Product Description

The CycleOps Classic Fluid 2 is the brand’s best-selling turbo trainer. You get a great ride feel from the 1.24kg flywheel and progressive fluid resistance. The large flywheel also offers stability and control in your back wheel.

As this CycleOps turbo is a fluid trainer you get progressive resistant which gets harder, the harder you ride. You cannot overcharge the resistance. As you get fitter the oil in the turbo heats up offering more and more resistance. Levelling feet now fit 29er wheels and the Classic Fluid 2 turbo trainer is quiet compared to other options on the market.

Key Features:

  • New Resistance Unit Clutch for optimum tyre/roller engagement
  • New spring-loaded skewer clamp for secure bike engagement
  • New levelling feet and now fits 29ers
  • No adjustment needed
  • Flexible fluid resistance achieves ideal power to speed ratio
  • Flywheel precision balanced for inertia & acceleration
  • Matte black frame
  • Fluid technology for smooth & seamless progressive resistance
  • Wide range of resistance for easy spins to low cadence climbing
  • Fan flywheel keeps unit cool and resistance stable
  • Lifetime warranty
Works with Zwift when using a compatible sensor

The #1 selling trainer in the world just got better.

The Science Behind "Road-like" Feel.

Stop logging junk miles and start employing our exclusive PowerTuned technology the result of scientific and athletic collaboration. Now riding the trainer feels more like riding on the road because your wheel accelerates and decelerates on an infinite resistance curve, just like it does outside.

Professional cyclists and renowned scientist Allen Lim worked together to develop a power curve based on a hybrid of road and time trial positions, finding the point at which a speed of 25 mph overlaps with an output of 400 watts.

This point of overlap is where the optimal power curve resides and is the basis for PowerTuned technology. By training on a PowerTuned curve, you benefit from the most true-to-life speed verses power contingency, no matter what speed you ride at.

  • New Resistance Unit Clutch know ensures optimum tire/roller engagement every time you ride!

Great!

This is the first turbo trainer I've bought and only the second I've used so I don't have much to compare it to. Its definitely a bit quieter than the Elite Volare that I was lent by a friend for a short time. The build quality is good although a high pitched squeal did develop for a little while a few minutes into the first ride. Thankfully that noise has now disappeared hopefully never to return the trainer does come with a lifetime warranty though so that has eased any concerns I had.

Turbo Trainers Guide

 
 

How do turbo trainers work?

Most turbo trainers work by fixing to your bike frame with a clamp around the quick release skewer of your rear wheel. This puts your bike into a position where the rear tyre will sit on the turbo trainer’s roller drum. As you begin to pedal, your rear wheel spins and the roller drum turns.


Types of resistance

Wind resistance

Wind/Fan

Magnetic resistance

Magnetic

Fluid resistance

Fluid

Electromagnetic resistance

Electromagnetic

A great value choice if you’re looking for your first turbo trainer.

When you pedal, the fan spins creating air resistance. Resistance is smooth and progressive for a life-like experience.

Magnetic turbo trainers are the most common. They use a spinning metal disc which spins relative to magnetic discs to generate drag.

Most will have multiple pre-set resistance settings you can choose to make the ride harder.

You change resistance either by manually changing the setting on the turbo trainer or with the use of a remote positioned on your handlebar.

Fluid turbo trainers offer very smooth, lifelike resistance by spinning a thick fluid within a sealed chamber.

Fluid trainers offer progressive resistance, so the harder you pedal, the harder the resistance becomes, just like real-road riding conditions.

Electromagnetic turbo trainers are becoming more popular.

Just like magnetic turbo trainers, these use a magnetic field to generate drag on a metal disc. However, resistance can be changed wirelessly for use with apps and devices.

These turbo trainers give you the greatest level of control over the exact resistance you want.

  • Low budget
  • Smooth progressive resistance

 

  • Multiple resistance settings to challenge yourself
  • Max resistance settings can be very high
  • Within budget for many
  • Quietest resistance offering. Perfect to keep the family happy
  • Very smooth progressive resistance for a lifelike feel.
  • Refined resistance control
  • Use with apps and devices
  • Can generate very high resistance levels
  • Automatic resistance opens up versatile training sessions

What is a smart turbo trainer?

Every big turbo trainer brand now has a range of smart turbo trainers. They are the new big thing in the indoor cycle training market. These turbos use electromagnetic resistance and can be synced wirelessly with ANT+ and/or Bluetooth Smart to your 3rd party training apps, devices, power meters and sensors. This connectivity can greatly enhance your training regime and open up fun virtual training apps to keep you motivated.

Zwift, BKOOL and other training apps can automatically change the resistance of your turbo trainer opening up the possibility of sprint training, intervals and even simulate climbs of up to 20% gradients.

You can also use apps to pre-load a set training plan to follow or plug-in GPS data and ride famous cycling routes from around world while viewing the route on your computer or smart T.V.


Zwift virtual training app

Zwift logo


Zwift is powerful training app where you can challenge yourself against other real-world riders to a race in a 3D virtual environment. Zwift distinguishes itself from other training apps by offering a video game-like experience with immersive virtual worlds for you to ride in. As well as structured workouts, Zwift gives you the opportunity to join group rides with other riders of a similar ability and even compete in online races. It’s a great way to mix up your training and have a bit of fun.

Your power is measured by the watts you produce, which is then used to move you forward through the 3D environment. Speed is also adjusted by your height, weight and even the road gradient for added realism. You can learn with our Zwift guide

Zwift is compatible with a wide range of turbo trainers, indoor bikes and rollers with ANT+ or BLE enabled. Read our Zwift Compatibility guide for more information.


What is a direct drive turbo trainer?

Direct drive turbo trainers work in a different way to a traditional turbo trainer. Your bike is attached to the drive unit via the cassette, so you do away with the rear wheel entirely. This does mean it takes a bit longer to setup than a traditional turbo, but you get some useful benefits in return.

1

The flywheel is moved to a central position

This offers a more lifelike feel compared to a traditional turbo where the flywheel is placed behind the rear wheel.

2

Precision performance metrics

Most direct drive turbos are compatible with a range of power meters, sensors, apps and devices to let you track your performance data. With no rear wheel, there is no tyre slippage or roller drum tension to cause inconsistencies in your data.

3

Quiet operation

Direct drive turbos are much quieter than a standard turbo trainer as there is no roller or tyre friction to create noise.

4

No tyre wear

No rear wheel means no tyre. You don’t have to make that choice between wearing down your racing tyres or wrapping a spare onto your wheel to protect them.


Bolt-thru axle compatibility

For bikes that use a bolt-thru rear axle, a compatible axle must be purchased to fit your trainer. These are brand specific to the trainer, the thread pitch and diameter must be the same type used on your bike. Click here to identify your pitch thread


What accessories are available?

Training mat

Training mat

A training mat will protect your floor from marks and damage, as well as sweat. These mats help prevent you skidding around when you’re really powering through and they will soak up some noise.

Sweat towel

Sweat towel

Indoor cycle training will make you sweat. These small towels will cover your top tube to prevent damage and corrosion.

Riser blocks

Riser blocks

With a standard turbo trainer, your rear wheel will be slightly raised, giving the feeling of descending. A riser block will lift your front wheel for a more realistic cycling position.
