Product Description

Take your Training to the Next Level.

JetBlack is excited to launch the WhisperDrive Smart Trainer, their first electronic trainer. Three years in the making, this trainer will have cyclists looking forward to rainy days and excited about their regular indoor bike session. The WhisperDrive Smart Trainer is designed in conjunction with coaches and athletes, specifically linking software and hardware to create a TRAINER FOR TRAINERS.

A fully self-generating dual technology electronic trainer, the WhisperDrive Smart, supports ANT+ FEC and Bluetooth Smart. Delivering speed, cadence, power and features ERG mode, simulation (ride the world) and abilities to connect to your favourite 3rd party training platforms. Along with the ability to recharge your device while you train.

As well as generating enough power to run itself, the WhisperDrive Smart Trainer can actively charge devices including smartphones and tablets by means of a clever USB port.

Functioning as a wheel-off trainer, cyclists of all abilities can train for hours without wearing out their tyres. The WhisperDrive Smart Trainer’s ultra stable frame holds steady for the fastest of sprints and intervals, while easily folding away for storage.

The WhisperDrive Smart Trainer has been designed to be used in conjunction with JetBlack Pro iOS/Android App. Users can wirelessly adjust the trainer resistance and view power, speed and cadence whilst riding - without the need to install additional sensors.
In addition, users can build and share custom training sessions or ‘Ride The World’ - riding any Strava segment directly from our app.

The JetBlack WhisperDrive Smart Trainer takes training to the next level, with features including:

Dual Bluetooth Smart & ANT + wireless connectivity The JetBlack Pro App automatically adjusts resistance. The WhisperDrive Smart will connect to all your social indoor training motivators like Zwift, Strava etc.

Speed, Cadence and Power metrics Monitor and track speed, cadence and power in real time with no additional sensors.

Self Generating Power No power cables required… the WhisperDrive Smart Trainer houses a battery that recharges while you ride. By storing power, it ensures a fast startup and can be used anywhere.

USB Connection Plug in and charge a smartphone or tablet while riding.

Whisper Quiet Resistance The WhisperDrive Smart is super quiet and ultra smooth, providing a realistic road-like feel, with resistance up to 2500 watts maximum 16% slope, simulates riding conditions from comfortable tail wind on a flat road to steep and torturous climbs.

Realistic Road Feel with long coast down times.

When developing their trainer, JetBlack asked professional coaches and athletes what they would like to see in a training system. They all came back with one request; Give us the ability to send and share specific tailored training sessions directly to the trainer from anywhere in the world.

From a coaching perspective, sending training commands such as watts, cadence, speed, resistance and personal coaching tips direct to a trainer makes coaching a specific and personal experience. This enables athletes to virtually have their coach with them during their session and eliminates the need to manually load or recall specific details. The athlete can add comments to their session before sending the data back to their coach.

In their mission to supply a Trainer for Trainers they included simulation (Ride the World using Strava segments) ERG and resistance modes. Other features allow for recovery tests, FTP and threshold tests, sleep, soreness and fatigue status. This data, incorporated within the user’s training history, gives a full understanding of the effects of truly TRAINING SMART ON A SMART TRAINER.

Software a bit flaky at first but now very good

I've had this trainer for a year now. Initially the cadence readings were very wobbly and would drop out, but after a few firmware upgrades in summer 2018 everything now works fine. I have put in 1,500 miles on it on Zwift since January 2018 and am still happy with it. I like that it doesn't need to be plugged in and is reasonably quite. It seems to give a good road feel and resistance kicks in quickly when you hit a hill or in ERG mode in a workout.

Failed within a few days

Out of the box the Ant+ connectivity was flaky then after a day or so the unit stopped working completely. Really disappointed since this is a great concept but sadly not reliable enough.
