Elite Turbo Roteo Trainer
For the ultimate in indoor workouts look no further than the Elite Turbo Roteo Trainer. Unlike the standard trainer design in which your bike's rear wheel spins on a drum attached to a resistance unit, with this system the rear wheel is removed and replaced by the Turbo Roteo trainer. The advantage of this direct drive system is that under heavy load - such as during standing starts, accelerations, and intense sprint sessions - there's no slippage of the rear wheel on a roller drum as your bike's drivetrain is directly attached to the resistance unit. You'll get to use 100% of your energy together with progressive fluid resistance to experience the higher output, increased stability, and super-quiet performance of a direct drive trainer. Its integrated fluid resistance runs super smooth and feels super realistic, plus the resistance is progressive, so the harder you pedal, the greater the resistance. Not only that, its 3kg steel flywheel replicates the feel of the road and runs seamlessly, even at low RPMs. The trainer is compatible with Shimano 9/10/11-speed cassettes, frames that utilize 130mm or 135mm width hub spacing and standard quick release levers, as well as frames with 142x12 rear thru axle systems.
  • Direct connection between trainer and a bicycle's chain eliminates all forms of slippage when starting, accelerating, and during sprint sessions
  • Integrated fluid resistance is whisper quiet
  • Internal 3Kg steel flywheel ensures smooth, road-like pedaling
  • Progressive fluid resistance unit automatically increases resistance as speed increases
  • Cooling fan keeps resistance unit's temperature low and stabilizes power output during maximum efforts
  • Wheel-off design eliminates tire wear and slippage
  • Compatible with road and MTB bikes with standard diameter quick release and 130mm/135mm hubs plus 142x12 thru axles
  • Compatible with Shimano 9/10/11-speed cassettes
  • Durable, stable, and foldable frame for easy storage

Comments about Elite Turbo Roteo Trainer:

I was considering upgrading to an interactive trainer this winter for Zwift, but read about all sorts of issues with any of them due to their electronics and being finicky. I have used a wheel on fluid trainer for years (Kinetic RM), and started to use power meter pedals this past season. That was great for Zwift. I did want to go direct drive though and this was the best deal. I bought it along with the smart module that is additional cost.

The good:
+ Can be converted to smart for a little more by buying the smart module here on Nashbar. For Zwift it sends power and cadence. A little lag compared to my pedal power meter, but for this price, having power output is a bonus.
+ Plenty of resistance. Yeah, other more expensive interactive trainers push past 2k watts. If you are pushing anything near that, you most likely at least have a shop sponsorship and don't buy your own trainer. This trainer's 1K+ watts is plenty for most mortals.
+ Quiet. All you hear is the chain, and if your drivetrain is adjusted and lubed, that's barely any noise.

The not so good:
- Extremely unstable. It wouldn't have been much add'l cost for Elite to add a cross bar at the back similar to the Muin. It's like one of those three wheel ATV's that were outlawed in the 90's, you are bound to flip it at some point. (for me, it was the second time getting off) When riding seated it's stable enough. Standing sprints are dicey at best. I'm going to modify a mount for more stability soon.
- The resistance range is narrow. It's low end is a little too high for casual users. It's fine for me trying to get a good workout in, but I wouldn't recommend for someone just looking to spin lightly.

Comments about Elite Turbo Roteo Trainer:

Trainer is easy to use and set up and gives me a great workout. Wish I could use online rides to view while riding but it is not set up to do that. I did by the bluetooth adapter so I can use my Garmin 520 when I use it so I can track my workouts and gains.
