allows high quality training in the Aero position to become safe and easily achievable. No need to travel for miles to find safe roads. Long high intensity sessions can be done on a bike path.
One of our design parameters was to make your life as easy
as possible. As a standard, each AIRhub includes our Smartphone App, automatic Bluetooth connect, no batteries, complete wireless connectivity, a super stable connection and a quick release skewer. All you need is a tyre and
tube and you are ready to ride 5 minutes after unpacking. Just remember - press pause on the App before closing, to turn off the resistance.
See our 10-Step Quick Start Guide for more information.
Yep. Most 700c forks work. We highly recommend quality forks, as with most bicycle equipment. The only thing you will need to look out for is if your fork protrudes deep beyond the axle. Send us an email with a photo if you are unsure.
The AIRhub is awesome, so any training that incorporates it will benefit. We recommend using the AIRhub under the guidance of a coach for MAXIMUM results. We plan to build stronger coach centric features in later versions of the mobile application.
No. Anyone who can search for a free AIRhub can make a secure connection to it. If you go riding with your mum/coach, you can have her phone connect to your hub and control it on the ride.
No. Unlike ANT+, Bluetooth is a secure handshake connection. Once an AIRhub is paired to a phone it will become invisible and no one can connect to it. If for some reason someone is able to connect to your AIRhub before you do, you won't be able to find it when you start the App. If this happens you need to find the paired phone and disconnect it before you will be able to pair.
The App will remember the last AIRhub it connected to and always try to find it. If you want to find another AIRhub you must first forget the current one in the settings page. The App will then search and display all available hubs. The same goes for Bluetooth heart rate monitors.
