If it's important to you to make every workout count, the Fluid2 trainer is the most valuable weapon you can add to your indoor training arsenal.
|Trainer Type:||Turbo Trainer|
The Power Training Kit comes with the PowerTap PowerCal Power Meter and a Joule cycling computer so you can train with power.
The PowerCal is the world's first-ever power meter calculated from heart rate. The algorithms in PowerCal translate heart rate data into the vernacular of power-based training- watts, kilojoules, peak power, etc.
Use the PowerCal with the included CycleOps Speed Sensor, which can be configured to detect speed or cadence. The Joule is the perfect training companion offering 18 metrics to help you measure your progress including power, heart rate, speed, distance, and altitude.
CycleOps engineers designed the Fluid 2 to capture real road feel through the use of a 2.75 lb individually precision–balanced flywheel for more momentum and stability of your rear wheel.
They also adjusted fluid levels for better resistance and improved the position of sealed–cartridge bearings for better inertia and an ultra quiet ride that ensures increased wattage as you increase your speed.
And just like riding outside, simply shift gears to increase or decrease resistance. When you spin your wheels on the Fluid2 it feels like you're actually getting somewhere.
Using PowerTuned technology and the PowerTap powermeter Cycleops can graph the amount of power it would take for an average rider to maintain a specific speed while on the bike trainer. Take a look at the resistance curve below. The graph depicts speed horizontally on the x-axis versus power vertically on the y-axis:
Stop logging junk miles and start employing the exclusive PowerTuned technology—the result of scientific and athletic collaboration. Now riding the trainer feels more like riding on the road because your wheel accelerates and decelerates on an infinite resistance curve, just like it does outside.
Professional cyclists and renowned scientist Allen Lim worked together to develop a power curve based on a hybrid of road and time trial positions, finding the point at which a speed of 25 mph overlaps with an output of 400 watts.
This point of overlap is where the optimal power curve resides and is the basis for PowerTuned technology. By training on a PowerTuned curve, you benefit from the most true-to-life speed verses power contingency, no matter what speed you ride at.
Cycleops are world famous for producing high quality cycle trainers. However, the company origins weren’t in cycling, believe it or not they started with producing curtain rods! The story goes that the Graber brothers sold their window products company and needed something to do. They experimented in their garage and came up with a best-selling bike rack. In 1989, Chris and Sara Fortune purchased the company when it was selling 80,000 bike racks a year. In 1990, a high-end brand of bike rack was launched, branded as “Saris.” Today Saris is a leading supplier to the bicycle industry in over 30 countries. The company expanded in 1999 by acquiring the Cycleops brand of bike trainer. As usual they set out to improve on the design and by 2001 they created a new trainer frame and in 2002 they launched the world’s first progressive resistance Cycleops magnetic trainer. It was in 2001 that they heard about a hub that could measure power output and they jumped at the chance to bring this product to cyclists. They bought the company that invented Powertap and started a new round of Cycleops cycling innovations.
