We wish to inform you that from 17th October 2022, the free features at BKOOL will disappear and only Premium users will be able to access the platform and enjoy all of its content. The main reason for this is because maintaining these features is costly and complex, and prevents us from focusing all of our resources and efforts on the development of, and continual improvements to, the simulator.
At BKOOL, we are committed to offering you the most realistic cycling simulator and we have not stopped introducing new features and content in the app, which is currently the only one that brings together a variety of real routes, personalised workouts, three different virtual velodromes, and the chance to do spinning class videos, amongst other options. All of this is included in the same Premium subscription, which works out as 7.66€/month under the annual plan.
We will continue to work to add value to the BKOOL Premium subscription, for example, by including the Giro d’Italia Virtual as an event available within the platform, removing the additional registration fee and offering you all of its stages, prize draws and special Group Rides as a part of your Premium subscription.
However, the Giro d’Italia will not be the only event you will be able to enjoy with the new HD video + 3D simulation. In order to be able to offer you a more realistic immersive experience, we are working on recording and creating new routes all over the world on which you will be able to enjoy this new technology.
Our Group Rides will continue to feature special guests of the likes of Alberto Contador, Chris Froome, Remco Evenepoel, Julien Alaphilippe and the rest of the cyclist from the Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl team, to bring you the chance to share a unique training experience alongside your idols.
As we are aware that the most important thing for you is to keep on improving your fitness levels, we are also going to include new training plans developed by first class professionals from the world of cycling. All this while we increase the level of personalisation and social element of the Simulator, thanks to a new virtual store with many more options available, including bike models from top brands and shortly, new accessories for your 3D avatar.
The team at BKOOL is working to provide you with a more realistic, complete, fun and motivating cycling app and you are a fundamental part of our team. As such, to continue being worthy of your trust, we will drive the BKOOL peloton more than ever to ensure that your training sessions at home are a unique experience.
