Indoors is for
The Rivet is the world's first dedicated racing game for indoor cyclists.
Turn your handlebars to steer, use the app to brake, and lay down the power with your smart trainer.
Real cycling dynamics
With an accurate physics engine and full control of your avatar, power alone isn't enough to win. Technique and racecraft are crucial for victory.
Racing game modes
The Rivet is built for multiplayer racing from the ground up. Points races, elimination races, madison and more are adapted for the open (virtual) road.
Questions + Answers
Why did you build The Rivet?
We think that indoor cycling can be so much more than a way to train out of the rain. We didn't understand why there wasn't an indoor cycling game that's as fun to play as a video game, as good a workout as a structured training session and as entertaining to watch as the Tour De France. So we decided to build it!
What physical hardware do I need to play The Rivet?
You need a bike, an indoor trainer and a bluetooth power meter (many trainers have these installed directly).
I have Tacx/Wahoo/other smart trainer - can The Rivet control my trainer?
We are going to integrate as many trainers as possible, but right now we have limited support. We fully support Tacx trainers and can read power from most others (as long as they have Bluetooth). We plan on very soon building a custom integration with Wahoo and FTMS. Stay updated below to find out when.
How does steering work?
Download the Rivet app and attach your phone to your handlebars. Move your handleabrs to steer your avatar - the app will detect your turning and feed that input to the game.
How does braking work?
Download the Rivet app and attach your phone to your handlebars. You can brake using a button in the app. We have motion-detection braking (using the front camera) in our roadmap so soon you wouldn't need to press anything with your sweaty hands!
