SoulBeat FAQs

How does SoulBeat calculate my data?

Every bike participating in SoulBeat has a discreet power meter on the crank. This meter will capture a power and cadence measurement within 2% accuracy!

How can I increase my power number?

There are three ways to increase your power wattage: add more resistance, increase your cadence, or both. While you increase your average power, try to also keep your Beat Match high.

How do we calculate Beat Match?

To calculate Beat Match, we compare a rider’s cadence to a target, “on-beat” cadence throughout the class.

The “on-beat” cadence is calculated by an algorithm that analyzes the cadence of every rider in the room to determine the most “on-beat” rider at every moment throughout the class. We’ve analyzed bike and music data from hundreds of classes to fine-tune the algorithm.

The arms section, pushes, and isolations are excluded from the Beat Match calculation. However, if your instructor includes pushes during the arm section, we’ll include those in your power and cadence calculations.

Can I turn off SoulBeat?

Yes. To deactivate SoulBeat from your rider account, reach out to your local studio or contact us at
