plates ensure correct exercising position.
- Sturdy yet compact frame provides
stability during use.
- Natural, smooth elliptical motion is easy
on the joints.
The heart rate measurement is
based on electrical impulses registered from the heart, whereas pulse meters
measure peripheral circulation e.g. via an ear clip or a handgrip to
calculate the pulse rate. If you use a heart rate controlled exercise
program or if the heart rate value is of importance to you, Tunturi
recommends using a transmitter belt for continuous heart rate measurement.
Pulse measurement is in principle equally accurate, but functionally more
limited and for some users unreliable way of measurement
Permanent Magnet Brake
In the permanent magnet system there is a
magnet caliper or fork, i.e. a moving element to which pieces of magnet are
attached. The resistance is generated by adjusting the distance of the
magnets to the flywheel: the closer to the flywheel the magnets are, the
greater the resistance to the flywheel and cranks. The features of this
1. no wearing parts, maintenance free, very
low probability of any malfunctions
2. practically no need for re-calibration: the products are calibrated in
the production, and basicly only product abuse can alter the calibration.
The re-calibration is possible with a dynamometer
3. quiet in use as there are no wearing parts
4. the permanent magnet brake can be adjusted either electronically with the
assistance of a servomotor from the console or manually with an adjustment
5. the magnets Tunturi uses have an effect radius of about 10 cm, and they
do not cause radiation or electronic disturbances to their environment
6. very smooth resistance feeling, impact-free
The basic idea of profile scaling is to
ensure that you can always use the pre-set profiles to maximum effect.
Everyone knows that the required training intensity varies – sometimes you
want to exercise hard, sometimes an easy and short exercise is just right.
In order to take the exerciser’s current training capacity into account, the
exerciser must have the possibility to adjust, i.e. to scale the intensity
and duration of the pre-set profiles.
The scaling of intensity (speed, elevation,
watt, Nm, HR) can take place either before or during training: if you notice
that the profile is too low for you, you can scale it upward simply by
pressing one key until the desired level is reached. Similarly, scaling the
profiles down is possible. In scaling, the pre-set profile form will remain,
but the profile intensity level will go up or down. Prior to the start of
the exercise, you can set the desired duration (time, in some cases
distance) of the profile.
In brief, scaling is the ultimate application
for personalized, effective training.
In the pre-set
training profiles, the changes of training intensity will take place
automatically - this makes training interesting and motivating. Furthermore,
Tunturi have carefully designed the pre-set training profiles for various
exercise targets, and they give maximum effect towards the desired exercise
target. In brief, the greatest benefit of the pre-set profiles is that they
make effective training very easy.
In cycles and ellipticals,
Tunturi uses another three profile modes:
1. Watt (or power) profiles in which the
training intensity is pre-set in watts (W); in display, the higher the
profile, the higher the intensity in watts. In these profiles the wattage is
independent of the pedaling speed (rpm).
2. Resistance profiles in which the training intensity is pre-set in Newton
meters (Nm). In these profiles the torque, i.e. the power needed to turn the
cranks is pre-set. Again, the higher the displayed profile, the higher the
intensity. However, the pedaling effect is the same as with a single-speed
bicycle – the faster you pedal, the higher the output power (= intensity /
watts). In other words, in these profiles the wattage is dependent of the
pedaling speed (rpm).
3. Heart rate controlled profiles in which the profile shows the run of
heart rate during the exercise.
