VIDEO: Kinetic R1 'Rock & Roll' Direct Drive Smart Trainer At Eurobike

Comments Comments

The Kinetic R1, the world's only interactive, direct-drive smart trainer that allows your bike to move naturally as you pedal, is now available in Australia.

More comfortable and providing a more complete workout, the app-controlled Kinetic R1 electronic trainer immerses riders in a world of virtual training to help them enjoy training a more natural and realistic workout.

The key difference with the Kinetic system is the realistic road feel courtesy of  'Rock and Roll' technology. The unit moves slightly from side to side through the pedaling action, similalry to how a bike does. Movement is minimal when in the saddle and powering along, but get out to simulate a climb and you'll notice that familiar side-to-side sway.

Direct Drive Operation

The trainer features a large flywheel for quiet, direct-drive operation and it is the only direct-drive trainer with free movement. No rocker plate is required.

The trainer can be controlled via the Kinetic app and paired via all via ANT+™, ANT+™ FE-C, and Bluetooth® FTMS on connected smart phones, tablets and laptops to provide interactive resistance when used with platforms such as Kinetic Fit, Zwift
TrainerRoad, The Sufferfest & FulGaz. Each Kinetic R1 purchase includes an included 6-month subscription to the premium smart package in the 'Kinetic Fit' power-training app.

Mountain Biking Australia

10 years ago a little company called Rocky Trail Entertainment took its first steps into the MTB event market. Today they are one of the big players but it’s the local factor they see as crucial to their future.

Like them or loathe them, the e-MTB is here to stay and whether you are an elite racer or weekend frother there is a place in everyone’s garage for one of these beasts.

Unless you live within striking distance of a trail, transporting your bike is a must. Ben Sykes discovered Aussie brand Shingleback along with a new rack that could be a gamechanger.
