CycleOps' Fluid2 Trainer utilizes Power Band technology to allow for distinct resistance changes without reaching to a lever on the unit. The large flywheel with fluid resistance delivers a smooth, realistic road feel while sturdy legs provide a stable platform for pumping out hard, 600-watt efforts and out-of-the-saddle climbs. A favorite among serious racers, the Fluid2 is easily transportable and stands up to repeated punishment by the burliest of legs for years of impressive performance.

                I received the Fluid 2 Trainer as a gift this past year (although I'd been shopping for them as well!) This is an upgrade for me in regards to my use of an indoor trainer as I had a Magnetic resistance trainer that I've put in countless miles on over the past five years. The CycleOps Fluid 2 trainer was fairly simple to set up. If you have any questions, there are some simple online videos that will give you a lot of insight. In terms of use...definitely make sure the tension is tight (will hear an audible click from the dial). I say this because my first few rides I didn't. The first thing that I noticed right away was the integration of the power curve, that the Fluid 2 trainer brings. On a magnetic trainer, you control the resistance via the trainer, and then that's pretty consistent unless you adjust it. With my old trainer I knew my levels pretty well and could, if needed, go for up to two hours or so at a pretty consistent rate, level, and results. With the Fluid2, however, I noticed right away that I was in for something different...which is a great thing. I'm having to focus more now on power output rather than just speed/distance. In turn, I'm adjusting my workouts to be more specific (not just get on and ride.) 2017 for me was a great year on the bike...through personal accomplishments and improved results. I'm excited for 2018 to see how a different trainer and program via the Fluid2 and Cycleops will turn out!

                  I just set up my CycleOps Fluid 2 tonight. It was relatively easy and straightforward. The unit seems sturdy and well built. I don't anticipate any issues, but if I do encounter any, it is reassuring to know the trainer comes with a lifetime warranty.

                  Sweet Ride... looking forward to the indoor training.

                    Smooth and most realistic simulation to an outdoor ride. Originally purchased another trainer, the quality didn't meet my expectations and return the trainer for this trainer.
