Product Details

CycleOps Fluid² Trainer

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.

      The resistance level is good, not great, and is not adjustable. If you are looking for a trainer that you can get a lot of resistance on, and really simulate climbing a steep hill. You should not buy this. This fluid trainer is for the basic option of getting some riding done indoors for a reasonable price. Does not have adjustable resistance, or any power readings or anything interactive.

          I've been using this trainer for a while now. Gives me a great workout. I am very happy with it it is pretty quiet with my road bike. There is great customer service with this company. I couldn't be happier with this trainer. Very easy to get your bike in and out of this trainer was one thing that drove me to this trainer. Their virtual trainer is pretty cool.

          This is a great trainer, provides smooth resistance that increases with RPM to simulate faster pedaling. Very stable and well built. It is quiet when cranking along. Only thing I see is that even when set to the widest setting for mounting it seems to be a bit tight for carbon frame bikes. I do not use this with my carbon frame bike. Excellent for aluminum

            Bought in 2010 for training through the frigid MN winters. In early 2013 I noticed the resistance started to fade and a squeak began emanating from the roller area. Called CycleOps customer service and was told to send the resistance unit in for repair and received a new unit within the week. Great product and customer service.

              I've used this trainer six days a week for two long Upstate New York winters. I have nothing but good things to say about it. Excellent trainer.

                I use it in conjunction with trainerroad most of the time. And have started using it with the virtual training with cycleops. I have a powertab hub on my rear wheel. The trainer works as it should, it is incredibly stable. Comparing it to my previous fluid trainer from Performance Bike. The jetfluid is superior in pretty much every way. It's quiet, the flywheel helps keep the trainer smooth.
