Using gamification to transform spinning
The system combines video and audio with gamification, and a digital interface for both instructors and practitioners in the audience. It creates a feeling of cycling on country roads, or alternative terrains. On the big screen, users can follow the landscape, whilst tracking their personal development and monitoring their progression, pulse and other indicators. Users can also compete in virtual challenges as part of a team or amongst their friends, whilst still using all their existing gadgets and devises.
We wanted to develop an all-in-one solution that did not exist before.Daniel Stub, CEO Globeracer
A holistic design approach
EGGS has been the main provider of design services for Globeracer. Merging all our design disciplines, we designed the fitness concept, all digital user interfaces, the physical instructor console and the ankle strap that captures data during each race.
Besides the bikes constantly being improved, until now no one has come up with a comprehensive and innovative product that satisfies both instructors and members, as well as gymnasium owners.Daniel Stub, CEO Globeracer
Visual design to boost visual films
As the cycling films are visually strong, the infographics, icons and graphic design have all been developed to look modern and minimalistic, so as not to visually overpower the films. As spinning classes usually take place in dimmed lighting conditions, we have taken great care in choosing the right colour balance against a dark background, so as not to strain the eyes of the spinning participants. The design process has resulted in a relevant, innovative and user-friendly fitness concept.
An innovative spinning experience
Globeracer has been a serious market contender in the fitness business since 2004 and was one of the first companies to introduce projectors and entertainment systems into spinning classes. This latest version of Globeracer showcases a whole new spinning experience. Worldwide, there is no similar concept that matches Globeracer.
