Kinetic Road Machine Smart Control Trainer

Whether it's too cold or wet out or your only time to ride is after you tuck the kids in, a trainer can be your worst best friend. Kinetic has made the pain cave experience even better by introducing their new Kinetic Road Machine Smart Control Trainer. This new training tool from Kinetic sports a new electronic resistance unit and works with their downloadable Kinetic Fit App for your Bluetooth enabled iPhone or Android phone. Also a massive flywheel keeps things smoother and more realistic.

Kinetic's Fit App combined with the Road Machine's Smart Control opens up a whole new experience to stationary training. The electronic resistance unit comes alive when the Fit App commands it to simulate rolling hills and leg crushing alpine climbs for your grueling pleasure. Their legendary steel frame keeps everything stable and is compatible with virtually all road bikes including those with thru-axles (Traxle trainer thru-axle sold separately). It's built tough, but comes with a Lifetime Warranty .

Features:
    ● Electronic Resistance unit provides variable levels of resistance through the Kinetic Fit App ● Massive flywheel for creating a more realistic experience ● Considered the most stable frame on the market ● Kinetic quick release included (Traxle thru-axle available separately) ● Lifetime warranty against defects

      Comments about Kurt Kinetic Kinetic Road Machine Smart Control Trainer:

      It was between the Kinetic Road Machine Smart Control and the Wahoo Kickr Snap. Nashbar ran a 25% off sale on the RM SC and with their 30-day no hassle return policy, it was a no brainer. Since I have a dual-sided Pioneer power meter, I didn't buy the RM SC for its power accuracy or lack thereof. I bought it to be a smart trainer on Zwift that would change resistance when going uphill and, with the massive flywheel, allow me to coast for several seconds on the flats and downhills. To that end, this trainer works great. The road fell is incredible and the construction is solid, even sprinting out of saddle. if you don't own a power meter or an ANT+ compatible cadence sensor, you will see the power as off by 10-15% - not the 5% advertised; and for some unknown reason, significantly overstated power uphill (by as much as 30%) and understated downhill by about the same. The cadence is an estimate based on a Kinetic algorithm and is fairly accurate on a flat at a constant speed but because it's an estimate, again, varies to an unacceptable level. So, if you're buying it and don't have a cadence sensor or power meter, you may be best served looking at another trainer. If you have a power meter (which already has an accurate cadence sensor) and can pick this up on sale at Nashbar, it does the Smart Trainer thing on Zwift extremely well with the added bonus of really great road feel thanks to that massive flywheel. I would recommend it with that caveat.
