The only interactive smart trainer with Rock and Roll technology!
Kinetic R1 Direct Drive Smart Trainer
The Kinetic R1 Direct Drive Smart Trainer has all the features you would want in a high-end smart trainer. At the heart of the R1 is a massive 14 lb. flywheel that provides a quiet, direct-drive operation and realistic road feel. You also get app-controlled interactive resistance that can simulate a slope of 20% and up to 2,000 watts as well as ANT+, ANT+ FE-C and Bluetooth FTMS compatibility.
However what really sets the Kinetic R1 apart is its Rock and Roll technology. The R1 is the only interactive, direct-drive smart trainer that allows your bike to move naturally. Unlike other trainers that hold your bike in a rigid position, the R1 can move side-to-side, providing a more comfortable and realistic feel – which leads to better workouts!
