Widerun is a gamified exercise bike trainer that lets users experience the adventure and adrenaline of the great outdoors in the comfort of their own home. The sophisticated stationary bike platform is VR-powered, allowing its users to connect it to a virtual reality headset. Using their own bicycle, users are able to practice speed and control while tracking performance by simply plugging it into Widerun's platform.

Once wearing a VR headset, users can experience the rough terrain of a hillside setting or take in the beauty of scenic trails while indoors. Appealing to adventurous fitness buffs, this connected bike trainer makes improving performance an achievable feat for both experienced and amateur riders. The platform is also ideal for use during winter months when biking weather is not at its most favorable.
