The Kinetic Road Machine Indoor Bicycle Trainer

Perfect for sprints, intervals, and all-day cruising, the Kinetic Road Machine offers smooth, quiet resistance for indoor training. Like every Kinetic Trainer, the Road Machine operates with a 100% leak-proof, patented magnetic drive system. The power calibration gives you true outdoor simulation while the automatic resistance adjusts as you change speeds.

Real Road Feel with an Automatically Adjusting Workload When the rear wheel spins on a fluid trainer, an impeller rotates through liquid to create resistance and the resistance automatically increases with speed. The result is a smoother, quieter, more road-like experience. This is critical for any indoor cyclist–the faster you pedal the harder the workload gets, just like an outdoor ride.

Large 6.25 Flywheel

The Road Trainers 6.25-pound flywheel results in a smooth, road-like ride without altering the force curve. The flywheel delivers a realistic 15-second coast-down from 20 miles per hour.

Extra Stable Platform

With the trapezoidal leg design, the Road Trainer offers largest footprint of any trainer to keep power and motion focused on the flywheel. Even during hard, out-of-the-saddle pedaling, the ride remains rock steady.

Measurable and Repeatable Workload

Unlike other fluid trainers that lose resistance when the fluid is heated up, Kinetic Fluid Trainers use thermodynamically neutral liquid silicon to ensure a consistent, measurable and repeatable workload at all temperatures.

Low Operating Temperature

According to the laws of physics, energy is never lost or gained, but simply changes form. In the case of a fluid trainer, the energy of the spinning impeller inside the fluid chamber is converted into heat. Kinetic Fluid Trainers have been designed with 80 cast aluminum cooling fins to dissipate heat and provide the lowest operating temperature of any trainer.

Works with Specialty Bikes

The Road Trainer is fully compatible with wheels measuring from 22 to 29 inches (outside diameter), including bikes with flip-off skewers, breezer drops-outs, and nutted axles on track and BMX styling. A small wheel adapter is required for 16 to 21-inch wheels (sold separately).

Leak-proof Performance

Kinetic offers a 100 percent leakproof performance with a patented magnetic drive system that uses neodymium magnets to link the drive system together. This eliminates the problems caused when a physical drive shaft has to enter the fluid chamber–which means no need for O rings or seals that will eventually wear out and leak.

When the weather is all wrong , This Baby Is Alright! I purchased the Kurt Kenetic two months ago, and am thrilled with its performance and quality. If you are considering purchasing a trainer, fluid trainers are the way to go. Basically, there are four major types of trainers: Magnetic,Wind, Rim Driven, and Fluid. The later is the best, hands down! Fluid resistance trainers are more quiet, smoother and more realistic than any of the others mentioned. The only drawback to the fluid trainer is that over time they can leak resistance fluid. There…

Good trainer for an apartment dweller. I have had my Kurt Kinetic Road Machine for 1 month. I have about 7 hours of total ride time. I have a Cannondale Synapse 7 road bike and am a very new rider. I live in a 2nd floor apartment and I use the Kinetic rubber mat with my trainer to help reduce vibration. I noticed the vibrations are the worst while accelerating. Once you are up to speed, the trainer is very smooth and has little vibration. My neighbor below me says he cannot hear anything, but we have pretty good construction in…

Noisier than expected and short on resistance, but has redeeming qualities First things first – I’m Lisa’s hubby, not Lisa. We share one Amazon account – it just keeps things simpler!I ordered this to replace an aging Minoura rim-drive style trainer. The Minoura was great from the standpoint of the rim drive, but the belt and other moving parts made it noisy (in my opinion) and the belt wore out pretty quick and was a PITA to replace. But overall it was a good trainer. I was hoping a fluid style trainer would be smoother and quieter.After…
