Kinetic Road Machine 2.0 Trainer
The best fluid trainer has been made even better with version 2.0. It's quiet, smooth, and 100% leak-proof. Whether you're doing intervals, threshold work, or recovery spins, the Road Machine 2.0 has you covered. There is not another trainer that more accurately replicates an outdoor ride.
Oversize/overweight charge applies to this item.
Unlimited lifetime guarantee is rare and amazing, but perhaps unnecessary as this trainer is easy to use, store , is well designed relatively quiet. This is the only current trainer on the market I would recommend to anyone :)
I have had my Kinetic Road Machine for about 4 years. I use it through the cold Michigan winters. I use a trainer specific tire so the trainer is pretty quiet. It simulates the road better than I would expect. I have trained through the winter and when I get outside in the spring I can manage the same average speeds on the flats. Clearly, this trainer does not simulate hills, but it works great for intervals. I actually won a free trainer that was classified at "better than the Kinetic" but I used it twice before switching back to the Road Machine. I would recommend this trainer for anyone that can't ride through the winter. It works great.
Have had this trainer since December, 2013 and it has performed great. It is sturdy, smooth, and quiet. Excellent road feel. My one small complaint is the quick release mechanism. I like to have my bike very secure. After leaving the bike in the trainer for a while, I found it a little difficult to loosen the turn-knob for the quick release mechanism. This is the only reason I give it a 4-star. Otherwise it gets a 5+!
Durable trainer that is practically bombproof. Great for warming up at races or for those crappy days when your stuck inside. Very smooth consistent resistance. Highly recommend.
This trainer is awesome! Super smooth and quiet with a nice quick bike release feature. Coming of of a Blackburn trakstand defender, a magnetic trainer that I've been using for the last 15yrs, the kinetic is such a pleasure to use. This trainer is so quiet I can watch videos at normal volume and have conversations without the need to raise my voice. This trainer doesn't vibrate through the house like my old magnetic one did. With a lifetime warranty this thing is definitely worth the money.
