Let’s face it, indoor training kinda sucks. But our friends at Zwift.com have made it suck a lot less. Actually they made it kinda fun.

You interact with the environment with (besides your bike) a keyboard, a mouse and a phone app. It is great as is, but we’ve come up with a more intuitive interface we call VeloKey.
