Skuga is a cycling-app designed to re-ride your own Strava-rides on a smart trainer, either from Tacx (Bushido, Vortex, Neo, Genius and Flow smart trainers) or from Wahoo Fitness (KICKR and KICKR Snap). So you are your own opponent. A Skuga-ride is uploaded (of course) to Strava and you can use that ride the next time to race against your improved self. Where or whenever you did a ride: re-ride it with Skuga.

Note: Skuga is free to all Strava Premium members and will create a free Kinomap account for you.

Skuga simply delivers the best cycling experience ever for those who own a smart trainer from Tacx or Wahoo Fitness. Automatic braking, e-bike, the smoothest riding-engine ever created for an indoor trainer, Skuga has it all. Made by a cyclist, made for cyclists.

Skuga introduces true novelties. Skuga is the first indoor-trainer software ever that has e-brakes. It knows, using complex mathematics, when to brake and how hard to brake. Plus: it is also the first software ever that contains a digital e-bike! And... with Skuga you can improve your PR's indoors because it supports Strava Segments in a beautiful way. You could, if you really try hard, even ride a KOM.

You need a smart trainer from Tacx or Wahoo Fitness to use Skuga (and you can use an optional cadence sensor and heart rate belt). You also need a Strava account. Plus: you make Skuga more interesting by having an Instagram account too (if you have: chances are you will experience the essence of life while cycling). With an Instagram account you can fully enjoy the fantastic InstaWall that is a part of Skuga.

This app offers the most realistic road and off-road experience ever. Mountainbikers, climbers, rough-terrain riders: you all will be surprised! Ride in cities (without having to breath car-exhaust) and you will be stunned by the precision. Whatever ride you pick: Skuga will quickly become your favorite app.

Skuga has a special setting for when you are injured, making it possible for you to ride your own rides without putting much strain on your knees, on whatever terrain. This is a perfect training to help to get you back on the (real) road. Rides like these are uploaded to Strava too, as indoor training. If you cannot make it on that last stretch of a tough climb the digital e-bike can do that for you. The e-bike is intended to save your knees, a perfect tool for when you are injured.

The bluetooth connection puts a little extra load on the battery of your device. So make sure it is fully charged before stepping on your bike. When you put Skuga to the background it keeps running while you ride. So check your battery status now and then. Displays are all in kilometers or miles, depending on the settings of your device.

There is a lot to see in the app. Instagram-photo's and video's, taken at the location where you ride. If you like them: double-tap them. But there are interesting statistics too.


Download. Ride. And fall in love with it.

PS: Remember the segments? That appear during your ride? You won't find a greater motivator. Anywhere.

Ratings and Reviews

Great app but suffers from inaccurate resistance


Nice app, great to be able to re-ride previous rides. However, power & resistance measurement appears to be poor. Every time I re-ride a previous session i’m about 8% slower which is pretty frustrating. With a bit of tweaking this would be brilliant.

Great Training App


This app is great for training, although it can be harder on some hill climbs it's all good training. I wear a heart rate strap and it is very similar to the actual ride it's self. Only down side is some of my Strava rides I have used on this app the hill percentage gradient has been wrong. But I'm sure with an update this can be sorted. Great app and great to race against yourself. Thumbs up from me.

Great update!


Version 1.1.4 is a great step forward for Skuga.
It's far more realistic in terms of effort and gradient. I can now race against myself and feel like I was really there. Elevation changes now very smooth with no latency. Landscape mode would still be nice, but now a mature rideable app.
