Train hard inside on a rainy day and establish a foundation for the coming season with the Cycleops Mag+ Trainer With Adjuster. CycleOps is known as a well-respected and trusted brand when it comes to bike trainers, and the Cycleops Mag+ Trainer With Adjuster represents the latest in performance and ease of use.
The quality magnetic-designed resistance system is adjustable to five levels, and gives you the added bonus of a handlebar-mounted remote shifter so you can change the resistance as you ride. It is quick to set up and provides a range of resistance suitable for the toughest of workouts.
- Sturdy and stable steel construction for a safe, worry free ride
- Five levels of magnetic linear resistance to vary the intensity of your workout
- Magnetic unit creates resistance on rear wheel for a quiet, smooth operation and allows precise calibration of resistance
- Comes with additional bar-mounted shifter so you can change the resistance without getting out of the saddle
- Sets up quickly and easily indoors or out
The Cycleops Mag+ Trainer With Adjuster is built with a high strength steel clamping mechanism for the rear wheel and your usual solid quality stanchion. Although solid in construction, the trainer itself does not have height adjustable feet which is a bit disappointing. I for one battled in our testing warehouse which has a slightly uneven surface.
The clamping mechanism itself comes with a range of adjustable settings and the rear wheel roller moves forward and back so you can easily get the rear wheel of your bike flush in the centre of the unit. Adjustable resistance on the Mag Plus comes in the form of a clicking-style shifter which runs from the trainer on a wire all the way up to the handle bars for use in motion.
In terms of noise in operation, I have found that it is actually pretty noisy, more so than other wind resistance trainers on the market. Of course it is important to remember that no turbo trainer or rolling system will be completely quiet in use. The range of resistance is a big plus in the updated Cycleops Mag+ Trainer With Adjuster, as you can use both the adjusting mechanisms on the unit as well as your bike gears to simulate testing hill climbs and sweat it out!
Solid in construction, easy to assemble and adjust and user-friendly in operation, the Cycleops Mag+ Trainer With Adjuster represents good value in a turbo trainer. When its too cold and wet to get out on the road, burn it all off inside and pedal your way to better performance.
