A few riders are switching back to magnetic trainers from fluid trainers for a few reasons. Fluid trainers are great in the mid-resistance range where the bulk of endurance work takes place but the newer, quality magnetic trainers provide a wider range of resistance just by shifting gears. This allows the light climbers to get an easy recovery spin while strong sprinters and time trialists can also melt their legs in 10-15 seconds for quality max strength and power work. Finally, though the seals on the newer fluid trainers are generally reliable a mag trainer will never leak.
The Cycleops Magneto trainer features exclusive Power Band Technology gives you access to a wide resistance range - from easy spins to leg stimulating sprints - without ever touching the unit. A cam-lever tightens resistance unit with one movement making it fast and easy to setup.
