Show Description

A premium smart trainer for hammering TDF stages and battling your Strava nemesis online and from your living room. The electronic brake automatically adjusts resistance by syncing to your smart device and training app of choice. Up to 800 Watts resistance lets you tackle dreaded (but necessary) hill intervals, while the frame is rock solid during sprint efforts. When it's time to unplug and train offline, it functions like a standard fluid trainer – increase your speed, and resistance increases.
