The new smart bikes like Wattbike Atom and Wahoo Kickr provide full integration with Zwift but I really like the unique sway capability of the Real Ryder spin bike. Using the Real Ryder the connection would be with a power meter and heart monitor to Zwift.
How much do I give up in the Zwift experience not having bike like shifting or direct app control? I’d have only watts, cadence and heart rate to guide level of effort. But I would gain the ability to move and engage the core that comes from Real Ryder. I’m not sure if it’s a good trade-off. Any opinions from Zwift users who may have moved from limited connectivity to a fully integrated smartbike?
Its an expensive decision so I want to due as much due diligence as possible. Thanks for any replys.
