About This Product

Chain-Driven Freewheel

11-to-1 ratio chain-driven freewheel provides complete control of accelerations and allows for coasting to recover. The design allows the IC8 to feel and perform like a high-performance outdoor cycle.

0 to 3800 Watt Magnetic Resistance

The 300-degree dial offers 100 clicked increments and displays the resistance level as 0-100 on the WattRate TFT computer. The large range of watts meets the high-performance demands of athletes.

WattRate Direct Power Meter

The most accurate power meter in the industry offers a direct measuring tolerance of +/- 1%. Photocells directly measure the torsion of the spindle, and never require recalibration.

WattRate Color TFT Computer

A bright, self-powered, integrated TFT screen and a front LED. This patented feature displays training intensity for both user and trainer/coach. Connects training data to external devices via optional Bluetooth and ANT+.

WattRate Polar View

Detailed data on how exercisers apply force through each pedal stroke and the balance between legs. Improving pedal efficiency increases power and reserves energy.

Easy Adjustments

Four-way adjustments ensure a finely-tuned fit for all riders. Handlebar and seat integrated user-assist technology makes adjustments smooth and easy.

Q Factor

A 155mm Q Factor provides the feel of a real road bike. The result is added comfort and improved pedal stroke efficiency.

Reviews

Not recommended until Wattrate TFT Computer works properly.

Pairing to IPhone only works periodically. Cannot pair to Garmin 1030 or Garmin 820. Cannot track on Strava due to lack of pairing to secondary devices. No response from Customer Services after making inquiry seven days ago. Poor design of drop handlebar. Fixed drop bar is at a very uncomfortable angle. Designers need to look at how road bike bars are set up to properly duplicate. The bars on the IC8 are fixed and there is no adjustment to change angle of drop bar. Installers of bike indicated the bike was too loud and set up a service call. Service technician has ordered part to quiet bike when freewheeling. Unfortunately, technician was not knowledgeable about Wattrate TFT and suggested I contact Life Fitness directly. So far, not reply from Life Fitness after seven days of sending in initial request for help. At this point, I will be returning this bike to Life Fitness.

Good concept, not quite ready for market, technology issues

2

The concept of a fully adjustable, freewheeling power trainer is a grand idea. Unfortunately, there are few issues that make the IC8 not quite ready for market. The first computer was DOA, so LifeFitness provided a replacement unit. Tech service was excellent. The second computer worked for a brief while, then started to have the same connection and non-start issues the first unit had. The drivetrain is REALLY noisy and the freewheel does not need to be as loud as it is. It is so noisy, that using this as an indoor trainer would not be advisable. The frame and adjustability are outstanding -- sturdy, beautiful and easy to use. Unfortunately, the unreliable electronics and dropped wireless connections make this exercise bike an exercise in frustration. If these issues get ironed out, this bike could be a real winner. ANT+ only worked half the time and bluetooth only about 25% of the time. The handlebars should be more like those on the IC7 -- the tri pads and bars on the IC8 are so far away from the rider that they are unusable. I really wanted to like this bike more, but it was just too hard and too frustrating to use. There are several trainer options on the market that just work and the IC8 needs to work hard to get to this level.

This is a great product. The bike is smooth and I look forward to using it for power zone training. This will complement the training that I do on my Peloton bike.

I've taken delivery of 2: Neither work!

I was at home last week when Abt delivered my second LifeFitness IC8 with a Wattrate TFT Computer ("Computer") and MyRide display. I climbed aboard and pedaled for 30 seconds in my suit. Set in quick start mode, the Computer provided data in all windows: rpm, resistance level, watt, kcal, mph, and miles. I went down the next morning to work out and set the Computer in quick start mode. This time the Computer showed only the resistance level; all other functions remained blank. After 10 seconds of pedaling the Computer went into pause mode. I pressed the resume button and continued to pedal at 90 rpm. Again the Computer showed the resistance level, but did not show rpm, watts, kcal, mph, or miles. This happened repeatedly over a period of several minutes. I tried to reset the Computer by restarting: the same thing happened. I tried to get the Computer to function by pressing the lap button: it made no difference. I tried to start the bike with the Computer in heart rate mode. I was able to pair my chest strap and set my fitness level, age, and weight. When I started to exercise, the Computer showed my heart rate and resistance level but did not provide any other data. My first IC8 behaved the same way except that it would not pair with my heart rate monitor and, after the first day, it stopped showing even the resistance level. Abt could not repair, concluded that the IC8 wasn't transmitting data to the Computer, and replaced the IC8. The IC8 does not come with a user manual. I downloaded the Wattrate TFT Computer (Part No: 320-00-00011-01) manual from LifeFitness, and have followed the instructions in that manual. I cannot find anything in that manual to indicate why the Computer isn't reporting data. LifeFitness appears to be unresponsive to Abt.
