      This is my first smart trainer, and boy is it fun! I've been using it mainly with Zwift, but have also tried out Rouvy. No matter the platform, you're sur to enhance your winter indoor riding with this machine.

        Great trainer, after trying both I wish I would've went with the hammer just because it was such an amazing trainer. This magnus is truley incredible for the price its at. You get a $400 with a $800 power meter, all for 599, that's insane. They did an amazing job

        I have used this product for a short time, although it is better than I expected. The road feel is much more realistic than a standard trainer and it "plays nice" with Zwift.

        A bit of an adjustment from outdoor riding, takes a little getting used to especially if you team the trainer with apps such as Zwift. Training by wats is different kind of ride than I've been used to but I'm getting the hang of it.

          Use it for interval training. This replaces my old cyclops trainer which I have had since 2001.

              At first I got the powerbeam Pro but only the Ant+ model so I have to return it to get something with Bluetooth. The Magnus fit the bill. It felt cheaper than the powerbeam but once I got it setup (which also was harder to do) it got the job done and performed well. You will need to watch a YouTube video on how to setup of you are lazy like me.
