Elite Qubo Digital Interactive Trainer
Make the most of your indoor training sessions with the Elite Qubo Digital Interactive trainer, featuring a wirelessly controlled (via ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart) magnetic resistance unit. This trainer also supports the ANT+ FE-C (ANT+ Fitness Equipment Control) protocol that's the new ANT open, universal standard for a real-time wireless resistance adjustment. By using this ANT+ FE-C protocol Elite enables the user to train not just by connecting to a smartphone or tablet via Elite's My E-Training app (included with 6 free months of use) but also all third party software and apps using the ANT+ FE-C protocol such as Zwift, TrainerRoad, and BKool. Moreover, the latest cycle computers that include the ANT+ FE-C or the Bluetooth Smart protocols can directly manage all training data parameters, including resistance adjustment.

The trainer's Qubo frame utilizes Elite's Crono System which factors in a rider's weight and power to individualize the workout and better simulate riding on the road. With the Crono System, the weight of the rider rests directly on the roller as it would happen on the road, having an influence on the effect of a rider's power output. The Qubo +'s Fast Fixing system allows clamping and release of the bike with a single hand while the trainer folds down easily when not in use.
  • Magnetic resistance with wireless control of resistance level
  • ANT+ wireless and Blue Tooth Smart transmission
  • Total interaction between app/software/devices with ANT+ FE-C protocol
  • Qubo frame features Crono System that automatically makes wheel contact with the roller and allows for realistic simulation of road riding
  • Elastogel roller makes 50% less noise, reduces tire wear by 20%, and improves tire grip
  • Fast fixing locking system secures the bike to the trainer in seconds
  • Compatible with wheels 20" to 29" in size
  • Includes 6 months free use of Elite's My E-Training app

Comments about Elite Qubo Digital Smart B+ Trainer:

If you want to get stronger indoors during the winter and not lose your mind from boredom, interactive "smart" trainers are the way to do so.

The Elite Qubo Digital Smart B+ is the least expensive way to jump on this trend, and if you can grab it up when Nashbar has a 25% off sale, it's a steal.

I've used this with Zwift, FulGaz and the Sufferfest, and it works just fine with all of them, changing intensities as the software dictates. If the interval requires a big surge in power, it helps to shift up a gear or two to get the power up in to the proper range. You might be able to do a whole workout without having to shift gears, but I haven't been able to. It's a pretty minor quibble.

The trainer gives a virtual cadence reading which is OK, but seems pretty jumpy at higher RPM's. I've tried to link my Stages Power meter to the Sufferfest app, but have failed. That's a software issue, and no reflection on the Elite trainer. Still, if you have no option for an alternative cadence meter and that's important to you, this isn't the best.

As mentioned elsewhere, the Elite elastic roller relies on the tire bearing down on it with the rider's body weight, as the dropout mount pivots. When out of the saddle, there is less weight on the roller, and it can slip, leaving you producing less power than the interval demands. You have to fine-tune your position above the roller to maintain contact, and it's somewhat unnatural compared to what you'd do on the road. I'm sure this is no problem with any of the direct mount smart trainers, but they're many times the price.

Plan on purchasing additional connections for your computer and/or Ipad to make this run. I needed a Wahoo 30-pin Ant+ dongle and Apple lighting-30 pin adapter to make this work for my Ipad, and a Garmin Ant+ USB dongle to run on my PC. Then I had to download the Wahoo Ipad app and Garmin drivers from TrainerRoad for PC as well. It took the better part of an afternoon to get everything working, but once I had all the pieces in place, it all worked on the first try. You'd have similar issues with any other smart trainer, so nothing against the Elite, just FYI for anyone buying one.

I have kept my dumb CyClops Mag trainer for race warmups, as unless you have a power outlet in your car, or a generator, you won't have anywhere to plug this in. It comes with a six month subscription to Elite's training program, which I haven't used because I love the Sufferfest.

In summary, works as directed (mostly, except for out of the saddle,) after minor setup issues, can't beat the price.

About Me Casual/ Recreational

Pros

  • Fec Ant Compatible
  • Fits 24x1 520 Tires
  • Works With Zwift

Cons

  • Riding Hands Off Is Slow

Best Uses

  • Indoor Training
  • Using Zwift

Comments about Elite Qubo Digital Smart B+ Trainer:

I use this with zwift on my 60cm Redline Conquest Comp Cyclocross bike which has a cateye speed/cadence sensor. I have a USB extension cable running from the computer so the USB ANT+ dongle can lay under the bike.

One plus is that my kids 24" Redline Conquest cross bike will work with this with stock CX tires or when I change to the 24x1 (520) road tires. The Kurt Kinetic only works with the larger diameter CX tires.

One disadvantage is that if I want to ride sitting straight up with no hands on the handlebare, more weight is transferred rearward, making it harder to pedal. The Kurt Kinetic doesn't do that (but the Kurt is bluetooth not FEC ANT+.)
