Extensive R&D has gone into the production of the Fluid 2. From the outset, the goal was to create an indoor trainer that captures real road feel. By using an updated and improved 1.24kg flywheel, CycleOps created a precision–balanced flywheel for more momentum and stability on the rear wheel.
This CycleOps Fluid 2 benefits from increased resistance by optimising the position of the sealed–cartridge bearings to produce better inertia and a very quiet ride. Using your indoor trainer simulates real road riding as the CycleOps Fluid 2 has been designed to accelerate and decelerate on an infinite resistance curve to mirror the environment outdoors.
Much like riding outdoors, simply move up and down your cassette to increase or decrease resistance accordingly. Spinning your legs - and the rear wheel - of your CycleOps Fluid 2 trainer actually feels like you're getting somewhere.
