High Quality Stationary Bike and Game Bundle Is Available for Pre-Order at $199.99

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - Bigben Interactive, global designer, manufacturer and distributor of peripherals, today announced that Cyberbike Magnetic Edition, a stationary bike designed exclusively for the Nintendo Wii™ system, is shipping to consumers on June 28, 2011. Rated E for Everyone, the Cyberbike Cycling Sports game will be packaged together with the Cyberbike Magnetic Edition bike and sold online with retailers such as ToysRUs.com for $199.99. Where available, the bundle includes free shipping to customers in the United States.

"With Cyberbike, going for a casual ride means you don't have to leave home -- simply turn on your Wii. It is more affordable than most stationary bikes and comes with a much higher entertainment value that everyone in the family can enjoy," said Olivier Veyrac, vice president, North America, Bigben Interactive. "Three out of the top 10 current U.S. selling games1 are exergames; Cyberbike fills a void in the market, as it is the first full-size bike for the Wii."

Cyberbike Magnetic Edition
The stationary exercise bike connects to the GameCube port on the Nintendo Wii console and is compatible with all Nintendo Wii games playable with a GameCube controller such as Mario Kart™. It features an adjustable, cushioned seat and pivoting handlebars, making it perfect for players of all sizes, up to 286 pounds. Magnetic resistance is set through a tension control knob providing variable and smooth resistance for all fitness levels.

Cyberbike Cycling Sports
Developed by Eko Software and published by Agetec, Inc., Cyberbike Cycling Sports features three modes -- story, fitness and multiplayer -- each with a variety of goals that encourage players to complete the tasks as they burn more calories.
