The Jet Black Dynometer Trainer is an affordable trainer that gives all the training parameters you could possibly need in a very neat package. Easy to set up, with a built in heart rate monitor, the Jet Black Dynometer Turbo Trainer takes up very little space and is easy to set up straight from the box. The back wheel drops onto the spindles easily and as the whole thing is wireless there are no trailing leads or complicated set up. The Jet Black Dynometer Turbo Trainer is smart looking as well, with bright orange livery, even carried as far as a bright orange roller, which wears well.
The Jet Black Dynometer Turbo Trainer is so easy to use that you will lose no valuable time in getting it sorted. It has no memory as you would expect in a unit in this price range but during each ride it delivers current, average and maximum in power output, heart rate and speed and the trip total. The Jet Black Dynometer Turbo Trainer has an audible alarm if your heart rate goes outside the user-set maximum range. The calibrated Z1 fluid resistance head gives accurate data on all of the parameters and the readout on the Jet Black Dynometer Turbo Trainer monitor is clear and easy to follow, so you dont have to concentrate on understanding the display, but you can get on with training.

When it comes to the ride quality, the Jet Black does fall down in this category. Unfortunately this trainer does not give you a realistic riding experience, in fact, you will be very aware that you are on a trainer. I also found that riding at any level was quite an effort, despite adjusting the resistance and tyre pressure accordingly. This is indeed a shame especially because this trainer is pretty feature rich for its price tag.
In principle this is a great trainer as it measures a number of power stats which will help enhance your performance and fitness but the ride quality does let the experience down.
