Wattbike has taken the indoor cycling community by storm in recent years, their pro model has become popular in shops and training centers, and many affluent consumers have also bought it.

Last year Wattbike introduced a cheaper model, the Atom, which offers a lot of the same features and a more attractive price point, as well as more consumer-friendly features such as Zwift integration.

The new Atom is also impeccably designed, so much so it has won the much-heralded iF DESIGN AWARD this year in the Sports / Outdoors / Bicycles category.

The Award sees over  6,400 entries across 54 countries and the winners are decided by a 63-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world.

Unlike other turbo trainers or bikes, the Wattbike Atom provides an exceptionally smooth ride experience in a small footprint, the noise output is class leading, making it suitable for home use. Wattbike claims that it is the most realistic, intelligent and effective smart trainer on Earth.

All this design and technology comes at a price and the Atom will set you back £1,499. Though considering some turbo trainers such as the Wahoo KICKR cost over £1000 and then you need to supply the bike, the Atom doesn’t seem that expensive after all.
