You'd better have a chamois in those cycling shorts, 'cause the Elite Real Axiom Trainer kicks some serious butt. It communicates with your computer, varying the amount of resistance, reflecting real-world conditions as you ride through different courses. It also gives you the ability to race against a real human competitor on a LAN or against a software-based virtual competitor. The Real Axiom includes 14 preset courses, a 4-week training program and allows you to program your own custom courses. View personal ride stats, like speed, distance, ride-time, cadence, heart rate, and power output and store them for your own training history. By collecting all the important stats, you can see your progress as you prepare for the next season. Not only does the resistance change based on the course and rider input, the Real Axiom features two DVD's of actual European road courses. These courses are coordinated to the Real Axiom resistance unit, so you can experience the ultimate in indoor training realism.
