We’ve seen Zwift attempt to add game elements to cycling through their training apps but it looks like Playpulse has entered the competition. The team is giving gamers and cycling enthusiasts another way to motivate themselves in their fitness journey.
The Playpulse ONE could be your new gaming and exercise companion and you wouldn’t believe the massive price drop on its ongoing pre-order.
Aside from its small physical footprint, strong steel frame and high-quality crank built to carry up to 330 lbs, we take a look at what’s in store for this revolutionary bike and gaming station.
High-Precision Pedals and Unique Controls
The custom-built controllers and adjustable seats and steering are just some of the features that this gaming bike has. The high precision pedal sensor integrates seamlessly with the in-game movement.
The Playpulse ONE handlebars have a joystick and four buttons on each side and it’s equipped with haptic feedback. Additionally, you can also track your progress with the built-in heart-rate sensors located on the grips.
An Integrated Intel Computer
Playpulse has heavily invested in bringing gaming into your workouts. They even managed to put in a 24-inch multi-touch Intel i5-9400F CPU into the bike along with a 2GB VRAM dedicated graphics card, 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD.
